Step 1

In a large skillet or pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken, and brown (approximately 6 minutes). Don't worry about cooking it right through.

Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a plate.

Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Add the sweet potato, and cook for 10-12 minutes, until browned. I found it browned better when I didn't stir it too frequently, only every 2-3 minutes.

Add the bell peppers, red onion, chili powder, cumin, salt and chicken stock. Return the chicken to the pan. Stir so that everything is well combined.

Cover and cook for another 10 or so minutes, stirring once or twice. Chicken and sweet potato should be cooked through.

Add the black beans and lime zest, and cook until heated through.

Taste for salt, and add more if needed.

Serve immediately
