Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F and wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Finely chop almonds. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add almonds to dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 1-2 min. Transfer to a shallow dish. Add 1 tbsp oil, then panko, to the same pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 1-2 min. Remove pan from heat. Add toasted panko, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper to the shallow dish with almonds. Stir to combine.


Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Carefully slice into centre of each chicken breast – parallel to cutting board – leaving 1-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book. Coat chicken all over with mayo. Press firmly into almond-panko mixture and cover all sides. Transfer coated chicken breasts to a parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle over 1 tbsp oil.


Bake chicken in middle of oven, until golden-brown and cooked through, 20-25 min.** Meanwhile, combine sweet potatoes with 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approx. 1 inch) in a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 12-15 min.


While sweet potato cooks, trim beans. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter, then beans. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Add garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper.


When sweet potatoes are done, drain and return them to the same pot. Using a masher, mash in maple syrup and 2 tbsp butter, until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
