"From Canadian Living magazine. Sounds like pure comfort food!"
( about 1 lb/500 g)
boneless skinless chicken thighs
( or 4 breasts if you prefer)
sweet green pepper, coarsely chopped
garlic cloves, minced
minced fresh parsley
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.
