Instructions

Roast the Chicken
1
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Add a drizzle of oil to a pan on high heat.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Fry it in the pan until golden, 3-4 mins. Turn over and cook for 1 min.
  • Put the chicken on a lined baking tray on the top shelf of your oven, cook for 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Cook the Potatoes
2
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • When boiling, add the potatoes to the water and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins. Stir through the spinach at the last minute.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat. 

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Prep the Veg
3
  • Meanwhile, halve, deseed and finely chop half the chilli (double for 4p).
  • Finely chop the chives (or use scissors).
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Return the pan to a medium heat (no need to wash it). Add a drizzle of oil if the pan is dry.
Start the Sauce
4
  • When hot, add the chopped chilli (use less if you don't like spice) and garlic to the pan and fry for 1 min.
  • Add 75ml water (double for 4p) and chicken stock to the pan.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer until slightly reduced, 2 mins.
  • Stir half the creme fraiche (double for 4p) into the pan along with half the chives. Season to taste with pepper then remove the pan from the heat.
Season the Potatoes
5
  • When the chicken is almost cooked, gently reheat the sauce.
  • Season the spinach and potatoes with a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Mix carefully to combine.

TIP: If the sauce needs loosening add a splash of hot water.

Plate Up
6
  • Divide the spinach and potatoes between your plates.
  • Serve the chicken breast alongside.
  • Spoon the chilli and chive sauce all over.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of remaining chives.
