Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the chicken and potatoes

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

    Rub the chicken with the LEMON & HERB RUB on both sides, then cook on a tray in the oven for 20 mins.

    Boil the potatoes in a pan of salted water until tender, then drain.

    Mix the MEDITERRANEAN DRIZZLE pot with 2 tbsps olive oil in a small glass. While the chicken and potatoes cook, move onto step 2. 

  • 2.

    Fry the onions for the mash

    Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 6-8 mins over medium heat until golden.

    Turn the heat down and add the SMOKY MASH MIX. Gently fry for 2 mins, then tip out the onions and spices into a small bowl. Wipe the frying pan to use again in a minute. 

  • 3.

    Prepare the charred lettuce

    Mash the potatoes with some butter, then mix in your spiced onions. Keep aside.

    Heat a little oil in the frying pan over medium heat and cook the lettuce quarters for 2 mins on each of the flat, cut sides. Flip them over to cook their outer sides for 1 min, then turn off the heat. They should be golden on the flat sides and softened, but still have crunch. 

  • 4.

    Serve!

    Serve the chicken with spiced mash and charred baby gem lettuce. Pour the Mediterranean drizzle over everything, and serve with olives (if having).

I wasn’t sure about cooked lettuce but we are willing to try anything! It was surprisingly delicious. I made the potato as per the recipe and wasn’t overly keen but would try again making them my usual way.

Fiona - Apr 25, 2019

Nice but family don’t like black beans

Maxine - Apr 24, 2019

Was a nice dish.

Lucy - Apr 23, 2019

2nd time I have cooked this meal and as much as I love it, I’ve struggled twice with dry chicken.

Probably my cooking but it wasn’t the best I’ve had!

Rachel - Apr 19, 2019

Absolutely gorgeous. The flavours are amazing! Will definitely get this one again! Delicious!!

zoe - Apr 15, 2019

Very yummy ???? particularly with the olives, they really enhance all the tasty flavours. Bring on that fried lettuce! If you don't like olives (never fear, I don't either) try a type called nocellara, they're light green and fruity and very palatable. Get an olive pitter too to make life easier, £2 on Ebay.

The charred lettuce is amazing!!

Jennifer - Apr 15, 2019

Never thought about cooking lettuce but it was delicious

Kathryn - Apr 14, 2019

This was a tasty mid-week meal, the chicken tasted delicious but I was so-so on the mash. Didnt care for the charred lettuce concept so I swapped out for green beans & it worked just as well.
