Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the vegetables and chicken

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel the shallots and cut in half lengthwise.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons. On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], toss the sweet potato, shallots, and garlic cloves with the house dressing and 1 to 2 teaspoons butter, if using; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], toss the chicken with 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil and season with salt and generously with pepper.
Roast, stirring the vegetables and turning the chicken halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned and the chicken is cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven.
While the chicken and vegetables cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the dish

  • Coarsely chop the dates, checking for any pits.
  • Coarsely chop the pistachios.
