Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Boil a kettle 

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s] and slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, but don't cut all the way through (think of the piece as an open book)

Lay a sheet of cling film or greaseproof paper over the opened chicken breast[s] and bash the chicken with a rolling pin to an even thickness throughout 

2  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Crumble up the feta

Arrange the crumbled feta over one side of the open chicken breast[s] and fold the other side over as though you're closing the book

Secure the chicken breast[s] together by threading the skewer[s] through the opening (think sewing!)

3  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Heat a wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a lid with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Add the chicken breast[s] and cook for 1-2 min on each side or until browned 

Add 150ml [300ml] water to the pan

Cover with a lid and cook for 12-16 min or until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear

Once cooked, transfer to a chopping board to rest

4  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Meanwhile, chop the potatoes (skins on) into bite-sized pieces

Add the potatoes to a pot with a generous pinch of salt

Cover the potatoes with boiled water and cook over a medium heat for 10-15 min or until tender 

Once cooked, drain and leave to steam dry

5  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Meanwhile, chop the olives finely

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

Add the chopped olives, chopped garlic, dried oregano and 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil to a pestle and mortar

Grind to a coarse paste - this is your tapenade 

 

 

6  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Trim and finely slice the spring onion[s] 

Carefully slice the rested chicken 

7  Feta Chicken With Tapenade & Rocket

Return the pot to a high heat with a large knob of butter and a drizzle of olive oil 

Once the butter has melted, add the potatoes, spring onion and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper

Lightly crush the potatoes with a masher and set them aside

Wash, dry, then dress the rocket leaves with a splash of olive oil
