One order, two meals—no sweat! With our Dinner + Lunch recipes, you’ve got supper covered plus a whole new dish for your midday meal the next day made from the same set of ingredients. It starts with a traybake supper, as chicken breasts and sweet potatoes (sprinkled in sweet sesame seed spices) go in to roast. Serve with an Asian-accented slaw of edamame, radishes and celery crunch. In a nifty lunch move, the slaw is reheated (yes, hot slaw!) and worked into lime-zested rice, with thin slices of that tasty chicken. ***Lunch cooking time: 5 min.

Roast the chicken & sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Medium-dice the sweet potatoes. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Add the chicken to the pan and roast, stirring the potatoes halfway, 25 to 30 min., until the chicken* is cooked through and the sweet potatoes are golden brown and tender.

Cook the rice
Meanwhile, zest the lime. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 lunch portions) and 1 tsp salt (double for 4 lunch portions); bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add the lime zest and remaining spices. Fluff and set aside in the fridge.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, juice the lime. Halve the radishes lengthwise and thinly slice crosswise into half-moons; place ½ in a bowl of water and set aside in the fridge. Thinly slice the celery crosswise on an angle. In a medium bowl, make the sauce by combining the lime juice, soy sauce, chili sauce and S&P.
