Make the sweet potato mash
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and medium-dice the sweet potatoes. Add the sweet potatoes and 3 whole garlic cloves to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 14 to 16 minutes, until very tender when pierced with a fork. Reserving ¾ cup cooking water, drain the sweet potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp butter. Using a fork (or potato masher), mash the mixture, gradually adding the reserved cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency; season with ⅓ of the spice blend and S&P to taste. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the sweet potatoes cook, preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the broccoli head into bite-size florets; peel and slice the broccoli stem into rounds, discarding the bottom inch. Halve the zucchini lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half-moons. Mince the remaining garlic clove.

Prepare & bake the chicken
Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. On a plate, combine the panko and almond flour; season with ⅔ of the remaining spice blend. In a medium bowl, add the mayonnaise; season with S&P. Working one piece at a time, thoroughly coat the chicken in the seasoned mayonnaise (letting the excess drip off), then in the panko mixture (pressing to adhere). Place the breaded chicken breasts* on a lined sheet pan as you go. Transfer to the oven and bake, 18 to 22 minutes (10 to 14 minutes for chicken fillets), until golden brown and cooked through. If desired, switch the oven to broil and cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown.

Sauté the vegetables
While the chicken bakes, in a large pan, heat 1 tbsp butter on medium-high. Add the broccoli and sauté, partially covered, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, until beginning to brown. Stir in 2 tbsp water and sauté, stirring occasionally, until evaporated. Add the zucchini and sauté, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until beginning to soften. Add the green peas and minced garlic; sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.
