Very tasty chicken & guac. Instead of using tortillas, I tossed leftover rice into the same pan I used to cook the chicken. Assembled chicken bits, rice and guac on a plate - delicious!

I decided to substitute the sweet potato for a Mexican cauliflower 'rice' which made this dish a little healthier while not making me feel as if I was missing out. The chicken marinade was delicious, as was the guacamole - however I would recommend omitting the garlic in this as it added a slightly astringent flavour at the end. Will be making this dish again!

Used lettuce wraps instead of putting it on the sweet potatoes. Delicious! My almost 2 year old loved it.
