Pan-fried Chicken Breast with Sweet Potato Mash & Mushroom and Onion Sauce


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm pieces

1 tablespoon cooking oil

4 chicken breasts

salt & pepper

8 Swiss brown mushrooms, sliced

2 garlic cloves, sliced

6 sprigs thyme

3 tablespoons cream

3 tablespoons Beerenberg Caramelised Onion 

1 cup steamed peas


Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Place the sweet potato on a baking tray, cover with foil and place in the oven for approximately 30 minutes.

Whilst the sweet potato is cooking, heat a large frypan on medium heat and add the oil, chicken breasts and a good pinch of salt and pepper.  Cook for 3 minutes on either side or until golden brown.  Transfer the chicken onto a baking tray, and into the oven for 15 -18 minutes, or until cooked through.

In the frypan that the chicken was cooked, add the mushrooms, garlic and thyme sprigs. Place on a medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and add the cream, Beerenberg Caramelised Onion and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes before discarding the thyme sprigs and removing from the heat.  Once the sweet potato is soft, transfer the pieces into a bowl, and mash with a fork until smooth.

To serve, divide the sweet potato mash between four plates, top with the chicken breast, peas, and mushroom and onion sauce.
