Expert Tips

  • Bake sweet potatoes the day before preparing this casserole for a quick weeknight meal.
  • Hold the chicken, and turn this into an easy side dish for the holidays!
  • The fall and winter seasons are prime time for comfort food, but sometimes those creamy pasta casseroles can get a little heavy. This chicken and sweet potato casserole is a great alternative for when you’re looking for something that’s delicious and comforting, but a little better for you. It’s packed with kale and sweet potatoes, which means it’s chock-full of nutrients. Just one sweet potato (skin included) is an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamin C and fiber—and it’s low in calories! Similarly, kale is a low-calorie vegetable and is considered one of the most nutrient-rich foods out there loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber.
