Our 25 minute recipe
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.
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.
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.
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.

Nice but family don’t like black beans

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

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

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.

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.
