Chicken and Sweet Potato Chili for Diabetics

Ingredients
1 to 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenders, cut into 3/4-inch chunks*
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) diced fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
1 can (16 ounces) no-salt-added kidney beans or pinto beans, drained
1/2 cup chipotle or jalapeño salsa

Directions
1 – Place sweet potatoes in large saucepan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until almost tender. Drain sweet potatoes; set aside. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 5 minutes.

2 – Add chicken, garlic, and chili powder; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes, beans, salsa, and sweet potatoes; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

*This is easier to do if chicken is partially frozen.

**Note: Sweet potatoes are the star of this chili and they’re nutritional superstars, too. One sweet potato provides about two and a half times the Recommended Daily Allowance for healthy adults of vitamin A, plus fiber, potassium and vitamin C.

Yield: 4 servings.

Serving size: 1 1/2 cups per serving.
