Smoky Chicken & Sweet Potato

Description: Smoky chicken & sweet potato

Serves 4

·         4 medium sweet potatoes

·         4 chicken breasts, preferably organic

·         Juice of 1 lemon

·         2tsp olive oil

·         2tsp smoked paprika

For the relish

·         2 shallots, finely diced

·         1 clove garlic, crushed

·         227g tin chopped tomatoes

·         180g sweet corn

·         ¼ tsp dried chilli

·         ½ tsp smoked paprika

  1. Baking sweet potatoes on the barbecue couldn’t be easier. Just prick the skins with a fork and wrap them individually in foil. Then pop them on the barbecue for 40 to 50 minutes for a medium potato.
  2. For the marinade, combine the lemon juice, olive oil and paprika. Cut each chicken breast through horizontally and marinate in a nonmetal dish for at least 30 minutes. (Organic chicken is recommended because this certification ensures the highest health and welfare standards.)
  3. While the chicken is marinating make the relish. In a saucepan, beat 1tbsp water and cook the shallots with the lid on for 3 or 4 minutes until softened, add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Finally, add the tomatoes, sweetcorn and spices and simmer gently for 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Season to taste and put to one side.
  4. Cook the chicken on a medium hot barbecue for 4 or 5 minutes on each side, depending on size, and check it’s cooked through. There should be no pink flesh and the juices should run clear if you pierce it with a knife.
  5. To check the sweet potatoes are cooked, carefully open the foil and cut one open to make sure it’s soft all the way through. It will be steaming so take care. Serve the chicken and potato with a green salad and a good dollop of sweet corn relish on the side.
