Paprika Chicken and Sweet Potato Chips


A childhood dish reinvented.  Whenever we went out for lunch I always ordered fried chicken and chips and it came with some salad.  I swapped fried chicken for baked chicken, potato fries for sweet potatoes and added spinach.  I baked the chicken and sweet potatoes with paprika and seasoned with salt and pepper.


1 chicken thigh

23g of sweet potato.

½ tsp paprika

½ smoked paprika.

BBQ sauce to drizzle

Handful of spinach to serve

Salt and pepper to season

Olive oil to drizzle



Preheat oven to 180ºC

Remove two trays. In one tray. Dry rub the chicken thigh with smoked paprika, salt and pepper.

Cut the sweet potatoes into chip shape. In the second tray sprinkle the paprika on the sweet potato and drizzle olive oil.

Bake for 25 minutes or  until cooked.

Place spinach on a bowl, add sweet potato and chicken.  Drile BBQ sauce.
