- Add the chicken to the marinade and mix well to ensure it is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if time permits.
- Preheat a chargrill or barbecue grill to medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and spray both sides lightly with oil. Cook for about 8-10 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
- Meanwhile, use a mandolin or potato peeler to thinly slice the sweet potato into thin rounds or long strips. Pat dry with paper towel. Half fill a medium saucepan with oil and heat over medium until hot. Cook the sweet potato in batches, for 3 minutes until light golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove to a wire rack to cool.
- Serve chicken with sweet potato salad or rice.
- While Calypso® mangoes are in season why not make a few batches of the marinade. Spoon each batch into a snap lock bag and freeze for up to 6 months.
- You can replace the chicken with pork loin chops if you like
