Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the sweet potato[es] (skin on) into wedges and add to a large bowl with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil and a generous pinch of salt and give everything a good mix up

Add the wedges to a baking tray and put them in the oven for 20-25 min or until the wedges are tender and starting to crisp

2 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Peel and slice the red onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced red onion with a pinch of salt and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and cook for 3-5 min or until starting to soften

3 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Meanwhile, place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s]

Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2 [4] thinner pieces

Cut each piece in half across the middle – these are your chicken pieces

4 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic and cut the lemon[s] in half

Combine the smoked paprika, dried oregano, chopped garlic and chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to a plate

Add the juice from the lemonsoy sauce and 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] vegetable oil and mix to form a paste

Add the chicken pieces to the paste and mix until fully coated

5 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Once the caramelised onions have softened, push them to one side of the pan

Add the coated chicken pieces to the other side of the pan and cook for 3-4 min on each side or until cooked through (no pink meat!) - this is your peri-peri chicken

6 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

While the chicken is cooking, shred the little gem lettuce[s] finely

Slice the tomato[es]

7 Peri Peri Chicken Pitta & Sweet Potato Wedges

Add the wholemeal pitta breads to the tray with the sweet potato wedges and cook for 1-2 min or until warmed through
