- 8One piece at a time, dip chicken fillets in the beaten egg (letting the excess drip off), then in the almond mixture (pressing to adhere) and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cook in the center of the oven until golden brown and cooked through; about 18 minutes.
- 9Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes; transfer to a small saucepan. Add water to the saucepan, covering the potatoes, cover with a lid, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until they are tender when pierced with a fork, 8-10 minutes.
