Mustard Baked Chicken with Pretzel Crusted Chicken

Recipe previously given:  It Takes a Village

pretzel chicken & sauce

Sage Scented Mashed Sweet Potatoes
(per person – multiply as needed – for reference I made about 5lb worth of sweet potatoes)

mashed sweet potato

1 medium sweet potato, peeled & chopped into large chunks
1-2 tsp fresh sage, roughly chopped (or finely chopped if you’re using a masher)
1 Tbsp parmesan (or to taste)
Pat of butter (size of pat will depend on how decadent you’re feeling)
3-4 Tbsp buttermilk

Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add the sweet potatoes and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes.  Drain well, and then return to the heat to cook off any excess water.

Using either a masher (will give you a chunkier texture), or an immersion blender, puree the sweet potatoes with all the remaining ingredients – adding more butter/buttermilk as needed to give you the taste/texture you want.  Season to taste with salt/pepper.

Grilled Apples
