Sesame, Soy Baked Chicken with Sweet Potato

Hands up who wants another stress free oven baked (basically a hero) meal? I know your hand is up. Mmmm..okay maybe it isn’t. Just try it once though and you will be convinced. Anything that gives me extra time is always welcome.

Guys, if I didn’t mention already..it is the school holidays and so far I have walked onto a piece of lego approximately 5,655,342 times. It is the single most annoying thing to walk on. It can interrupt your happy walk towards the dinner table for goodness sake and that alone is a reason to hate the lego dance. Whilst we are on the topic of walking on painful things, shall we talk about plugs? I don’t want to jinx myself but I haven’t done that for many years..Imagines what will happen tonight.

On to happier things. I have recently started a new morning routine and when I don’t follow it, my mornings are nowhere near as calm or tranquil. So I am trying my absolute best to make sure I do certain things every morning to ease me it the day. Some things are easier then others and others are a chore. E.g. For some reason I really struggle with having a warm glass of water in the morning. I have no idea why. I am putting a little post together about it. 

About the flavourful Sesame, Soy Baked Chicken with Sweet Potato, this recipe comes with a ready made sauce that is perfect with rice. The sesame seeds add a little texture to the chicken. I just love sesame seeds by the way. How bout you? I could eat them all day, every day.

Also this is another dish that people will eat without complaint. The stuff of a mothers dreams. I do hope you try it and enjoy it. BTW I have many variations of this recipe on my blog. I think its just one of them dishes that you can tweak slightly here and there and come up with a different taste altogether.
