Crispy Chicken Breast with Salsa Verde
Crispy Chicken Breast with Salsa Verde



  • 1 skin-on chicken breast
  • 1 rosemary sprig, leaves chopped
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 10g butter
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • Handful of parsley, basil and mint
  • 1 tbsp chopped capers
  • Splash of white wine
  • Cooked new potatoes to serve
  • Give the breast a good bash to flatten, then season well with salt, pepper, rosemary and half the lemon zest. Heat half the butter and ½ tbsp of oil in a pan, then fry the chicken for 10 mins, turning regularly and adding the rest of the butter as it cooks.
  • Meanwhile, make the salsa by mixing the remaining oil, lemon zest, ½ tbsp lemon juice, the garlic, shallot, herbs and capers in a small bowl. Season to taste. Once the meat is cooked through, transfer to a plate to rest. Add a splash of white wine to the frying pan to deglaze, then slice the chicken and toss in the pan juices. Serve drizzled with salsa verde and some new potatoes.
