Preheat oven to 200°C / 400°F.
Transfer your chicken breasts to a baking dish. Rub tsp of olive oil and Cajun seasoning into your chicken breast until completely coated.
Add your sweet potato chunks to a separate baking tray, drizzle with tsp of olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
Bake both your chicken and sweet potato for 20-25 mins and remove from oven and slice your chicken breast widthways.
Meanwhile, prepare your Cajun dressing by combining cajun seasoning, greek yoghurt, light mayo, lime juice and parsley in a small bowl.
To serve, slice your chicken breast and lay a foundation of romaine lettuce in a large bowl. Scatter your baked sweet potato into your salad, add your chicken breast, pepper, avocado and lime wedge. Drizzle your cajun dressing on top and garnish with parsley.
