I've been eating a lot of Super Fast Instant Pot Sweet Potato Mash lately, okay more like every week, so I decided it was time to make my sweet potatoes more fun and with a little more flavor. Enter the bacon! I love making bacon in the oven, then placing vegetables (especially Brussels) or sweet potatoes in the remaining bacon fat, adding a little salt, then baking them. That is seriously the easiest way to make a delicious side. Since this part was my deciding factor in the meal, I found a chili dusted chicken to quickly grill up and pair with it. I have to be honest though, the chicken did not turn out flavorful enough for me, and I am someone who doesn't need a lot of flavor. I think next time I'd add a teaspoon of salt, add some olive oil, and make sure not to cook the chicken for so long. If you have some fun grilling spices then this would be the perfect time to try those out, or you can go ahead and try this chili dusted version to see if you enjoy it, or at least make it better then I did. Either way, the point of this meal was the sweet potatoes and bacon and that turned out more delicious then ever. I am looking forward to eating those all week long!
