RECIPE | Soy & Garlic Chicken with Sweet Potato Chips
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.
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.

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.
“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.
It’s a fun filled day out for the whole family. There are stacks of outdoor play areas, which the kids cannot get bored of, but also some really good indoor/sheltered activities that means even on your typical autumnal Yorkshire day you can have a really good day out.
Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
