Recipe: Sticky Soy Chicken with Sweet Potato Mash

I cleared the co-op out of sweet potatoes with this recipe, lol! I love them you know, the flavour's fab, and whenever I eat them it ends up making me feel so healthy and full of energy. Bit of a cheats recipe this one- but it's a very good midweek meal. You can also peel/chop up the sweet potato, and marinade the chicken the night before- so all you have to do when you get in the next day is chuck the chicken in the oven, and boil the potatoes.

Sticky Soy Chicken with Sweet Potato Mash (serves 4)

4 large chicken breasts (or 8 small ones!)
1 x 180g Amoy Sticky Glaze Chinese Barbeque
100ml cider
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp fresh minced ginger
1 tsp lee kum kee light soy sauce
1 tbsp lee kum kee char siu sauce
¼ tsp hot chilli powder
Plenty of black pepper

2kg sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
Soy sauce and black pepper to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Mix together the glaze, cider, oil, ginger, soy sauce, chilli powder and seasoning in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts, coat in the mixture, and marinade in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
2. Put the chicken and the marinade in an oven dish and cook in the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the sweet potatoes until soft. Drain and mash the sweet potato, seasoning to taste with the soy sauce and black pepper to taste.
3. Remove the chicken from the oven, and serve with the sweet potato mash, with the sweet sticky sauce spooned on top!
