Instructions

Roast the Potatoes
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chunks onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Cook the Broccoli
2
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Trim the tip of the broccoli. Cut head into small florets and stem into 2cm pieces.
  • Once hot, fry the broccoli until starting to char, 2-3 mins.
  • Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Cook until tender, 4-5 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper then remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Get Prepped
3
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Pick the thyme leaves from their stalks.
Fry the Chicken
4
  • Surround the chicken in cling film. Bash with a pan until 2cm thick. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken. Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry chicken until cooked through, 5-6 mins each side.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Simmer the Sauce
5
  • Place a pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry the bacon until golden, 5-7 mins.
  • Add the mushrooms and thyme and cook until browned, 4-5 mins.
  • Pour in creme fraiche and 100ml water (double for 4p). Bring to the boil.
  • Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, 8-10 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TIP: Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if it thickens too much.

Finish and Serve
6
  • When everything is ready, thinly slice and plate each chicken breast.
  • Serve the tender broccoli and roast potatoes alongside.
  • Stir the truffle oil into the bacon mushroom sauce.
  • Spoon the sauce over the chicken.
