    Easy Chicken Sweet Potato Bowl + Sauteed Kale

    I was going to call this recipe an Easy Buddha Bowl with Sauteed Kale. But I discovered a Buddha Bowl is meant to be made with a vegetarian protein source.

During November and December, I pretty much lived off of slow cooker chicken and rice because of how packed my schedule was. Now that I’m in a dieting phase, I want to switch up my recipes and have a variety to choose…
