Chicken breast

Rocket and green bean salad

  • 200g of green beans
  • 100g of rocket
  • 120g of sour cream
  • 20ml of rapeseed oil
1
Preheat the oven to 200˚C/gas mark 6.
2
Use your fingers to gently separate the skin from the flesh of each breast to create a cavity. Stuff 30g of the 'nduja into the cavity
3
Pull the skin back over the breast to seal in the 'nduja stuffing. Brush or rub the entire chicken breast with the rapeseed oil and season with sea salt
4
Heat a cast iron or non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Place the chicken breast, skin-side down, into the pan and fry until the skin turns a light golden brown colour. Turn the breast over and cook on the opposite side for a further minute
5
Transfer the chicken to the oven and cook for 15-18 minutes, occasionally basting with the juices from the frying pan. Once the chicken breast is cooked, transfer to a large plate and leave to rest for 3-4 minutes
6
While the chicken is resting, cook the beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and refresh in ice-cold water for another 4 minutes
  • 200g of green beans
7
For the dressing, combine the sour cream with the rapeseed oil in a large bowl. Add the cooked beans and rocket, toss to coat
  • 100g of rocket
