Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Add the Jersey Royal potatoes to a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt

Put the tray in the oven for 10-15 min or until almost cooked through and starting to crisp

2 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

While the potatoes are cooking, boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Strip the thyme leaves and chop them finely, discarding the stems

3 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Cut the lemon[s] in half

4 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Pat the chicken thighs dry and season them generously on both sides with salt

Once hot, add the chicken thighs to the pan, skin-side down, and cook for 10 min or until the skin has browned and crisped

Once browned, turn the chicken thighs, skin-side up, and cook them for a further 1-2 min or until browned

5 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Once done, add the chicken thighs to the baking tray with the potatoes (reserve the pan and juices for later)

Return the tray to the oven for a further 5-6 min or until everything is cooked through (no pink meat!)

6 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Meanwhile, trim the asparagus spears

Add the trimmed asparagus and a pinch of salt to a pot and cover with boiled water

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 3-4 min or until tender

7 Lemon & Garlic Chicken With Roast Jersey Royals

Return the reserved chicken pan to a medium-low heat with a very generous knob of butter and drizzle of olive oil

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and thyme and cook for 3-4 min or until softened but not browned

Once softened, add the juice of the lemon and season with a generous pinch of salt – this is your herby lemon butter
