Pan-fried Chicken in Sage Butter

Pan-fried Chicken in Sage Butter

with roasted aubergine and sweet potato mash

Though this dish has a lot of enticing elements, the standout may just be the sage butter that bastes the juicy chicken. Sage is a herb with a powerful and distinctive taste, but it's also packed with vitamins A and C as well as even more antioxidants!

Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Potato Masher
Pot with Lid


Roast the Veg
  • Preheat oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. 
  • Boil a large pot of salted water.
  • Trim the aubergine. Cut into 2cm chunks. Cut the carrot into 1cm rounds.
  • Pop the aubergine onto a lined baking tray. Toss with paprika, salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out.
  • Roast on the top shelf of the oven until golden, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through. After 5 mins cooking, add the carrot to the tray with a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper and cook for remaining time.
Make the Mash
  • Meanwhile, chop the sweet potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • When boiling, add the sweet potato to the water and cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Mash until smooth.
  • Season with salt and pepper then cover with the lid to keep warm.
Slice the Chicken Steaks
  • While the sweet potato simmers, lay the chicken breasts out on a board.
  • Place your hand flat on top of the chicken breast and carefully slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging we use to keep it fresh. It will still taste delicious once cooked!

Fry the Chicken
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the chicken steaks and season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until cooked through, 3-6 mins on each side (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.
Baste in Butter
  • When everything is almost ready, return the pan to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Pick the sage leaves from their stalks (keeping them whole). Discard the stalks.
  • Add the sage leaves to the melted butter and fry until crispy, shifting as they cook, 2-3 mins. 
  • When the sage has crisped, add the chicken steaks back to the pan. 
  • Carefully use a spoon to baste the chicken in the fragrant sage butter.
Finish and Serve
  • Divide your chicken steaks between plates. 
  • Side with a spoonful of sweet potato mash and roasted veg
  • Drizzle any remaining sage butter over the chicken.
