Surviving the elimination diet: apricot chicken, sweet potatoes and asparagus

We have found little in the way of recipes for a allergen elimination diet.  After a few days, we are desperate to start eating well.  The one saving grace is bacon!  It is the only fat allowed.

2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 T. bacon fat
1 T. pure maple syrup
1/2 t. salt

Stir together ingredients in a large baking pan.  Bake in 400 degree oven for 30-40 min until desired tenderness.

Apricot/peach compote:

1 fresh or frozen peach, sliced
1/4 c. dried peaches
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup water
1 T. white vinegar
1 t. sugar
1 pinch salt

Cook over medium heat until fruit is soft and tender and juice has reduced to syrup.  Chop if desired.

2 chicken breasts
1 T. bacon grease
pinch salt

Cook chicken in bacon grease until done.  Top with compote.

Asparagus, whole
1 T. bacon grease
1/4 c. water
pinch salt

Heat grease in pan to medium-hot.  Add asparagus  and toss for 5 minutes.  Add water and cover then steam for five minutes until water is gone.
