Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 55 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 4 large sweet potatoes washed then poked with a fork
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs chopped; *Partially frozen chicken is easier to chop.
  • 1 large leek chopped (white and light green parts only)
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wrap each sweet potato with aluminum foil and place in the oven; bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until fork-tender. Remove from the oven; allow them to cool then cut each in half lengthwise.
  • Spoon out all of the sweet potato “flesh” from the skins into a bowl then place the skins on a plate; set aside.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients (chopped chicken through salt and pepper). Cook and stir for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • To the sweet potato mixture, carefully blend in the chicken mixture; spoon mixture into the potato skin halves; serve.
