Coating your chicken with spices gives it a rich and new flavor, making it a good idea for a light meal tonight. You’ll also need a nice side for it, that’s why we’ve prepared this deliciously creamy and sweet potato mash. Its delicate texture comes from using heavy cream and egg yolk.

  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 10 ounces (285 grams) chicken, sliced into strips
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (110 grams) heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

  • Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes until tender.
  • Crush the coriander seeds in a mortar.
  • Add the chicken strips in a bowl. Season with coriander, oregano, and salt.

  • Next heat a separate skillet over medium heat and melt 1 teaspoon of butter in it.
  • Add the red onion and cook it for 1 minute. Pour the heavy cream and add turmeric. Stir, and cook until the sauce thickens.
