Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the sweet potato into 2cm chunks (no need to peel) and put on a large lined baking tray with half the Italian style herbs sprinkled over, a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine then spread out and roast on the top shelf until cooked and golden. Turn halfway through cooking.

While the potato cooks, make the salad. Roughly chop the tomato into 2cm chunks. Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Add the tomato, three-quarters of the coriander, the balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Toss well to combine and set aside.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the remaining Italian style herbs and a pinch of salt and pepper, then add to the pan and fry, turning every few mins to avoid burning, 15-18 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. Once cooked, transfer to a plate, cover with foil and leave to rest.
