Cali Cali Sweet Potato Discs

These are great as a party platter or a tasty healthy meal.


To get the chicken tender I used a pressure cooker, but other options can be used like a slow cooker or cooking in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes at 200 degrees. The pressure cooker is the quickest option and only takes 20 minutes to cook the chicken with the most flavour and tenderness.






Ingredients

2 or 3 sweet potato cut into rounds

2 tbsp olive oil

Pinch of sea salt


For the chicken

3-5 skinless chicken thighs
