Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Peel and slice the sweet potato into 2 cm chunks. Trim the ends of the green beans. Chop the carrot (unpeeled) into 1 cm thick batons. Slice the lemon into wedges. Slice the chicken breast into thin steaks. TIP: Place your hand flat on top of the chicken breast and use a sharp knife to slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks. Pick the parsley leaves and finely chop until you have 2 tbs.


Add the sweet potato to the saucepan of boiling water. Cook for 15 minutes, or until easily pierced with a knife. In the last 7-8 minutes of the sweet potato cooking time, place a colander or steamer basket on top of the saucepan and add the green beans and carrot. Cover with a lid and steam until the veggies have softened. Remove and set aside. Drain the sweet potato and return to the saucepan. Add 2/3 of the butter and the salt (for the mash) and mash, using a potato masher or fork, until smooth.


While the veggies are cooking, combine the plain flour, salt (for the chicken) and a good pinch of pepper in the first shallow bowl. In the second shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and add a dash of water. In the third shallow bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs. Dip the chicken steaks into the flour mixture, followed by the egg, and finally in the panko breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate, ready to fry. TIP: If you don’t have an egg, replace it with 2 tbs of milk.


Heat enough olive oil to coat the base of a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the crumbed chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and cover with foil to keep warm.


Melt the remaining butter in a small microwave safe dish on high for 20 second bursts, or until melted. Stir through the parsley. TIP: If you don't have a microwave, you can melt it in a pan.


Divide the panko-crusted chicken, the sweet potato mash and the steamed veggies between plates. Drizzle over the parsley-butter sauce (feel free to leave it on the side if your kids are fussy) and serve the lemon wedges on the side.
