Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch wedges. Add sweet potatoes, half the Dill-Garlic Spice Blend and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss coat. Roast in the bottom of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender and golden-brown, 22-24 min.
Meanwhile, trim green beans. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Finely chop spinach.
Line another baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside. Combine spinach, chicken, remaining Dill-Garlic Spice Blend, half the garlic, 3 tbsp Parmesan, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized croquettes (16 for 4 ppl). (TIP: Dampen your hands with water to form croquettes with ease. It will make the mixture stick less.)
Arrange meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the middle of the oven until golden-brown and cooked through, 10-12 min.**
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add green beans and 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring occasionally, until water evaporates, 4-5 min. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until butter is melted, garlic is fragrant and green beans are tender-crisp, 1 min. Remove from heat. Add remaining Parmesan, then stir to coat green beans. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Stir together 1/2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) and garlic Parmesan dressing in a small bowl. Divide roasted sweet potatoes, green beans and chicken croquettes between plates. Serve garlic Parmesan dressing on the side for dipping.
