(SOURCE: BBC GoodFood 101 Meals for Two)
Don't forget to pour the chicken juices all over the potato crush!
3 garlic cloves, peeled
3 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
3 tbsp olive oil
2 skinless chicken breasts
100g goat's cheese, cut into 6 rounds
3 strips of roasted peppers in oil, drained, each cut in half
some fresh thyme springs
300g small new potatoes
75g rocket leaves
1. Heat oven to 200 degree C. Soften the garlic in a little simmering water for 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and chop. Mix with the parsley and 1 tbsp of oil.
2. Make 3 deep diagonal slits across each breast. Reseve half the garlic mixture and spread the rest over the chicken and into the slit.
3. Halve each cheese slice and tuck two halves, a pieces of pepper, and some thyme into each slit. Season and bake in an oiled shallow dish for 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked.
4. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes for about 15 minutes. Drain, return to the pan and coarsely crush with a fork. Stir in rocket to leave to wilt. Stir remaining oil into the garlic mixture, season and stir into the potatoes. Serve with the chicken.
