Pan fried chicken with sweet potato mash and gremolata

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 30-35

Serves 2

2 sweet potatoes (about 450g), peeled and cut into chunks
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
1 tbsp maple syrup
2½ tsp light soy sauce
380g chicken breast fillets
Finely grated zest 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¼ x 25g pack fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Place the sweet potato in a large saucepan, cover with plenty of water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain, then mash with three-quarters of the oil, plus the maple syrup and soy sauce.

Meanwhile, place the remaining oil in a heavy ovenproof frying pan over a high heat. Season the chicken and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Put the pan in the oven for 20-25 minutes until thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat. Remove, cover with parchment paper and rest for 4-5 minutes.

Mix the lemon zest, garlic and parsley together. Spoon the mash onto plates, top with the chicken, then scatter over the parsley mixture. Drizzle over a little more olive oil, if using.
