Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
Central American Style Spice Mix
Not included in your delivery
Water for the Sauce
Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel).
Pop them onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over the Central American style spice mix. Rub all over to coat well.
Once hot, lay the chicken into the pan and cook until browned, 5 mins each side. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
While the chicken cooks, trim the green beans. Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Once browned, pop the chicken onto a baking tray and roast on the middle shelf of your oven until cooked through, 10-12 mins.
Wipe out your pan and set aside for later.
When cooked, remove the chicken from your oven, cover with foil and allow to rest for a couple of mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Meanwhile, pop the BBQ sauce and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) into a small bowl and stir together to create your BBQ glaze.
Pop your (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
Once hot, add the bacon lardons and stir-fry until golden, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.
Next, add the green beans and shallot. Stir-fry until the beans start to char and the shallot has softened, 2-3 mins.
Stir in the garlic, then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min.
Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Allow to cook until the beans are tender and water has evaporated, 4-6 mins. Transfer to your plates.
Pour the BBQ glaze into the (now empty) pan, stir well, then bring back to a bubble and allow to reduce slightly.
Once thickened, add the cooked chicken to the pan and spoon the glaze all over to coat it, then transfer to your plates.
Serve the BBQ glazed chicken with the bacon, green beans and wedges alongside. Spoon over any remaining glaze from the pan over the chicken to finish.
