TEXAN CHICKEN & SWEET POTATO BOWLS

-What You Need-

2 chicken breasts, roughly cubed

3 sweet potatoes

1 cup broccoli

2 kale stalks, lightly sautéed

2 cups quinoa or brown rice, cooked

2 Tbsp Cape Herb & Spice Texan Steakhouse Rub Seasoning

3 Tbsp olive oil

Salt & pepper to taste

For the dressing (optional)~

2 Tbsp plain yoghurt

1 tsp lemon juice, preferably freshly squeezed

1 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce

1 Tbsp milk

Salt & pepper to taste

 

-What To Do-

Chop the sweet potato into rough cubes and place them in a roasting dish. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, top with salt and pepper to taste before tossing together to ensure the potato is well coated. Clean hands are always best for this – then place in the oven at 200ºC for 15-20 minutes.

Flavour the chicken by placing the pieces in a bowl and sprinkling generously with the Cape Herb & Spice Texan Steakhouse Rub Seasoning together with a tablespoon of olive oil. Get stuck in with your hands again to mix together well.

Once the sweet potatoes are half cooked, remove them from the oven and push them to one side of the roasting dish. Place the chicken pieces and broccoli on the other side with another drizzle of olive oil. Pop the dish back into the oven for another 20 minutes or so - until the veggies and chicken are cooked through. In the meantime,

Whip up a quick dressing by combining all of these ingredients together.

Once ready, divide the cooked quinoa (or rice) between two bowls to create a bed before adding the chicken, broccoli and sweet potato; topping with the sautéed kale. Finish off with a drizzle of the dressing if desired.
