Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, wash the baby spinach, crumble the fetta, peel and crush the garlic and peel the sweet potato then cut into 2 cm pieces.


Use a sharp knife to cut a deep horizontal slit into the side of each chicken breast fillets (don’t slice all the way through). Stuff with a small handful of the baby spinach (the remaining spinach will be used as a side salad) and the crumbled fetta cheese. Secure each breast with two toothpicks if you have them (if you don’t have toothpicks just be careful when you’re flipping the chicken in the pan).


Combine the olive oil and garlic and rub all over the chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper and set aside while you get the sweet potato ready.


Place the sweet potato in a large saucepan of cold water, bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and return back to the saucepan. Add the butter and a good season of salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth.


Meanwhile, heat a medium ovenproof frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. Transfer to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the oven and cover with foil to keep warm. Set aside on a plate for 5 minutes.


Remove the tooth picks from the chicken and serve alongside the sweet potato and the remaining baby spinach leaves.
