Ingredients
  • 1 lb chicken breast, raw
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed (300 grams)
  • 4 cups sweet potato, cubed (453 grams)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil (1/4 fl oz)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed (1 oz)
  • 1 tbsp Flavor God Garlic Lover's Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Brine chicken breast for 5-12 hours in a salt solution like in this recipe.

  2. Rinse chicken after removing from the brine. Pat dry with a paper towel, then rub with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, chili powder, and 1 tsp Flavor God Garlic Lover's Seasoning.

  3. Pound thicker end of chicken down so that the breasts are an even thickness throughout.

  4. Place trimmed asparagus spears on a piece of foil, season with 1 tsp Flavor God Seasoning, and add 1 tbsp of cubed butter. Loosely wrap ends of foil into a packet. Set aside and repeat process with sweet potatoes.

  5. Pre-heat grill to 400 degrees. Add foil packet of sweet potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes before adding chicken to the hot grill. Grill for about 5 minutes on one side before flipping and adding asparagus foil packet to the grill. Continue grilling chicken for another 6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees (carry through heat will bring it to 165 degrees).

  6. Slice chicken before serving alongside asparagus and sweet potatoes.
