2 - cups sliced yellow onions (2 large)
3 - bay leaves
4 - cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 - pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered

1/4 - teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 - tablespoons cold water

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.

For sauce, remove and discard bay leaves from onion mixture. In a medium saucepan stir together the cold water and cornstarch until smooth. Stir in onion mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Serve chicken with mashed sweet potatoes and sauce. Garnish with chives and black pepper.
