Easy Meals #1 - Sweet and Spicy Chicken Dish

Me and Alex have been making a lot of meals up as we go along recently and they are starting to turn out really well so we thought why not share them for you to try!

Not including spices/seasoning this meal cost us around £8 for two people and it was really filling and tasty.

Estimated cooking time: 35-40 minutes


- Chicken Fillets 
- Baby Spinach 
- Baby Sweet Peppers 
- Goats Cheese 
- Soft Goats Cheese (optional)
- Small Red Onions 
- Sweet Potato 
- Lazy Garlic
- Hot Peri Peri Sauce (but you can use any chilli sauce you like really!)
- Thyme
- Honey
- Cinnamon

Remember these are just guidelines so if you like lots of something put more of it in!


1.  Get everything prepared! Pop the oven on so it can start heating up. Then chop up your red onions (I did 2 baby sized ones), scoop out the seeds from your baby peppers (I used half a bag) and chop your sweet potato (I used 1 and sliced it into O shapes then chopped them in half to create the chunky wedge shapes).

2.  Stuff your baby peppers with some spinach and a chunk of goats cheese and put them to the side for later. 

3.  Lets get the first things on the baking tray - put a thin layer of oil on the tray (I normally pore a small amount on then rub it over all the tray) then spread your chopped onions on the tray along with your chopped sweet potato and season your sweet potato with some cinnamon, garlic and honey. Then pop your chicken fillets on the tray and season with some thyme, garlic, hot peri peri sauce and a little honey. 

4.  Put this in the oven for around 20 minutes, depending on how thick you've cut your potato it may take a little longer. 

5.  Check on your chicken and sweet potato (stab the potato to see how hard it is and cut open the chicken to see how pink it is) then put your stuffed baby peppers on the tray and put it all back in the open for 10-15 minutes.

6.  Almost there! Now check on your potatoes and chicken again and if everything is looking done now is the time to spread some spinach on top of everything on the tray (a little or a lot depending on how much you love spinach) and back in the oven it goes for about 5 minutes.

7.  Now you can take everything out and sit it down to rest for a minute. I put some soft goats cheese on my chicken but that's not a must (I just love goats cheese!). And you're done!

Hope you enjoy and look forward to hearing what you think!
