Ingredients:
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Wrap sweet potato in tinfoil and place it on a sheet pan (sometimes it drips) and roast it whole for 1 hour. (this can be done up to 4 days in advance)
  2. Prepare a large bowl and place bread crumbs and coconut milk together and mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients except the oil (including the sweet potato without its skin) and mix well.
  3. Using the palms of your hands, form into mini burgers. Prepare a skillet on high heat. Add the coconut oil (in batches) and add as many corn fritters as will fit the pan without overcrowding. Fry for three minutes per side.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

These fritters are so good the next day, room temperature! And this chicken reheats beautifully! But if you want something different and don’t have much leftover, turn the chicken into a pasta salad.  Pull apart the leftover chicken from the bone and add it and its sauce to some pasta with extra olive oil and salt. Be sure to finish it with fresh basil!
