    1. Chicken, combine corn oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, spices and cilantro in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Add chicken cutlets and turn to coat. Marinate chicken for at least 15 minutes. (Chicken and marinade can be prepared ahead; covered and refrigerated overnight.)
    2. Preheat grill to medium heat or 350°F.
    3. Sweet potatoes, whisk together corn oil, lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl; add sweet potatoes and stir to coat. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir mixture, then microwave for 2 more minutes.
    4. Place chicken and sweet potato wedges onto grill. Cook the chicken for 2 to 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Grill the sweet potatoes for 1 to 2 minutes per side or just until grill marks appear then move to indirect heat while the chicken completes cooking. Serve immediately.

    I made this recipe for my family and overall they approved. However, be prepared that the chicken is hot spicy for most children. I think it would serve nicely with some yogurt on the side to cool down the chicken. The sweet potatoes were a nice surprise and a big hit with us as well as our kids.
