Ingredients

Serves: 2 people

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 - Chicken Breast
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 pinch Paprika
  • 1 - Red Chilli
    deseeded and chopped
  • 1 small Red Onion
    finely diced
  • 1 - Red Pepper
    chopped
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 50 g SuperValu Feta Cheese

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Paprika

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.

2. Place the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Brush with the olive oil and scatter over the chilli, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through. When it’s cool enough to handle, cut into bite-sized pieces.

3. Meanwhile, steam the sweet potatoes for about 15 minutes, until tender. Remove the potatoes from the steamer and let them cool down to room temperature, then cut into bite-sized pieces.

4. Whisk all the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper (or any other spices that you like).

5. Place the chicken, sweet potato, onion, red pepper and feta in a large bowl and drizzle the dressing on top. Gently mix everything together using a large wooden spoon. Serve warm or cold.

Tip: To cool the sweet potatoes faster, just stick them in the fridge or freezer for 15 minutes.
