Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes or 4 small ones, halved.
  • 3 chicken thighs, sliced into strips.
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika.
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin.
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil.
  • sea salt and black pepper.
  • juice of lime.
  • 4 cups baby spinach or kale, stalks removed, roughly chopped.
  • 4 cups steamed greens, to serve.

Directions

1. Preheat the oven the 220 degrees celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Prick the centre of potatoes and place them on a baking tray. Cook in the oven for 1 hour or until the skin has collapsed and the potato is soft. Scoop out some of the flesh from the centre of the potato (reserve for mash).

2. Meanwhile coat the chicken thighs in spices. Heat coconut oil in a fry pan. Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Add spinach/kale to the pan and continue cooking until wilted.

3. Divide mixture between each hollowed out sweet potato. Return to the oven to heat through or serve as is with steamed greens.
