The first was this one. In the book it’s made with Sea Bass but I don’t like fish so this is a butterflied chicken breast. It’s basically a warm salad of tender stem broccoli (Joe’s infamous midget trees), broad beans, peas and courgettes which are mixed with butter, mint & walnuts. The chicken (or sea bass) is grilled and added to the top.
It was really quick to make (15 minutes in fact!) and was really tasty. I didn’t use the full quantities in the book and it was still a bit too much. He really does make massive portions! I’ll definitely make this one again. It was delicious.
The second recipe is Potato salad with Butterflied Chicken (you can see why I made them at the same time!) This is one for Mark for his lunches. It has chicken, eggs, new potatoes and spring onions all mixed up with creme fraiche. It’s to be served with a green salad. This mammoth box is supposed to be one helping! Needless to say, it’s going to be two…..
