Chicken Patty Meal Prep

Meal Prep is something super popular, but often paired with boring and bland foods. It doesn't have to be that way! I created these yummy spicy sweet potatoes and a delicious and easy chicken patty. I also added a small salad to go with it, but separated the containers so you can re-heat! 

Sweet Potato:
¼ teaspoon of rosemary
¼ teaspoon of turmeric
¼ teaspoon of pepper
¼ teaspoon curry powder
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
Sprinkle of salt
Sprinkle of pepper
1 Small sweet potato, washed, peeled and cut into circles

Chicken Patties:
500g chicken breast mince (uncooked)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 spring onions, sliced thinly
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 a zucchini, grated finely
1 carrot, grated finely
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Salad Mix:
2 Cups of lettuce leaves
9 Cherry tomatoes
9 Olives
3 Button mushrooms
1 Cucumber
1 Carrot
3cm of crumbled feta
1 Lemon, cut into thirds

Pre -heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. 
Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. 
Cut into ling strips or circles - whatever you fancy!
Add all spices into a bowl and mix. 
Splash the olive oil on the sweet potato and add the spice mix. Coat well. 
On a lined baking tray - place the coasted sweet potato and place into the oven for 40 minutes or until soft. 
Add chicken, carrot, zucchini, spring onion, garlic, salt, pepper, turmeric to a bowl and mix thoroughly to ensure all ingredients are mixed through.
On a non-stick pan heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-hight heat.
Use roughly two tablespoons of mixture per patty and roll into a small ball and lightly flatten into a small patty shape. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and completely cooked through.
Cut one open to ensure patty is cooked through and mince is white inside.
Divide salad mix by 3 into 3 seperate Tupperware containers.
In the remaining 3 Tupperware containers;
Add 4 chicken patties to each Tupperware container. 
Add 4-5 pieces of sweet potato to the each Tupperware container.
Top with a natural greek yoghurt dressing. (i put coriander, lemon and salt in the yoghurt!)
