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

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

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. Delicious!!!
