Roast the sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise; slice crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. On a lined sheet pan, toss the sweet potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, 14 to 18 minutes, turning over once, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Set aside to cool.

Cook the chicken
While the sweet potatoes roast, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with all but a pinch 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. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.

Rehydrate the cranberries
Peel, halve and mince the shallots. To the pan of fond, add the shallots and cook, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the cranberries, ⅓ of the vinegar and 2 tbsp of water; season with the remaining pinch of spice blend and S&P. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 1 to 2 minutes, until the cranberries have absorbed almost all of the liquid. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

Make the salad
In a large bowl, combine the remaining vinegar and 6 tbsp of olive oil; season with S&P. Add the spinach, cabbage and roasted sweet potatoes; toss to coat the vegetables thoroughly with the vinaigrette.
