    : Prepare the Ingredients
    Get the ground chicken out of the fridge 15 to 20 minutes before cooking.
    Preheat the oven to 180C / gas mark 4 (if you intend to use the oven).

    - Flat Leaf Parsley: chop finely ; - Sweet Potato: chop into 2-3 cm cubes
    - Mixed Salad Leaves: just wash and dry.
    : Prepare the Meatballs
    In a mixing bowl combine; the ground chicken, some salt, the cajun spice, parsley, garlic and a touch of cooking oil. Form meatballs and then keep them aside before you start cooking.
    In a FRYING PAN: Heat the frying pan to medium heat. Add the cooking oil. Carefully place the meatballs in the pan. Let them cook to about 75% on one side before flipping them over. Once they are done, remove from the pan and rest them for 5 minutes before serving.
    In an OVEN: Place the meatballs on a baking tray and roast them for about 15 to 20 minutes. Rest for 5 minutes after they are done.
    : Roast the Sweet Potato
    In a MICROWAVE: cook the sweet potato for 3 - 4 minutes on full power. Once they're done let them rest for 30 seconds before roasting them in the oven.
    In a POT: put the chopped sweet potato in a pot. Add just enough water to cover them. Add salt to the water. Boil for around 10 minutes or until tender.

    Cover the sweet potato in cooking oil. Season them and spread them in an baking/oven tray. Roast them in the oven for about 20 minutes.
    : Prepare the Salad, Plate and Serve
    SALAD: In a mixing bowl combine; the mixed salad leaves, cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss well.
