Prep Instructions

  • Boil a pot of water large enough for the green beans.

Sweet Potatoes

  • Microwave the sweet potatoes on the baked potato setting.
  • Finish chopping the salsa if you haven't.

Boiling the Green Beans

  • When water is at a rapid boil, add green beans & boil 4-5 mins. Immediately drain and rinse thoroughly in cold water.

Cooking the Chicken

  • Heat the skillet on a medium heat. Mix the spices together in a small bowl, then heavily season the chicken.
  • Add the butter and oil to the skillet (butter for flavor and oil so butter doesn't burn). Lay the chicken in the skillet and cook about 4 minutes each side, or until the sides are white. Remove chicken from skillet and set on a plate to rest.

Finishing the Green Beans

  • Return the skillet to the heat and add the green beans to the hot skillet. Cook 2-3 mins, stirring each minute. Sprinkle w/ salt.

Assembling the Plate

  • Place potatoes on serving plates and cut them open. Add butter & sprinkle w/ salt. 
  • Cut the chicken into cubes or shred it and place inside the potato. Top w/ salsa.
  • Drizzle 1 Tbsp of honey over all if you can spare those carbs (they're already included in the count). Squeeze lime over chicken.
