Recipe: Thyme chicken and sweet potato mash

Fresh Thyme

Fresh Thyme

A favourite of mine is quick and delicious herby chicken and sweet potato recipe. It takes 30 minutes in the oven and you make the mash while the chicken bakes.

Wine Pairing:  viognier, chardonnay, fumé blanc, pinot noir

Preheat oven to 350°F

Ingredients – Serves 2

2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp fresh thyme

one large sweet potato (or yam, depending on what you call it where you’re from… the orange one)
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp butter or sour cream
pinch dried rosemary

Chicken Prep

  • Strip the thyme leaves and mix in a small bowl with the sea salt. You need enough of this to pat on both  sides of the chicken
  • Rub the chicken with olive oil, both sides, and rub on the thyme mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 mins on 350°F

Yam Prep

  • Peel yam and dice with a big knife into half inch rounds.
  • Place in a pot of water and boil until tender.
  • Mash the potatoes, add in the milk and butter/sour cream, mash some more
  • Crumble the rosemary in your fingers and add to mash, then stir

Serve with a veg of your choice. Recommendation:  broccolini

  1. Thanks for following my blog! This recipe looks delicious and I have both fresh Thyme and Rosemary growing on my patio so this will be a must try! I see you’ve paired it with Viognier. I’m going to try the Fess Parker upon a friends recommendation.
