Ready In:




  • Pierce the skin of the yam a few times and cook in microwave oven on high for 3-4 minutes or until the yam is about 80% cooked. (You can sub a leftover baked yam for this step).
  • Remove from microwave and peel off skin. Dice into bite sized pieces.
  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium to medium high heat and coat with some cooking spray (I use butter flavor). Add in the chicken and diced yams. Let it cook without tossing or stirring for about 3 minutes, then give it a stir or toss.
  • Meanwhile, dice the apple leaving the skin on. Add these to the chicken and yams once they've been in the pan about 5 minutes. Add the seasonings.
  • Continue to cook another 5 minutes or so stirring/tossing occasionally until the apple softens (hit it with more cooking spray if needed).
  • Enjoy!

  1. Pretty good recipe. Flavors went nice together.
  2. This was wonderfully autumnally yummy! I served this over toasted english muffins with hollandaise. So good! I added some sage and rosemary as well to really give it some flavor, but its a wonderful unique brunch dish.
  3. I made this recipe a while back, and it was very good. I added some pineapple juice during the cooking process and it gave it a nice undercurrent of a zing!


Welcome to my page! I live in Central Washington State with my husband and Golden Retriever, Hallie. I'm back in my hometown after earning my Bachelor's Degree, and I work at a Brokerage firm. I've loved cooking my whole life, and really delved into it during high school when I got put in charge of cooking for my family of seven, who were all picky eaters or had dietary restrictions. I really like to experiment in the kitchen- its one place where my creativity can really flow. I rarely measure ingredients unless I'm baking- but I occasionally bust out the scales, spoons, and cups so I can post accurate recipes. Nowadays I cook lightened versions of my favorites. I joined Weight Watchers in April 2007 and have lost 40 lbs on the program- it has really changed my life. I recently started working as a receptionist for Weight Watchers meetings on top of my full time job because I enjoy the program so much. WW has helped out my Hubby, too- He has lost around 30 lbs as well just by eating my lighter cooking :) I like the challenge of making healthy but delicious food. My favorite TV Chef is Alton Brown- I own all of his cookbooks, and like how he has a reason for everything he does. Plus, I like to jerry-rig things and he's a sort of MacGyver in the kitchen. My biggest challenge in cooking is making food that appeals to me while not disgusting my husband. He likes very simple, and somewhat bland foods. He hates garlic and onions, so I've really had to scale back there, though I won't give them up completely. I love to try new flavors and cuisines, while he would be happy eating Hamburger Helper. I'm just getting in to baking bread. I've tried using my KitchenAid mixer and actually prefer doing it by hand- nothing better than hot bread fresh out of the oven! I'm also a regular poster in the exercise/High activity forum since I started running earlier this year. My plan is to participate in all our local fun-runs.
