Serves: 2

Time: 30 minutes

Level: Easy


Tools:

  • chopping board
  • knife
  • frying pan
  • mixing bowl
  • saucepan
  • blender (optional)

Ingredients:


Sweet potato mash:


Paprika chicken:
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts 
  • 1 ½ tsp of paprika
  • 1tsp of cumin
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • One garlic clove minced

Herb salsa:
  • Small handful of cherry tomatoes halved and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of chimichurri 
  • Handful of parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Handful of coriander, finely chopped
  • Juice of ½ a lemon

Method:

  1. Optional step for extra tender chicken: Place your chicken breast between 2 pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin or mallet to thin out.
  2. Place your chicken breast, spices, salt, garlic  and pepper,  1 tbsp of olive oil in a mixing bowl and combine. Set aside.
  3. Boil your cubed sweet potato and 2 whole garlic cloves in a saucepan of salted water for 10 minutes until soft. Once cooked, drain and leave to steam dry for a few minutes.
  4. Whilst the potato is cooking make the salsa. Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir well until you have a loose yet chunky consistency. Add more oil or lemon juice if necessary.
  5. Heat a pan over medium high heat with a good glug of olive oil. Once hot and in your marinated chicken breast. Fry for around 4 minutes each side until golden. Once cooked, transfer to a chopping board and cut into thin slices.
  6. Meanwhile, add your sweet potato, cooked garlic cloves, splash of milk, 1 tbsp of oil to a blender and blend into a smooth consistency (can do this by hand with a potato masher). Season to taste and set aside.
  7. Serve your sliced chicken over your sweet potato mash and drizzle with herb salsa!

Tip: If you are feeling extra lazy, replace the herb salsa with a drizzle of chimilove chimichurri.
