Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6 and boil a kettle

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into large bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a baking tray and drizzle generously with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper

Put the tray in the oven for 30 min or until golden and crisp – these are your crispy roast potatoes

2 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

While the potatoes are roasting, heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium heat

Slice the lemon[s] in half

Once the pan is hot, add the halved lemons (cut-side down) and cook for 3-4 min or until caramelised then set aside for later, reserving the pan

3 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s]

Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with 2 [4] thinner pieces

Cover the halved chicken breasts in cling film and bash them with a rolling pin until evenly flattened and approx. 1cm in thickness

4 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Add a handful of flour to a clean tray or plate and season generously with salt and black pepper

Dip the flattened chicken pieces into the seasoned flour until both sides are well coated

Shake off any excess flour

5 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Wipe out the reserved pan with kitchen paper, then return to a medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil (enough to coat the bottom of the pan)

Once hot, add the coated chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 min on each side or until golden and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) – this is your chicken scaloppine

6 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Meanwhile, heat a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt, over a high heat

Once boiling, add the green beans and cook for 2-3 min or until the beans are tender with a slight bite

Once done, drain and set aside

7 Venetian Chicken Scaloppine with Green Beans

Once the chicken is cooked, add the clotted cream to the pan

Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] caramelised lemon and add the capers and cook for 1-2 min or until thickened – this is your lemon-caper sauce

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges

Chop the parsley roughly, including the stalks
