Spicy Chicken Pittas & Sweet Potato Mash


My husband and my brother-in-law made this really delicious and healthy meal. My brother-in-law loves to experiment with food and his cooking and presentation skills are amazing. This was supposed to be a boys night meal. Not bad. Beats the usual take-away’s that guys are prone to ordering when they get together!


4 chicken fillets

900g sweet potato (peeled and quartered)

6 tbsp milk

110g butter (cubed)

1 tbsp olive Oil

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp ground fennel

1/2 tsp ground coriander

2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 tbsp grated ginger

Salt and pepper

Salad leaves

4 pitta breads


Marinating and cooking the chicken fillets:

1. Cut the chicken fillets into strips.

2. Mix olive oil, turmeric, paprika, ground fennel, ground coriander, grated ginger, minced garlic, salt and pepper in bowl and add chicken.

3. Cover bowl in clingfilm and leave to chill in the fridge for a few hours (the longer the better)!

4. When ready to eat, heat pan and cook chicken until cooked through and golden brown.

5. Heat pitta breads on the pan, split and fill.

Mash Potato:

1. Peel and quarter the sweet potato and put in pan filled with water and boil for 20 minutes.
