Chicken cacciatore with sweet potato


This traditional Italian dish has free-range chicken breast, fresh rosemary and black olives, making for a hearty stew. Served with sweet potato mash and a healthy dose of kale, because we love our greens.

Time: 25 minutes

Serves: 2



½ vegetable stock cube
1 red onion
1 tbsp oil
200g passata
2 x 170g free-range chicken breast
300g sweet potato
30g Belazu naturally-ripened pitted black olives
40g kale
40g sundried tomatoes
Medium handful of fresh rosemary



1. Boil a kettle. Dissolve the half vegetable stock cube in a jug with 150ml boiling water.


2. Peel and cut the sweet potato into 1cm cubes. Thinly slice the red onion. Roughly tear the kale and roughly chop the rosemary, discarding the stalks. 


3. Slice each chicken breast into 3 pieces.


4. Place the sweet potato in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and simmer for 10 mins until softened. Drain, mash, season with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and keep warm.


5. Meanwhile, heat a medium-sized pan with 1 tbsp oil on a medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 mins each side, then add the onion for 3 mins.


6. Add the passata, vegetable stock, sundried tomatoes, black olives, kale and rosemary to the pan and simmer for 10 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Season with black pepper.


7. Spoon the chicken cacciatore into two warm bowls, alongside the sweet potato mash.
