RECIPE | Soy & Garlic Chicken with Sweet Potato Chips

20th August 2019

This recipe came about when I raided the cupboard a year or so ago and realised I didn’t have much in! What I did have was garlic, fresh chillies, soy sauce and chicken. 

It’s a delicious meal that even my kids love (if I don’t put too many chilies in). Takes about 5 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook.

Soy and Garlic Chicken

 

What you need (to feed 2 x adults)

2 skinned and chopped chicken breasts

2 x garlic cloves, finely chopped

Fresh finely chopped chillies (I use 2 or 3 red chillies, but I like it quite spicy)

Extra virgin olive oil

Dark soy sauce

1 x large sweet potato

 

Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees.

In a medium sized dish, put a decent glug of olive oil and an equivalent glug of the soy sauce. Mix together and add in your chopped chicken breasts. You should have enough of the oil and soy to almost cover your chicken.

Add in your garlic and fresh chillies and stir and put to one side.

Wash and pat dry your sweet potato (no need to peel) and slice into chips approx 1cm in width. Tip: Try to keep your chips all roughly the same size so they cook at the same rate.

Heat a few glugs of olive oil in a baking tray and add your sweet potato chips. Stir around to ensure all your chips are covered in oil and season well with salt and pepper and put in the oven. Check and turn your chips over after around 10 minutes. Remove from the oven after around 20 minutes or when cooked through.

Whilst your chips are cooking, heat a large frying pan and add in your chicken, chillies, garlic and oil. Cook for 15-20 minutes of until the chicken is thoroughly cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the oil and serve with your sweet potato chips. Use a few spoonfuls of the oil, soy, garlic and chill from the pan to drizzle over your chicken and sweet potato chips. I usually also serve with either a salad or green veg, like broccoli or green beans, so use the delicious oil to drizzle over as a salad dressing and garnish for your vegetables.

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

RECOMMENDATION | Exquisite Fine Dining in York – The Bow Room at Grays Court

Before I move onto the impeccable five-course tasting menu, it’s only fair to mention that Grays Court is the only hotel in York with private access to the city’s mediaeval city walls and the view of the Minster from some of the hotel’s well-appointed rooms is incredible. There’re only 12 rooms making this little piece of 12th century Jacobean real-estate more like a rather large and rather plush family home than a hotel.

Food trucks offering an epic selection of food flavours from across the world hosted under the iconic railway arches of Glasgow Central station. This place ticks all my boxes – kid-friendly, dogs welcome, great food selection, beer to keep the hubby happy (including a microbrewery within), play area to burn off some toddler energy – but not compromising on style, decent wine if required or cool location.
