Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Roast the Potatoes
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (unpeeled).
  • Pop onto a large (lined) baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle on the Central American spice mix and season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss to coat and spread out in a single layer. Once the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary—you want the potatoes well spaced out.

Coat the Chicken
  • Place your hand on top of the chicken. Slice through horizontally to make two steaks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Add the chicken to a bowl with a drizzle of oil and half the chipotle paste.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix to coat and leave aside to marinate.

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

Get Prepped
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. 
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • In a small bowl, mix the remaining chipotle paste with the creme fraiche.
Cook 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 the pan is getting crowded). IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • When cooked, remove from the pan and cover to keep warm.
Soften the Veg
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil (no need to wash out the pan). 
  • When the oil is hot, fry the pepper and onion until softened and slightly charred, 6-8 mins.
  • Add the garlic and cook for 1 min more.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper then remove the pan from the heat.
Finish and Serve
  • Toss the peppers, onions and spiced potatoes together.
  • Serve the smoky chipotle chicken alongside with a dollop of chipotle creme fraiche.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of chopped coriander.
