Jerk Chicken stuffed Sweet Potato
I love Sweet Potatoes and Yams and I love Jerk chicken. I love spicy food. I had something like this at a restaurant and loved it so I created it at home. The mango, mandarin orange salsa provides some extra sweetness to balance out the spiciness of the Chicken and the sweet potato rounds it all out.
dash of cinnamon
6 green onions sliced
3-4 garlic cloves minced,
1 inch chunk of ginger grated
3T. brown sugar or 2 T. agave nectar
3 jalapenos or hot chilies like scotch bonnet if u can find cut up.
1T. soy suce
1 lime juiced
1 bay leaf
Puree all in blender and put over:
6 Chicken breast in a pressure cooker with 1/4c. water
Pressure cook about 12-15 minutes.
Bake sweet potatoes in oven or microwave until tender
1 mango diced
1 can mandarin oranges chppd
1/4c. chopped cilantro
3T. red onion
1 T. lime juice

Put shredded chicken on top of cut open sweet potato. put some of pan drippings on sweet potato too. Top that with fruit salsa and enjoy. I did three days in a row for lunches. My kids liked it too which I was a little surprised about.
