Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 12 mins
Serves: 4
This 5-ingredient chicken is quick and easy to whip up for a weekday dinner.


  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 300 g cooked or BBQ chicken breast, sliced or shredded
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • to taste pepper


  1. Scrub skins and cut any blemishes off sweet potatoes. Use a fork to prick sweet potatoes at least a dozen times each.
  2. Place sweet potatoes onto a plate under a microwave-safe cover and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes, turn over and cook a further 5 minutes until softened and cooked in the centre. Be careful when turning over the sweet potato - steam will burn!
  3. Carefully cut potatoes in half lengthways and place each on a serving plate open-faced. Sprinkle halves with cheese then layer on chicken and tomatoes. Microwave for another 2 minutes if desired.
  4. Top with torn basil leaves and black pepper and serve.


  • Top with other salad ingredients such as baby spinach leaves, microwaved sliced red onion, canned corn kernels or beans, sliced red capsicum, mushrooms or spring onions.
  • Add drained artichokes, olives, sundried tomatoes, roasted pepper strips or other chargrilled vegetables.
  • Top with dried chilli flakes or chopped red chilli for some heat.
  • Replace basil with fresh coriander leaves and sprinkle yoghurt with ground cumin or paprika for a Mexican-style flavour.

Comment: Sweet potato cooking time may vary from 4-7 minutes per side, depending on the size and how many are in the microwave at once. If cooking 1 sweet potato, start with 3 minutes each side. Our small sweet potatoes is about 350 g. 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese is about 100 g.
