Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 300g chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red chilli, seeds removed, finely diced
  • 2-3 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1.5cm cubes
  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup continental parsley, roughly chopped (keep half for serving)


  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, cut into 3cm pieces and season with salt.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large fry-pan (preferably non-stick) on medium-high heat. Brown chicken for 1-2 minutes each side, (chicken doesn't have to be cooked through), remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Add a drizzle of oil to the pan and cook onion for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add garlic, chilli and paprika and cook for a further minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add the chicken stock and water and bring to the boil. Add chicken and sweet potato and cook, covered, for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Add the tomatoes and half the parsley and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  5. TO SERVE: Divide hot pot between plates and garnish with parsley.

  • I’ll keep this recipe for winter – too hot right now.


  • Sounds quite nice I think I might give it a go- would be fairly healthy too and a great winter warmer!


  • An interesting mix of ingredients, cheers.


  • Some nice ingredients. When chili is too hot, you could use use capsicum to make it more suitable for little mouths.


  • Ooh yes, I love this recipe. I can’t wait to try this in the winter – a great dinner after my son’s footy match.


  • This looks so tasty and warming. Will omit the chilli as some family members don’t like
