Marinade: Add the chicken to a bowl with the garlic, lemon juice and parsley. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.

Sweet Potato Fries: While the chicken is marinating, preheat oven to 425 degrees and lightly grease a baking tray or sheet. Place sweet potato fries in a bowl. Next, add melted butter, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Pour over the fries, mixing well to combine. Place the fries in a single layer on the baking tray (or sheet) and place in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes or until browned, turning over at the 15 minute mark.

Chicken: When you have turned over the fries, pre-heat a small fry pan on medium high heat, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and cook chicken until golden brown.
