Chicken Bowl

Chicken Bowl - Great recipe from Alicia H.  Keep those recipes coming!!
  • ½ sweet potato
  • 1 chicken thigh, excess fat removed
  • 2 slices of bacon
  • baby spinach
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Cook whole sweet potatoe in microwave (4-8 min depending on watts).
  2. Add your two slices of bacon to frying pan.
  3. Salt and pepper both sides of your chicken thigh.
  4. As soon as some of the fat begins to render in your pan, push the bacon to one side and place your chicken thigh into the bacon fat.
  5. Cook chicken and bacon on one side for about 4-5 minutes, then flip.
  6. Your bacon will cook a bit faster, so once it is done, place your sweet potato in a bowl and top it with bacon.
  7. To finish the chicken thigh through, add a tablespoon of water and cover for about 3-5 minutes or until cooked through. Do what I do, check before you much.
  8. In the last minute or so, add a handful of baby spinach leaves
  9. Add chicken thigh to your bowl.
  10. Last but not least, grab a fork and knife and cut it all up. Mix it all together.
  11. Top with a pinch of salt and pepper.

I (personally) scoop my sweet potato out of the skin before putting it in the bowl.  I love this recipe because I can make it for myself for a quick meal but it would  be easy to quadruple and make for the family.  The picture (and original recipe) doesn't include cooked spinach.  I added it to get my greens in and thought it was delicious.
