Oh, and did I mention this is a healthy meal? That’s right. Not only is this Harvest Chicken Casserole easy to make and delicious, but you’ll be getting lots of protein and antioxidants! See how it’s done in the video below!

Harvest Chicken Casserole

To get started on this scrumptious fall dinner, preheat the oven to 375F. Then, toss sweet potatoes, onion, Brussels sprouts, garlic, paprika, and cumin into a 9×13 baking dish. Drizzle with half of the oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to coat all sides.

Pour chicken broth over everything and cover the dish with aluminum foil. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until veggies are fork-tender.

While that’s cooking, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sear until golden brown on the sides, and almost cooked through, 3-4 minutes in total.

When veggies are done, stir in chicken pieces and cranberries. Sprinkle with cheese and return the dish, uncovered, to the oven. Bake 10-12 more minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted. Top with sliced green onions, pumpkin seeds, and chopped parsley. Serve up hot!
