Instructions

Make the Chips
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chips onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle toss with BBQ rub, salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer. 
  • When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Coat the Chicken
2
  • Mix 3 tbsp flour (double for 4p) and the Mexican spice in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Sandwich the chicken between two pieces of baking paper or cling film.
  • Bash with the bottom of a pot until it’s 1-2cm thick. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken.
  • Toss the chicken in the flour to coat.

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

Fry the Chicken
3
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Once the oil is hot, lay the chicken into the pan. 
  • Fry until golden brown and cooked through, 5-6 mins each side. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the pan, cover and allow to rest.

TIP: Reserve the pan for later use.

Cook the Veg
4
  • Meanwhile, boil a pot of salted water.
  • Trim the green beans, then cut into thirds. Zest and juice the lime.
  • Once the water is boiling, add the green beans and cook until just tender, 4-5 mins. Add the peas to the water and cook for 1 min more.
  • Drain in a sieve then return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Stir through the lime zest and a knob of butter. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Wipe and return the pan to medium heat. 
  • Add the honey, lime juice and 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p) to the pan.
  • Cook until thickened and sticky, 1-2 mins.
  • Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan and turn to coat in the glaze.

TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water to soften, 1 min.

Dish Up
6
  • Cut the glazed chicken breast into 2cm thick slices, then share between plates. 
  • Serve the zesty veg and BBQ chips alongside. 
  • Serve with a dollop of mayo alongside for dipping.
