Chicken and Sweet Potato Mash

Another Whole30 recipe. I made this one the other night, enough to have leftovers for another meal. I make enough leftovers of most things for at least one meal, so that I am not doing as much cooking on work days. I do most cooking on my days off. It just makes my days go easier.

This was a simple recipe to create.

Ingredients

1 carrot, rinsed and cut into small pieces

1 large sweet potato, rinsed and skin left on

chicken broth

shredded leftover chicken, as much as you want

sesame oil

  1. Put a little sesame oil into a skillet and warm on medium heat.
  2. Place the pieces of carrot in the pan and cook while the potato is ‘baking’.
  3. Place the sweet potato onto a plate and put into the microwave. Cook for about 6 minutes.
  4. Remove the potato and plate from the microwave. Cut the potato into pieces, skin and all. BE CAREFUL: The potato is very hot.
  5. Add the potato and chicken to the skillet.
  6. Pour a little broth over the mixture in the pan. You may have to do this every so often.
  7. Cook until the potatoes and carrots are mashable.
  8. Mash everything together.

Tips

  • When reheating, add a little coconut milk and mix up. Not much is needed.
  • Grow your own produce to save money.
  • Using leftover chicken also saves you money. However, canned chicken can be used, liquid and all. You wont need as much broth if you use this product.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with carrot, celery, and cucumber sticks, and a lemon rosemary dipping oil.

Enjoy!

Shannon
