grilled: sweet potatoes and seasoned chicken breast

Last night I prepped food for my lunches and I had sweet potatoes that needed to be used. My mom bought me a lovely stone/grill that can be used on stove top and in the oven.

For the sweet potatoes:
  1. pre heat oven to 375F
  2. wash them first, then slice them into 1" thick slices and lay them out on the pan/grill
  3. brush with olive oil (or any oil you like), season with pepper, wee bit of salt, and garlic powder
  4. pop them in the oven for about 15 minutes and check on them. Flip them when they have nice grill marks
  5. put them back in for another 10-15 minutes or until they're the tenderness you enjoy

For the chicken breasts:
  1. thaw them out (or almost: mine were still a tiny bit frozen since I took them out after work)
  2. cut off any excess fat (ick) and lay them on the pan/grill
  3. season both sides with: salt and pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and chili powder
  4. with your oven still at 350F, put them in for 15 minutes
  5. check on the grill marks and flip them. Return them to the oven for 5-10 minutes
  6. I have a meat thermometer so I went by that. 165F is a "safe" temp for chicken breast but I'm so paranoid I still cook mine to 170F or 175F. Mine last night were actually 190F lol.

I let them cool for a bit while I relaxed and watched tv. Once they were cool I portioned them out into lunch containers :)

My lunch for today: no greens or veggies because I figured I would be full after eating these tasty yumyums :)
