Instructions Checklist
  • Coat an extra-large skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, half at a time, in hot skillet until brown. Set aside.

  • In a 4-quart slow cooker combine onions, bay leaves, and garlic. Add sweet potatoes. Top with chicken. In a medium bowl combine coconut milk, soy sauce, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture over chicken.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 6 1/2 hours or on high-heat setting about 3 hours or until chicken and sweet potatoes are tender.

  • To serve, remove chicken with a slotted spoon; cover and keep warm. Transfer sweet potatoes to a medium bowl; mash slightly with a potato masher. Cover and keep warm.
