I found this great recipe for a fajitas that consisted of sweet potatoes and chicken. However, using the ingredients I already had this new dish of sweet potato and turkey came about…
2 medium sweet potatoes- well scrubbed
4 tbs olive oil
1 medium onion
1 lb of turkey breast (or chicken) cut in 1/2 inch thick pieces
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
– Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork and microwave on high until almost tender when pierced with a knife. Probably about 3-4 minutes. Cool and cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch pieces.
– On a skillet, heat 2 tbs of oil and add peppers, onions and sweet potatoes until golden brown. Transfer mix to a bowl.
– Heat remaining oil and cook turkey and add all spices. Sauté until is browned. Return vegetables to skillet and add garlic and broth. Simmer until liquid is almost evaporated.
Serve as a dish on its own or use as filling for fajitas. Either way it was delicious and a complete meal. Enjoy!!!
