  • Spanish Sweet Potato Rice Ingredients
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 green pepper, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Honey-lime marinated chicken (recipe follows)
  • Fried or poached egg, optional
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • 1 2-lb. package chicken breasts (not thin)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Spanish Sweet Potato Rice Instructions
  1. Cut off each end of the sweet potatoes so they are flat on each side, and spiralize using the 3MM noodle blade or use a Julienne peeler.
  2. Working in batches, pulse the sweet potato noodles in the food processor or until they resemble the texture of rice. You should have a scant 3 cups of sweet potato rice.
  3. Pepper and bring to a boil. Cover the pan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  4. Uncover and cook over high heat until all the liquid is absorbed and the sweet potato is tender, about another 5 minutes.
  5. Place a portion of sweet potato rice on a plate and top with a fried egg (optional).
  6. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with honey-lime marinated chicken.
Instructions for Honey Lime Chicken
  1. Add all the ingredients to a Ziploc bag and marinate for a few hours.
  2. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discard the marinade)
  3. Grill or broil on high for approximately 6 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
VARIATION: Try using plantain or butternut squash rice instead of sweet potatoes. If you eat kitniyot on Passover, feel free to add a can of rinsed and drained black beans and/or corn.

I hope you enjoy this Spanish Sweet Potato Rice with Honey Lime Chicken Recipe for Passover…or any day!
