  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC.

  3. Finely slice the kumara and arrange in overlapping layers on the bottom of a large lasagne-style dish. Place the chicken pieces neatly on top.
  4. Mix together the pineapple pieces, sweet 'n' sour sauce and sherry if using and pour over the chicken. Cover with foil

Cooks Tips

- When cooking leg and thigh portions, always test they are well-cooked. Twist and wiggle the knuckle end of the drumstick; it should move freely from the leg and thigh joint.
