Method

55 mins
 

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

1 SALAD

Arrange the sweet potato wedges on the baking sheet, season with salt and rub with the oil. Roast for about 35 minutes until soft.

2 Peel the oranges, making sure you remove the pith. Then cut the peeled oranges into segments between the membranes. Squeeze out the juice from the leftover membranes.

3 DRESSING

Add the juice from the membranes to the orange juice. Add the rest of the dressing ingredients and mix well.

4 CHICKEN

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Drizzle the oil over and roast in the preheated oven until just done. Flake with a fork if you prefer. Spoon dressing over.

5 NUTS

Toast the nuts in the butter until slightly browned, add the sugar, salt and chilli flakes and fry until caramelised. Remove from the pan.

6 TO FINISH

Arrange the sweet potato wedges on a platter, put the chicken and cheese on top, sprinkle the herbs over and pour dressing over. Sprinkle nuts on top.
