Short and sweet today as I am absolutely exhausted from moving all weekend. Good news is that my husband only has a few boxes left to sort on Monday, but other than that everything is ready for running the store come Monday.
Harissa chicken & sweet potato with baby spinach & tzatziki
adapted from Donna Hay No Time To Cook
4 chicken thighs, de-boned
1 sweet potato, sliced to around 3mm thick
2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
3tbs harissa paste
3tbs olive oil
2 tsp sea salt
Combine chicken thighs with 1tbs harissa paste, 1tbs olive oil and 1tsp salt.
Combine sweet potato with 2tbs harissa, 2tbs olive oil and 1tsp salt
Heat grill and grill chicken 15mins or until cooked through and sweet potato around 4mins per side or until semi-soft.
Scatter spinach leaves unto plate and top with chicken and sweet potato, serve with a dollop of tzatziki.
ease: 5/5. prep time: 5mins.
cooking time: 15mins.
taste: 4.5/5. Great flavour for a super easy and quick meal. The slightly wilted spinach leaves give way to sweet but spicy sweet potato and succulent chicken, the heat is then soothed by the tangy, creamy tzatiki. The simple, clean flavours go together beautifully in this healthy dinner.
would I make it again: Yes.
