1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Prick potatoes or kumara all over and spray with oil. Bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
2 Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, the juice, spices and garlic. Add chicken. Toss and leave to marinate for 20 minutes, or until needed.
3 When the potatoes have about 20 minutes left, in a pan, heat remaining oil over medium. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Remove from pan and keep warm.
4 Add half of the chicken to pan. Cook until golden, remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken. Return all chicken to pan, add onion and vegetables. Stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes, until heated through. Add baked beans and cook for a final 3-4 minutes.
5 Remove potatoes from oven, cut in half and divide among 6 plates. Spoon over chicken and vegetable filling. Serve with yoghurt and chopped coriander.
