  • 2 (8oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 bunch of kale, chopped
  • 4 mini peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • ½ medium red onion, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ courgette, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons peanut sauce

Method of preparation:

Season the chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper on both sides.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken until it is no longer pink in the centre and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the centre should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Remove the chicken from the pan, allow to cool and then cut into bite-sized pieces.

Meanwhile, pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until fork tender. Be careful not to overcook. Remove and leave to cool, then cut into bite-sized pieces.

Heat the sesame oil in a wok, Dutch oven or heavy skillet over medium heat.

Add the kale, season with salt and pepper and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the sweet potato, bell pepper, onion, courgette and garlic. Stir fry for 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the chicken and peanut sauce. Stir to combine well. Cook and stir for a further 3 minutes.
