This is kind of an odd combination, but I got this idea from two sources. One was from a protein bar called a pumpkin supreme, which has sweet potato, pumpkin, almond butter and chocolate in it. The other is from Thanksgiving where I would end up putting mashed sweet potato, on Turkey to add flavor. This is a very unrefined recipe so I ended up with a ton of extra mash/sauce which will probably be used in the future with chocolate chips and or marshmallows. The color of the sauce is kind of gross though.
- 1/2 cup pumpkin from can
- 5 peeled sweet potatoes
- 4 cups water
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp pumpkin pie seasoning
- 3 lbs of chicken breast and thighs (boneless cooks faster, but more expensive)
- Coconut oil
- Cut up sweet potatoes into 1 inch thick sections along the length of potato.
- Boil potatoes for 25 minutes
- Drain potatoes and add them to food processor. You might have to do in 3 parts depending on the size and power of your processor. Its a lot of mash.
- Add mash potatoes, pumpkin, all seasoning and water to the pan.
- Mix everything together and simmer.
- Do not try to cook at too high of heat, or your will get the sauce to shoot all over the place. Its like a volcano for some reason.
- Fry up your chicken 5-10 minutes per side in coconut oil, or basically until your have a nice burn on both sides. Chicken with bones might take even longer since bones take longer to cook.
- Lower temperature of chicken to simmer and completely cover with sauce.
- Remove and serve when ready.
