tips & techniques
Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place in a large bowl. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly coat. Transfer to a sheet pan and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the lime mayo

Meanwhile, thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (or use the small side of a box grater). Quarter the lime. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime zest, and the juice of 1 lime wedge. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the chicken & pepper
3 Cook the chicken & pepper

Once the sweet potatoes have roasted about 20 minutes, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and sliced pepper in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the pepper is softened and the chicken is browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat; stir in the juice of 1 lime wedge. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
