Stir Fry Chicken, Sweet Potato & Pine Nuts

A couple of months ago I bought a copy of Lean in 15 by Joe Wicks, the Body Coach. I half heartedly followed a couple of recipes but never really got stuck into the book. After enjoying a very unhealthy (but extremely fun) weekend in Portugal with 12 of my friends this past weekend I was craving healthy food again. Over the weekend we discussed Lean in 15, and one of my friends mentioned a couple of her favourite recipes, which made me dig my book out as soon as I got home.

I've so far tried out In a Hurry Curry Fried Rice, Chicken with Smoked Paprika & Almonds and Cheesy Chorizo & Spinach which were all really delicious, and inspired me to make this chicken and sweet potato dish.

I made this version in my Actifry, but it could also be made using the oven & stove top.
