Preheat the oven to 200°C. In a roasting dish, place the clean chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper, garlic and 3 tablespoons of butter. Roast these for 20 minutes, turning them once to make sure the chicken is cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, place the sweet potato in a pot of water and cook until soft. Drain off the water, add one tablespoon of butter and mash until smooth. Serve it with the chicken and alternatively, some wilted spinach.
