Late-summer weather calls for easy cooking and classic flavors, and this all-American meal delivers. To make the most of our tangy-sweet barbecue sauce, we’re coating our chicken twice—once before baking it, then again afterwards. We’re also making a sweet potato salad with a bit of marinated shallot, and quickly sautéing green beans with garlic.

Coat & bake the chicken:
1 Coat & bake the chicken:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat a medium saucepan of salted water to boiling on high. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Lightly oil the foil. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place the seasoned chicken on the prepared sheet pan; top with half the barbecue sauce and half the vinegar. Turn to thoroughly coat. Arrange the coated chicken skin side up. Bake 19 to 21 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven. Set aside in a warm place.

While the chicken bakes, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and large dice the sweet potatoes. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Thinly slice the chives. Peel the shallot and mince to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra); place in a bowl. Add the remaining vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

While the sweet potatoes cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste.
