    Chef #1802801687's Note:

    Now summer is just round the corner, these orange and honey glazed sweet potato and chicken skewers are easy to rustle up and brighten any BBQ. Also delicious when cooked on a griddle pan, they’ll save the day when rain clouds start to gather. This dish created by celebrity chef and sweet potato lover Felice Tocchini is wonderfully versatile, as the chicken can be replaced with aubergines or mushrooms for vegetarian guests. The skewers can be part of a sweet potato feast when adding a handful of sweet potato chips as a crunchy side and a refreshing sweet potato, beetroot and fennel salad. Available all year round, sweet potatoes are just as tasty in the summer and are low in fat, high in fibre, and full of anti-oxidants, vitamin A, C and beta-carotene. The recipe uses two large sweet potatoes, which count towards one of the 5-a-day. The Love Sweet Potatoes campaign is designed to tell consumers about sweet potatoes and the different ways they can be used in everyday meals. The North Carolina farming family at Scott Farms is behind the campaign and has been growing sweet potatoes for over four generations. They are now the largest importer of sweet potatoes into the UK.
