Chicken is a delicate dish to make. It can dry out very fast if it’s not properly prepared, and a few minutes too long on the heat can take the bird from tender and juicy to dry and dull.

This week, Nyama Mama’s Chef Les will be making an oven grilled chicken, sautè sweet potatoes and avocado salad. A recipe you’d want to try out.

Sweet potatoes are an affordable and nutritious accompaniment to pair with the oven-grilled chicken. In fact, in this recipe, Chef Les will show us how possible it is to throw the chicken and sweet potatoes in one pot, in this case, one oven tray.
