Ingredients

skinless chicken breast

600 g

garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

olive oil

1 tbs

leek(s)

1 whole, thinly sliced

frozen green peas

2 cup(s), (240g)

salt reduced chicken stock

¼ cup(s), (60ml)

baby potato

400 g, red skin, quartered

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place chicken in a bowl with garlic and half the oil. Season well with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place chicken on prepared tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until just cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook leek for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add peas and stock. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 2-3 minutes or until peas are warmed through.
  3. Meanwhile, place potato in a microwave-safe bowl. Add ½ cup (125ml) water. Cover and cook on HIGH (100%) for 8 minutes or until potato is just tender. Drain.
  4. Remove peas from heat. Grate lemon rind over peas and season with salt and pepper. Crush peas with a potato masher until lightly crushed. Add lemon juice to taste. Slice chicken and serve with crushed peas and potato.

Notes
