A simple and delicious sweet potato and balsamic chicken buddha bowl



  • 1 medium sweet potato, sliced and baked
  • 50g baby spinach
  • 50g peas
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 20g sweet corn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon baba ganoush

For the chicken

  • 1 medium chicken breast, diced
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine balsamic vinegar, honey, and garlic powder in a small bowl then set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium frying pan, then add chicken and thyme. Fry for three minutes, turning frequently. Add the balsamic mixture and toss the chicken to coat evenly. Fry for a few more minutes until chicken is browned and tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To assemble the bowl, base the bowl with spinach. Top with sweet potatoes, sweetcorn, peas, cherry tomatoes, chicken and baba ganoush.
  • Sprinkle with chilli flakes if you wish. Enjoy!


Replace chicken with tofu or tempeh, and honey with agave syrup for a plant-exclusive buddha bowl.
