Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 sweet green pepper coarsely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Method

Peel sweet potatoes. Cut potatoes and chicken into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. Set sweet potatoes aside. In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Drain fat from pan; heat remaining oil over medium heat. Fry onion, green pepper, garlic, ginger, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper, stirring often, until onion is softened, 4 minutes.

Add sweet potatoes and chicken stock; bring to boil. Return chicken and any juices to pan; cover and simmer until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Uncover and cook over high heat until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
