Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the sweet potatoes into bite-size pieces. Trim and discard the stem ends of the string beans. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Roast the vegetables
On a lined sheet pan, toss the sweet potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 14 to 16 minutes, until beginning to soften. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and add the string beans; drizzle with oil and season with S&P. Toss the vegetables and arrange in a single, even layer. Return to the oven and continue to roast, 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Toast the pecans
While the vegetables roast, heat a large, dry pan on medium. Add the pecans and toast, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop the pecans. Reserve the pan.

Cook the chicken
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towel; season with ¾ of the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing it against the grain.

Make the maple-pecan garnish
In the reserved pan of fond, heat 2 tbsp butter on medium. Add the white bottoms of the scallions and sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the sherry vinegar and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until slightly reduced. Stir in the maple syrup and whole-grain mustard; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until combined. Off the heat, stir in the toasted pecans and green tops of the scallions.
