Sheet Pan Zesty Yogurt Chicken + Sweet Potatoes

Sheet Pan Zesty Yogurt Chicken + Sweet Potatoes
I love sheet pan dinners like this because they are so easy to make. This Sheet Pan Zesty Yogurt Chicken + Sweet Potatoes creates juicy and flavorful chicken, that pairs nicely with sweet and tender roasted sweet potatoes. The best part is that this meal takes less than 30 minutes to cook in the oven, making it the perfect weeknight meal. I like to serve this meal with a green salad, but it is perfectly fine on its own! Looking for more easy sheet pan recipes? Check out some of my favorites!
