Dress the Board Pan-fried Chicken and some rather nice chips

This is along the lines of Jamie Oliver's Dress the Board Steak that I made the other day using my choice of ingredients.  

What a marvellous idea I thought it would be to chop different dressing ingredients then add them to pan-fried chicken.

Served with my home made crunchy chips and a little salad, you have a nice easy meal ready in no time at all.

Parsley, Garlic, Lemon, Red Chilli, Honey and Spring Onion....Yum!

To serve 2 you will need:
2 nice skinless chicken breast fillets
a little olive oil
freshly ground black pepper and sea salt - I always use Maldon sea salt

For the dressing:
a handful of flat leaved parsley - leaves only
1 or 2 red chillies - seeds removed
2 big fat cloves of garlic
2 spring onions
juice of half a lemon
a glug of extra virgin olive oil
a good drizzle of runny honey
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

How to do it:
Season the chicken fillets on both side and rub over a little olive oil.
Leave them to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking.

Heat up a frying pan big enough to hold both fillets.  Once it's nice and hot put the fillets in and cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes before turning and cooking for another to 12 to 15 minutes.  The time really does depend on how fat your chicken is and how hot your pan is - so I'll leave it to you to check on how they're doing.  *Don't have the heat up too high or the chicken will just be tough.

While they are cooking you can make the dressing.
Put all the ingredients onto a nice big wooden chopping board - apart from the oil, lemon and the honey. 

 Chop away until everything is finely chopped and looking lovely.  Drizzle over the olive oil, lemon and honey and mix together with the knife.

Once the chicken is nicely cooked through, remove from the pan and place on the board for a minute or two to rest.  Cover both fillets with the chopped dressing and serve immediately with whatever you fancy.

*The roughed up looking chips were actually chips gone wrong but they actually turned out rather nice indeed.

  1. Jan, a nice quick relish to top your chicken and those taters from the oven look fab!

  2. What a perfect meal Jan... love the flavors in the relish and the potatoes look perfectly delicious.

  3. I have to admit those rough cut chips looks pretty good to me, I am also liking the sound of the dressing.
