I would say don't peel the sweet potatoes. The skin is delicious if sprayed with a little oil and the wedges hold their shape much better. Even if you don't fancy the skin the flesh will easily slide off once cooked. Otherwise a lovely recipe

Had this tonight it's so easy and absolutely delicious As a little sauce I had low fat creme fraiche seasoned with salt and black pepper, This dish will become a firm favorite!!!!!

Amazing recipe, really filling, the different flavours and textures worked well. I served some asparagus and broccoli on the side and made some lemon butter which complimented the veg and chicken beautifully!
The wedges were well done before the chicken, so I had to keep them separately under the grill until the chicken was cooked. I didn't want the lovely wedges to burn!

Quick, easy and delicious. I took the "large" sweet potatoes rather too literally and ended up with more wedges than we could eat! I'll buy medium ones next time

Really enjoyed this. I put low fat cream cheese mixed with paprika in the middle. Will make again.

Made this last night, I made a pocket in the chicken and filled it with low fat mozzerella, seasoned the chicken and added a sprinkling of garlic powder, chilli flakes and cracked black pepper before wrapping the chicken with chorizo.

I served my chicken with garlic mash which complimented the dish so well.

Really simple to make. We added twice as much chilli as recommend and served with a side of steamed brocolli

Delicious for a mid week meal. The chicken was uber juicy!... really speedy too!
Next time I think I might put some philly or perhaps some low fat mozzarella in the chicken but it was lovely without.

Thoroughly enjoyed, I did a mix of sweet and ordinary potatoes, which was lovely. Only complaint is that the portion size was a bit on the small side - but that could have been because it was so nice we wanted more!

Such a lovely dish!! I serve mine just with seasoned potatoe wedges & a cheese and chive dip on the side as I dont eat mayo!!

This was so simple yet so good! While cooking on the same tray as the wedges, the chorizo released its juices which gave even more flavor to the already delicious wedges.
