The original recipe was a maple mustard combination, but I am a huge fan of honey mustard, so I swapped the maple syrup out. I definitely make a lot of meals that call for honey, which is always questionable in the paleo and nutrition world, so I wanted to give my quick thoughts on both sweeteners. First, always check the ingredient label and buy unprocessed honey and maple syrup. Second, although these ingredients are a natural food source, they are still sugar and should be eaten in moderation. I try not to use TOO much in my meals and almost always reduce what the recipe calls for, so that when I portion my meals out I never actually have a tablespoon of the ingredient in each meal. Basically, I use them in moderation and believe they are the best sweetener or choice if I am going to use one. That is my take on them though. PaleoLeap has an article on the honey and maple syrup debates as well, and more information on Paleo in general, if you want to research more and form your own opinion.
About the recipe though... I mention below that I roasted the sweet potatoes separate from the chicken and asparagus. I only did this because I diced up a ton of sweet potatoes though, so if you don't use too many sweet potatoes you might be able to fit everything on one baking sheet. Besides that, this recipe was super simple to prep and bake on one pan. I definitely suggest broiling for 3-5 minutes at the end to make everything a little crispier too. If you like honey mustard (or maple mustard), then I think you will also enjoy this one!
