Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces (if you can buy pre-cut-pieces of chicken, use them).
Peel the sweet potato if necessary and cut into bite-sized pieces. I cut it in half lengthways and slice into 1 cm thickness. Soak in a bowl of water.
Drain the sweet potato. Put them in a bowl and cover with cling film. Microwave at 600 W for about 2 and half minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a pan first (refer to the helpful hints section). Add the chicken and 1 tablespoon of sake (not listed in the ingredients) and cover with a lid. Cook over a medium heat. Turn over the chicken.
When the colour of the chicken has changed and cooked through about 70 to 80 % (about 2 to 3 minutes) uncover and clean the excess juice and fat from the bottom of the pan.
Add the butter and sweet potato. Cook until golden brown (over a medium to high heat).
Add the ■ mixed seasonings at the end. Reduce the sauce and use it to coat the chicken and sweet potato.
This has the same combination of butter and sweet potato. (Recipe ID: 1961013) 'Sweet Potato Flavoured with Butter, Served with Ogura and Vanilla Ice Cream'.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a tasty sweet potato dish with a hint of butter.
-Cooking times differ according to your microwave at home and the size of the sweet potatoes. Adjust if necessary. -If you don't use a non-stick pan use a little oil for cooking the chicken. If it is a non-stick one, the chicken fat is enough to cook with.
