Cook Time30 mins
Total Time45 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (roughly 2 large chicken breasts; cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 cups sweet potato cubes (cut into 1-cm (1/2 inch) cubes; approximately 1 large or 2 smaller sweet potatoes)
  • 2 bell peppers (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
  • 1 red onion (1 small onion or 1/2 large onion; diced)
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 can black beans drained (540mL/18 oz)

To serve

  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • cilantro leaves
  • lime wedges
  • greek yogurt or sour cream
  • avocado
  • tortilla chips

Instructions

  • In a large skillet or pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, and cook until no longer pink in the middle (roughly 8-10 minutes).
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a clean plate.
  • Add the sweet potato, bell peppers, red onion, chili powder, cumin, salt, chicken stock and lime zest.
  • Cover and bring to a simmer. Simmer (covered) for 15-20 minutes, stirring 2-3 times, until sweet potatoes are soft and cooked through. If the pan becomes dry, add more chicken stock.
  • Add the black beans and cooked chicken breast, and cook 2 or so minutes until heated through.
  • Serve with suggested toppings.

Storage

  • Leftovers may be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 4 days.

Notes

Leftovers keep well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. I do not recommend freezing.
