Instructions

Roast the Potatoes
1
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. 
  • Halve the potatoes lengthways (quarter any larger chunks) and add to a lined baking tray.
  • Toss with Central American spice mix, saltpepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Get Prepped
2
  • Pick the sage leaves.
  • Lay the chicken on a board. Place one hand flat on top. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken.
  • Slice horizontally until there's 2cm left (don't cut all the way through). Open it up like a book.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!

Wrap the Chicken
3
  • Drizzle the chicken with oil and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Divide the cheese between the chicken breasts, pressing down firmly so it adheres. 
  • Carefully roll the chicken up, encasing the filling.
  • Wrap the bacon tightly around the chicken. Set aside.
Fry the Broccolini
4
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the broccolini and season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry for 2-3 mins then add a splash of water and cover with a lid or some foil.
  • Cook until the broccolini is tender, 4-5 mins.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Baste the Chicken
5
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Add the chicken, seam-side down. Fry until golden brown, 4-5 mins each side.
  • Add a splash of water, cover and cook for 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Move the chicken to one side of the pan. Add 3 tbsp butter (double for 4p). Allow to melt. 
  • Fry the sage in the butter until crispy, 2-3 mins. Add the truffle oil. Baste the chicken in the butter.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Plate up your cheesy chicken.
  • Serve the roast potatoes and pan-fried broccolini alongside.
  • Drizzle the chicken with any sage butter remaining in the pan.
