Tandoori Chicken & Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds from Chef’s Plate

Tandoori Chicken & Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds from Chef’s Plate

If you have read my post from yesterday, you will know that I recently got a shipment of two meals from Chef’s Plate.  They are a food delivery program that uses fresh and locally sourced ingredients to deliver meals of your own choosing.  It’s very convenient for you to have a great tasting and nutritious meal this way!  

Since it was my second meal prep from Chef’s Plate, I had an idea of what to do.  Yesterday’s Morrocan Spiced Lamb Burger was absolutely amazing so I was quite excited about this Tandoori Chicken and Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds plate too!

Ingredients for this Tandoori dish (chicken not shown)

I got all the ingredients ready.  This plate also had a difficulty level of medium and would take 40 minutes.

This recipe contained these ingredients:  chicken thighs, tandoori paste, red onion, lime, cilantro, red plum, yogurt, sweet potato.

Marinating the chicken!

Marinated

Chopped sweet potatoes and red onions

The first part included 10 minutes of marinating the chicken thighs with the tandoori paste and yogurt combination.  Then you stick pretty much everything else into the oven and wait for it to be ready.  A cooking tip including moving the top oven rack to the highest position before cooking and at the end of the cooking time to replicate how Tandoori chicken has crispy charred bits and to add variety in texture and taste to the chicken.

Dizzled with cooking oil, lime, salt and pepper

The same treatment with the red onions

Diced red plum

Yogurt, red plum, salt, pepper, lime juice

Fresh out of the oven!

I tried my best but the finished product doesn’t look much like what the photo shows.  I was just happy to eat, regardless.

The finished product. Sorry, I’m terrible at this plating thing

I think that the chicken thighs were very fresh and the marinate was pretty good.  I think that it could have been a little more stronger in flavour.  I think the roasted sweet potato rounds were delicious!  They were roasted just right with them actually being charred on the outside and maintaining its juiciness on the inside.  The red onions were good as well.

I thought that the red plum yogurt sauce was a little too sour for my taste.  I think it was because the red plum itself was a little sour already (not sweet) so it made the yogurt sauce even more sour.

Overall, I still think it was a great meal and recipe to be able to make Tandoori chicken at home with some great vegetable sides.  However, when comparing this plate to yesterday’s lamb burger, I really did enjoy yesterday’s more. 🙂
