1kg sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 5mm-slice

300ml thickened cream

1 onion, finley sliced

1 barbecue chicken, shredded

1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 200C. Place the sweet potato in a large microwave-safe bowl with 1/2 cup water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook in the microwave on high for 6 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, lightly grease a 30 x 20cm baking dish. Layer the sweet potato, chicken, onion and 1 cup of the cheese in the prepared dish, pouring a little of the cream between each layer. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the remaining cream mixture over the top. Scatter over the remaining cheese and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden and the cheese is melted.
