I agree that the meal would be complete without the chicken. To make it more interesting to me and boost protein, I would mash the sweet potatoes with maybe a little fresh pineapple in there (or a can of crushed pineapple), then add some black beans and curry powder to it, and still have the wild rice and broccoli too. Broccoli should be almost half the plate (broccoli in a substantial amount is a good source of calcium and protein as well as other nutrients), then the rice, beans, and sweet potato the other half. Wild rice has a fair amount of nutrition in it too, including protein, ditto with the sweet potato. The mix of potato, vegetable, rice, and bean if added would make this a very well rounded meal full of protein, fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium and a whole host of other nutrients. Chicken is way overrated.
