This is definitely one of my favourite meals, as it’s packed with flavour and it’s not even bad for you, it’s actually pretty healthy! Although chicken isn’t the cheapest of ingredients, I think that this meal is definitely worth the extra expense as it’s so good. Shop-bought chicken kievs just don’t compare to the homemade version!

Tip: If you don’t have or don’t like sweet potato then a normal baking potato would work just the same, although it may need 5 minutes longer to cook.

Serves: three people.

Cost per person: £1.61 (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).

Ingredients:

  • Three chicken breasts
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 25g butter
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper/cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • Vegetable oil

Method

1) Preheat the oven to 180C, and the grill to a medium heat.

2) Peel the sweet potato and slice into wedges. Place on a baking tray and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the mixed herbs and chilli powder, and drizzle with vegetable oil. Cook for around 30 minutes, until golden.

3) Whilst the chips are cooking, get started on the chicken. Finely chop or crush the garlic and mix with the butter.

4) Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast and spoon some of the garlic butter inside. Spread the butter on both sides of the chicken breasts and cook under a medium grill for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.

6) Remove the chicken from the grill and cover with more garlic butter and breadcrumbs; if they won’t stick try mixing them with some of the butter. Cook under the grill for another 3-5 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are golden.
