Sweet Potato with Chilli and Thyme

I have decided to throw in a couple of ideas every now and again that don't really amount to a recipe but it just might inspire you in some small way.  Here is a nice idea of what to do with sweet potato.  There really is a never ending list of dishes this could accompany, however on this occasion we had it with Caramel Chicken as seen here.

Sweet Potato with Chilli and Thyme
When I say we had it with the Caramel Chicken, that is not strictly true.  The reason why the photo is of one lonely potato is because on the 1st attempt the potatoes were a bit tough so I returned them to the oven and had as a snack a little later!!  With that in mind, if you wish to have everything ready at the same time (which isn't a bad idea when preparing a meal) then I would bake the potato for about an hour and a half wrapped in foil or slightly less if not :
Sweet Potato
Big knob of butter at room temperature
A couple of chillis finely chopped
One crushed garlic clove
A few sprigs of thyme finely chopped

All you need to do is mix the ingredients with the butter and spread over the potatoes when cooked.  Serve with whatever dish you fancy.  It was delicious!
