Chicken & Sweet Potato Bake


Boneless, skinless chicken thighs were on sale last week, so I bought them and threw them in the freezer.  Then I started looking for a recipe base of what I wanted to do with them.  I love to think of flavors that sound good to me then just Googling "chicken, sweet potato, casserole".   Almost every casserole recipe I come across has a sauce with flour to thicken it or the icky cream of whatever soups.  I really don't find all that stuff necessary if you use fattier meats and good fats like coconut oil and butter. 

This really doesn't look very pretty, but its extremely tasty.
