Cooking instructions

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place chicken on a tray lined with baking paper. Cook for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

 

Step 2

Peel and chop sweet potato into 2cm cubes. Place on a tray lined with baking paper and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30 minutes (turn halfway) or until soft.

 

Step 3

Chop all salad items then combine in a large bowl and toss.

 

Step 4

To make the dressing, roughly chop the mango and place in a blender. Add remaining dressing ingredients into blender and blend until creamy. If the sauce is too thick, add a little water.
