2. Meanwhile coat the chicken fillets in spices. Heat coconut oil in a fry pan. Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Season with salt, pepper and lime juice. Add spinach/kale to the pan and continue cooking until wilted.

3. Divide mixture between each hollowed out sweet potato. Return to the oven to heat through or serve as is with steamed greens.
