Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Aluminum Foil


Roast the Potatoes
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm pieces (no need to peel) then pop onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle over a little oil then season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Spread out in a single layer and roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.
Prep Your Veg
  • While the potatoes cook, cut the broccoli into florets (little trees). Halve any large florets.
  • Pop onto a separate lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Set aside.
  • Halve and peel the onion. Chop one half (double for 4p) 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 and bash with a rolling pin 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 with a pinch of salt and pepper
  • Toss the chicken in the flour to evenly coat.

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

Cook the Chicken
  • When the potatoes have 15 mins of cooking time left, place the broccoli on the middle shelf of the oven and roast until slightly crispy, 12-15 mins.
  • As everything cooks, place a pan over medium-high heat with a 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 chopping board, cover with foil and leave to rest.
Make the Sauce
  • Return the pan to medium heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, 3-4 mins. Add the garlic and parsley and cook for 1 min more. 
  • Pour in the vinegar and allow it to evaporate. Add 75ml water (double for 4p) and chicken 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. 
  • Slice the chicken and serve with the roast potatoes and crispy broccoli alongside.
  • Finish with a generous drizzle of the garlic butter sauce.
