Method

Step 1

Place a large pot of lightly salted boiling water on high heat. Add potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes till soft. Drain. Then mash your potatoes with a knob of butter, a splash of milk, salt and freshly ground pepper and keep warm.

Step 2

Put a dry griddle pan or frying pan on to medium to high heat. Season the chicken breasts with the Cajun spice, salt and pepper and rub with a bit of olive oil. Place them in the hot pan and cook until they are nicely brown – about 6 or 7 minutes on either side, turning only once. Add a knob of butter and spoon the melted butter over the chicken a few times. Remove the chicken from the pan to a plate and cover with tin foil and leave to rest.

Step 3

Gremolata: Mix the parsley, lemon zest, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.

Step 4

Place a saucepan of lightly salted water on to high heat. Add the green beans for about 3 or 4 minutes until cooked but still slightly crunchy. Remove from stove, drain and season with a knob of butter, salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Step 5

To serve divide the mash between the plates, place the chicken on top and cover the chicken with the gremolata. Serve a portion of green beans on the side.
