Herbed Chicken on Mashed Yams


Pretty easy but fancy meal with very complex exciting tastes. The lemon acid and the sweet yams mix well together.

Cut up and peel one large yam. Cut it into chunks about 1 inch in size or so. Drop in boiling water and cook until tender. Remove and add some milk, butter, salt, pepper, a dash of powdered ginger and a dash of cinnamon. Mix with a mixer or mash with a masher. 

Rub chicken breast slices with a mix of equal amounts of rosemary, marjoram and thyme with salt and pepper. Heat skilled on medium high and add 2 T. olive oil. Put chicken in and sear a bit and then lower temperature. Add 1/4 c. sherry and juice of one lemon. When the chicken is done in about 10-15 minutes (depending on how thin you sliced it), take chicken out of pan, add more lemon juice squeezed out of the rinds and sherry to deglaze. This will be dripped on top of the supper.

Put yams on the plate, top with chicken and drizzle with glaze.
