Calories: About 450

Ingredients Needed:

  • 3 oz. Lean Ground Chicken Burger (I usually make my own by purchasing lean ground chicken meat and sectioning / seasoning and freezing them myself.)
  • Seasonings for your Chicken
  • 1 medium Sweet Potato

  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Lemon juice
  • Cumin
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Vanilla Extract

Directions:

  • Peel and cube 1 medium sweet potato
  • Place cubed sweet potato in boiling water and let sit for about 10-15 minutes (keep checking.. as soon as you can poke a fork in them, they’re good!)
  • Drain sweet potatoes when they’re soft – Set Aside
  • Thaw frozen spinach in a pan on the stovetop
  • Once thawed, drain MOST of the water (not all) and sprinkle with lemon juice and red pepper flakes (to your taste) and let cook.
  • Heat a pan and line with coconut oil
  • Place chicken burger in the pan and cook thoroughly
  • While chicken burger is cooking, it’s time to mash the sweet potatoes.
  • Place the sweet potato cubes in a pot and drizzle with coconut oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and cumin and a TINY BIT of vanilla extract and mash completely.
  • Heat the mashed potatoes up for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly
  • Place all ingredients on a plate and serve … and ENJOY !

Happily & Healthily Yours,
