Chicken Sweet Potatoes and Rice

Sweet Potatoes are a wonderful addition to a dish they add color, nutrition and a natural sweetness to your dish. I loved what they added to this chicken dish. I think the sweet potatoes were my favorite part of the dish.


2 T olive oil
2 garlic cloves minced
1 onion chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
1/4 C chia
3 cooked chicken breast chopped
2 sweet potatoes cooked
3 C brown rice
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


1. Heat up skillet on medium heat and add the oil. Stir in garlic and onion. Let cook together about 3-4 minutes until the onions start to soften.
2. Stir in the peppers and chia and let all of them cook together for about 3-4 minutes.
3. Toss in the chicken, sweet potatoes, brown rice, thyme, salt, and pepper. Let all of it cook together on medium low with the lid on. Stir a couple times. Let the flavors meld together for about 10 minutes. Don't over stir. It will get mushy. If you need to add a 1/4 cup of water if it needs more moisture.
4. Serve while it is warm.
