Chicken, spinach, sweet potato

Chicken, Spinach and Sweet Potato Redux

I don’t know what it is about chicken breasts but lately I have become a huge fan of them and had to create yet another recipe including them.

It all happened when I was reading the September 2017 issue of Men’s Health Magazine (South African) edition.

There are so many recipes to choose from in that particular article but I chose to play it safe and went for the spinach, sweet potato and of course…. The infamous chicken breasts.

Like any other recipe found on this website, it is simple, healthy and can be done in less than one hour.

If you have been following the low carb, high protein guideline, this is a treat for you and if you are all about low calories, this recipe should also suit you just fine.

For all the gym goers out there who need a great post workout meal, this should also help with muscle recovery and muscle growth. The nutrients in this meal include all the vitamins you would normally get from some supplement pill found at a chemist.

This “masterpiece” got my creative juices flowing for some time and I must say, I was able to conquer yet another challenge and didn’t burn anything or under cook the sweet potatoes as they tend to get tricky from time to time.


Although I may have added my own flavour to the meal like I always do. You can do the same by adding cayenne pepper, lemon zest, paprika and even some paprika to enhance the taste according to you liking.


Feel free to play around with the recipe and have fun with the cooking process, after all it would be dull if you just copy and paste without adding your own magical touch to the mixture.
