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 20 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).

Lovely meal -distinct flavours the mash would be a great side for lots of things, sausages for example liked baking the chicken felt healthier.

The lightness of the spicy chicken is nicely balanced by the smoky mash. A lovely, easy to prepare supper dish.

Carly - Jul 03, 2018

Loved the chicken, full of flavour. The mash was very tasty - I might start adding onions to all of my mash now! The lettuce was a nice touch as it is an unusual side dish.

Louise - Jul 03, 2018

Sicilian Chicken is a tasty twist on a basic meal (chicken and potatoes) - the chicken is infused with Mediterranean flavour and accompanied with spicy mash, a real taste of Italy!

Emma - Jul 03, 2018

A really tasty herby chicken dish, true to the simply cook idea of being straightforward to make. The flavours are great and the lettuce side is a delicious unusual addition. This is a highly recommended dish and would love to get it again.

I would cook this dish to show to some of our friends who don't like spicy dishes.
