Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Roast the Potatoes
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm pieces (no need to peel).
  • Pop onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • Once the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Prep Your Veg
  • Pop the broccolini onto a separate lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside.
  • Halve and peel the shallot. Chop into small pieces.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Finely chop the parsley (stalks and all).
Coat the Chicken
  • Place each chicken breast between two sheets of cling film.
  • Bash with a rolling pin or the bottom of a pan until 2cm thick. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Add 3 tbsp flour (double for 4p) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper
  • Toss the chicken in the flour to fully coat.

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

Cook the Chicken
  • When the potatoes have 15 mins of cooking time left, place the broccolini on the middle shelf of the oven and roast until slightly crispy, 12-15 mins.
  • While everything cooks, place a pan over medium-high heat with a good glug of oil
  • Once hot, lay in the chicken. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, 5-6 mins each side. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • Transfer to a board, cover and allow to rest.
Make the Sauce
  • Return the pan to medium heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Add the chopped shallot and cook until softened, 3-4 mins. Add the garlic and parsley and cook for 1 min more. 
  • Pour in the vinegar and allow to evaporate. Add 75ml water (double for 4p) and stock powder.
  • Bring to the boil and stir to dissolve the stock.
  • Lower the heat and vigorously stir in 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p) until melted and combined.
Finish and Serve
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce if necessary.
  • Slice the chicken and serve with the roast potatoes and crispy broccolini alongside.
  • Finish with a generous drizzle of the garlic butter sauce.
