This classic meal is elevated with a few deliciously rich, cheesy twists: a coating of parmesan adds lightly crispy texture to simple seared chicken, while creamy goat cheese mashed into our sweet potatoes lends a hint of irresistibly tangy flavor. A side of tender roasted broccoli provides perfect balance for it all.
