Get Prepped

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Bring a large saucepan of water with 1/2 tsp salt to the boil.

Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peel first if you prefer). Core and slice the apple into 12 wedges (no need to peel). Peel the garlic and grate half of the cloves, leave the other half as whole cloves (or use a garlic press).

When boiling, add the potatoes and whole garlic cloves to the water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Bash the Chicken

Meanwhile, trim the green beans. Pop them onto a piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and season. 

Fold the foil, sealing on all sides to create a parcel. Pop onto a large baking tray. Roast on the middle shelf until tender, 20-25 mins.

Meanwhile, sandwich each chicken breast between two pieces of baking paper. 

Pop onto a board, then give them a bash with a rolling pin until they're 1-2cm thick. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

Time to Fry

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, sprinkle over the mixed herbs, then lightly dust with flour (see pantry for amount). 

Lay the chicken in the frying pan. Cook until browned, 3-4 mins each side.

Transfer to a baking tray and roast on the top shelf of your oven until the chicken is cooked, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Bring on the Sauce

Wipe out the (now empty pan) and pop back on medium heat.

Melt in the butter (see pantry for amount). Once melted, add the sliced apple and fry until starting brown and soften, stirring occasionally, 5-7 mins.

Stir in the remaining grated garlic and fry for 1 min more

Stir through the vegetable stock paste, wholegrain mustard and water for the sauce (see pantry for amount). Season with salt and pepper. Simmer until thickened, 4-6 mins.

Mash Time

Meanwhile, once the potatoes and garlic are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan, off the heat.

Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid to keep warm.

Once the apple sauce has thickened, stir through the creme fraiche.

Return the chicken to the sauce and simmer until piping hot, 1-2 mins. Turn to coat. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.

Serve Up

When everything's ready, share the garlic mash between your serving bowls.

Top with the chicken and spoon over the creamy apple sauce.

Serve the green beans alongside.
