Sicilian lemon and Italian herbs combine to create a crisp glaze for the roasted chicken breast, which is paired with a smoky Mediterranean style onion mash. Griddled baby gem lettuce adds freshness to the dish and a spicy paprika drizzle brings it all together to make a light and bright flavoured supper.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    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.

    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.

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

Surprisingly nice. I wasn't expecting much from the lettuce, but it was actually my favourite bit of the dish! Discovered a new little thing i'll be using regularly for the vegetable side..

I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs and kids loved it! Smoky mash was gorgeous too. Only marked down by 1 star as the drizzle was a bit bity and odd taste? But apart from that lovely and would use again.

Natalie - Oct 20, 2018


Anton - Oct 20, 2018

Very overpowering and dry

Shian - Oct 18, 2018

Delicious, we had it with cauliflower which l roasted with the chicken also covered in oil mixed with the spices. I am concerned as to whether there is a lot of salt in these pots, can you let me know please.

Holly - Oct 18, 2018

Chicken was a really nice flavour and the mash was nice. Really surprised at how nice the charred lettuce was! The Mediterranean drizzle didn't add much and I added some milk to the mash as the onions and spices dried it out a bit. Different but very tasty! Super easy to cook.

Lesley - Oct 18, 2018


Tracy - Oct 17, 2018

Love it

Tracy - Oct 17, 2018

Sarah - Oct 15, 2018

Delicious and so easy . Even my 15 year old daughter likes it

Annette - Oct 14, 2018

The chicken was beautiful but the mash was dry, maybe milk or cream in the mash I think a warm drizzle would probably be better, the lettuce was nice but not my cup of tea
