Lime in the Coconut....on some Chicken!

This was so good my man and I ate it all.....and made a second batch right then and there...and ate it all again!!!

You put the lime in the coconut and shake em both up.... just kidding  ^_^  What I love about this is how the chicken and sweet potato flavors are so completely different, yet Perfectly complement each other.

Chicken breast, chopped into bite size pieces
Flaked coconut, unsweetened
Juice of 1/4 lime
Coconut milk, 2 oz.
Sweet potato
Cinnamon powder
Cayenne pepper

Toss the chicken bites in a hot skillet until almost cooked through, then add the coconut flakes until they are brown and toasty and you start to get that fabulous coconut aroma. 
Add the coconut milk and squeeze in the lime juice and simmer on low until the sauce thickens.

Cook up the sweet potato however is your fancy. Truthfully...it's about the only thing I use the microwave for. Potato in, 6 minutes, done. The skin comes off easily and they're perfectly tender without added water or oil. Chop into bite sizes.
Put potato bites into a bowl and toss with equal parts cinnamon and cayenne - about 1/4 tsp each per serving. 
Spoon the chicken and some sauce into the bowl and viola! 

A taste of the islands with just a hint of kick and warmth. SO GOOD.
