Method -

  1. First start by marinating the chicken. Ideally do this a minimum of 2 hours before cooking. To a large bowl add your herbs, honey, chilli, paprika, olive oil, onion, salt & pepper. Give the marinade a little whisk then pour over the chicken breasts, cover with cling film & refrigerate. 
  2. Onto the mango salsa. Simply mix together your avo's, toms, cubed mango, parsley & the juice of 1 lime. Drizzle with olive oil & add salt & pepper. Pop in the fridge until your chicken & sweet potato is ready.
  3. Back to the chicken. Remove the chicken from the marinade (keep the marinade as we will need it for the next step). Over a medium high heat fry the chicken breasts & onions for 2mins on each side. This is only to lock in the delicious flavours, the chicken will continue cooking in the oven.
  4. Next, remove the chicken breast placing them on a baking tray. Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken & bake for 15 mins or until cooked through. (180C)
  5. Once cooked serve alongside roasted sweet potato & your yummy mango salsa! Enjoy!
