Make the sweet potato mash
- Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
In a medium sauce pot, add the sweet potatoes and enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and return to the pot. Add 2 to 3 teaspoons butter or oil (from your pantry). Using the back of a spoon or a masher, coarsely mash the potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm. While the sweet potatoes are simmering, start the chicken.
Prep and brown the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the onion and garlic.
Make the chraime sauce; finish the chicken
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chraime spice blend and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the tomatoes and 1 cup [1½ cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Nestle the chicken into the sauce and simmer until the sauce is thickened and the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the garnishes.
Prep the garnishes
- Cut the lemon into wedges.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
Transfer the sweet potato mash, chicken, and chraime sauce to individual plates. Garnish with the parsley and serve with the lemon wedges.
- Measure the onion.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Measure the water for the sauce.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Garnish with the parsley.
