Pan-fried Chicken in Sage Butter

Pan-fried Chicken in Sage Butter

with roasted broccolini 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


Make the Mash
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a pot of salted water.
  • Chop the sweet potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • When the water is boiling, add the sweet potato 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. Cover to keep warm.
Roast the Veg
  • Meanwhile, trim the bottom of the broccolini.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). 
  • Pick the sage leaves from their stalks (keeping them whole). Discard the stalks.
  • Pop the broccolini onto a lined baking tray. Toss with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
  • Roast on the top shelf of the oven until tender, 10-15 mins.
Slice the Chicken Steaks
  • Meanwhile, 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. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Once cooked, remove from the pan and set aside.

TIP: Cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded.

Baste in Butter
  • When everything is almost ready, return the pan to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p) and a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry the sage leaves and garlic in the melted butter until crispy, shifting as they cook, 2-3 mins. 
  • When the sage has crisped, add the chicken 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. 
  • Add a spoonful of sweet potato mash and roast veg on the side. 
  • Drizzle any remaining sage butter over the chicken.
