This recipe is adapted from the One and Done Cookbook and posted with permission from Author (Gina from Skinnytaste). The original recipe uses russet potatoes. So, feel free to use those! I opted for sweet potato for extra nutrients.

Stove Top or Dutch Oven Option – To make this in a large pot or Dutch oven, increase the water to 6 cups. Bring the water to a boil, and cook all of the ingredients except for the corn, covered, for 20-25 minutes on medium-low heat or until the potatoes are tender. Then, add the corn, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Cooking times may vary based on the size of the potatoes and chicken.
