Prepare the Ingredients
Spray grill with cooking spray and heat grill to medium. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry.
Place sweet potatoes, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt in provided grill bag. Roll open end of bag to seal and gently shake to mix.
Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions.
Grill the Meal
Place grill bag on hot grill and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, 5-6 minutes per side.
While grill bag cooks, place corn on hot grill and turn occasionally until charred in places and tender, 5-6 minutes.
While corn and grill bag cook, place chicken on hot grill and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-6 minutes per side.

For a Rainy Day
If cooking indoors, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray. Place sweet potatoes, 2 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt on prepared baking sheet and toss to coat. Spread into a single layer on one side. Add corn to empty side and drizzle with 2 tsp. olive oil. Roast in hot oven until tender, 18-20 minutes, flipping halfway through. While vegetables roast, pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Follow same instructions as grilling for plating.
