Ingredients

  • 450 g small Italian new potatoes cleaned
  • 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 rosemary sprigs leaves only, finely minced
  • 2 garlic cloves lightly crushed with your hand
  • 1 tsp freshly dried oregano leaves
  • 2 organic large chicken breasts
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Clean the potatoes by gently rubbing them under fresh running water. Bring a large pot to a boil, then fold the potatoes in and cook for 5 minutes. 
  • Drain the potatoes and transfer into a large bowl. Add in 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, rosemary, oregano, sea salt and black pepper to taste, and stir to combine all the ingredients.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fold the garlic and the seasoned potatoes in and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes.
  • Brush the chicken breasts with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Push the potatoes around the edges, place the chicken breasts in the middle.
  • Sear the chicken breasts for 2 minutes on each side, then cover with a lid and cook for a further 5 minutes, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the pan and cut into thick slices.
  • Divide the pan-roasted Italian new potatoes among plates, and serve with the grilled chicken breast and a green salad.
