Ground paprika

2 tsp

Skinless chicken breast

495 g, (buy 550g lean tenderloins), fat trimmed

Buttermilk

Breadcrumbs, multigrain

50 g, (⅔ cup)

Natural greek style yoghurt

¼ cup(s), (60g)

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 240°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Place sweet potato wedges on 1 prepared tray and lightly spray with oil. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
  2. Meanwhile, combine chicken and buttermilk in a bowl. Toss to coat. Combine spice coating and breadcrumbs in a separate bowl. Dip chicken pieces 1 at a time to coat in crumb mixture and place on remaining prepared tray. Lightly spray chicken pieces with oil and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed broccoli and cauliflower. TIPS: For a smoother dipping sauce, process all ingredients in a small food processor until smooth. For this recipe you need to use very small sweet potato (kumara), otherwise they will not cook in the required time.
