In this recipe
Preparation time:
10 mins
Cooking time:
30 mins
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt & pepper
  • 8 Swiss brown mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 3 tablespoons cream
  • 3 tablespoons Beerenberg Caramelized Onion
  • 1 cup steamed peas

Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Place the sweet potato on a baking tray, cover with foil and place in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Whilst the sweet potato is cooking, heat a large frypan on medium heat and add the oil, chicken breasts and a good pinch of salt and pepper.  Cook for 3 minutes on either side or until golden brown.  Transfer the chicken onto a baking tray, and into the oven for 15 -18 minutes, or until cooked through.

In the frypan that the chicken was cooked, add the mushrooms, garlic and thyme sprigs. Place on a medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and add the cream, Beerenberg Caramelised Onion and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes before discarding the thyme sprigs and removing from the heat.  Once the sweet potato is soft, transfer the pieces into a bowl, and mash with a fork until smooth.

To serve, divide the sweet potato mash between four plates, top with the chicken breast, peas, and mushroom and onion sauce.
