  • Ingredients for the Ground Chicken
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp water if necessary
  • Ingredients for the Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 lb sweet potatoes peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup bell peppers red, yellow, green
  • 1/4 cup green onions optional


  • Preheat two tablespoons of oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add the diced onions and cook until translucent. About 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the ground chicken and use a wooden spoon to break it into smaller pieces. Add cayenne pepper, paprika, thyme, salt, black pepper, and one tablespoon of water if necessary.
  • Cook for another 5 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Remove from the pan and set it aside.
  • Add two more tablespoons of oil to the same pan. Season the sweet potatoes with paprika, salt, and black pepper and add them to the skillet. Stir frequently, about every 2 minutes, until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. You can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil, if needed, to prevent the sweet potatoes from burning.
  • Stir in the bell pepper. Cook for another two minutes, then stir in the cooked ground chicken.
  • Sprinkle some green onions, parsley, or cilantro over it if desired, and serve hot.
