I adapted this recipe from Donna Hay's Flavours Cookbook. In HER recipe she used normal potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. But I prefered it with the sweet potatoes. A very delicious and simple recipe. Quick whip up.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 1⁄4 cup fresh oregano
- 12 cloves garlic, unpeeled
- sea salt
- cracked pepper
- 4 chicken breast fillets, skin on
- oil, for brushing
