  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Simmer over medium-high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken and cook until no longer pink in the centre, about 5 minutes; set aside. Stir garlic into the frying pan and cook for a few minutes, until fragrant. Pour in the tamari, water, honey and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the sweet potato, chicken, mango and crushed chillies. Cook and stir until hot. Dissolve the cornflour in 1 tablespoon of water and stir into the simmering mixture; stir until thickened.
