Who else likes watching Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meals?
I love having it on in the background while I do other things, 
his quite fun to watch and his meals sometimes inspire me when I cook. 

I watched a episode where he made fried cajun chicken with sweet potato mash and salad,
I decided to bring my own twist to the meal and make,
 grilled cajun chicken with sweet potato mash.

Sweet potatoes are my fave and they're much healthier than regular potatoes. 
If you haven't tried 'sweet potato mash' 
you have to!
I was a bit hesitant but it tasted delicious, 
and I think it compliments any main dish beautifully.
