Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add potatoes, half the BBQ seasoning and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to an unlined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender and golden-brown, 22-25 min.
Meanwhile, heat a small pot over medium heat. When hot, add blueberry jam. Cook, stirring constantly, until jam starts to melt, 1-2 min. Add BBQ sauce. Cook, stirring often, until sauce is smooth and jam has fully melted, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat, then set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season all over with salt, pepper and remaining BBQ Seasoning. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Sear until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (NOTE: Chicken will finish cooking in step 4.) If you've opted to get chicken breasts, prepare and cook them in the same way the recipe instructs you to prepare and cook the chicken thighs.
Transfer chicken to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a spatula, spread blueberry BBQ sauce over tops of chicken. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
When chicken and potatoes are almost done, add vinegar, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1 tbsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk until sugar dissolves. Add spinach to the bowl with vinaigrette, then toss to coat.
Thinly slice chicken. Divide chicken, potatoes and salad between plates. Sprinkle salad topping mix and crumble goat cheese over salad.
