Red and yellow peppers, orange sweet potatoes, scallion greens and lime—okay, so we might be missing the BIV part of ROYGBIV, but the first four letters are well-represented on this plate. The bright and colorful veggie jumble is bursting with concentrated, oven-roasted flavors, while the spice-rubbed chicken breasts on top bring plenty of Southwestern flair.

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes, then cut into ½-inch cubes. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in oven until tender, about 25 minutes total (we'll be adding more items to the sheet after 10 minutes).

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in center, 5-6 minutes per side.
