Step 1

1. Prep ingredients
Halve onion, then peel and thinly slice lengthwise, about 2½ cups. Peel sweet potatoes, then cut into 1-inch pieces.

2. Caramelize onions
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium. Add onions. Cover; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Uncover; add a pinch each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until deeply browned, 12–15 minutes. Add water to skillet, 1–2 tablespoons at a time, when skillet starts to brown. Transfer onions to a bowl. Wipe out and reserve skillet for step 4.

3. Make sweet potato mash
In large saucepan, combine sweet potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt; cover with ½-inch water. Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover, and cook until fork-tender, 6–7 minutes. Add peas and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain potatoes and peas, then return to pot. Coarsely mash with 2 tablespoons butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.

4. Brown chicken
Pat chicken dry and season all over with 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in reserved skillet over medium-high. Add chicken to skillet and cook 2–3 minutes per side, until lightly browned and cooked through.

5. Finish & serve
Transfer onions and ⅓ cup water back to skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until onions are warm and liquid is mostly evaporated, 2–3 minutes. Serve with mashed sweet potatoes and peas. Enjoy!

6. Make it picky eater proof
Picky eater(s) at the table? Cook the sweet potatoes and peas separately instead of together in step 3 and serve the chicken alongside the veggies. Keep the caramelized onions on the side too for those that wish to partake!
