Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then chop into 1cm wide chips (no need to peel).

Pop the chips onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, then sprinkle over the mixed herbs and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

2

Meanwhile, put the cornflour and peri peri seasoning into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine. Add the chicken thighs to the bowl of cornflour and toss to coat well. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

Put a large frying pan on high heat and add enough oil to completely coat the bottom of the pan. TIP: You want the oil to be hot so the chicken fries properly - heat for 2-3 mins before you add the chicken.

3

Once the oil is hot, carefully lay the chicken into the pan, reduce the heat to medium-high and fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 12-14 mins total. Turn every 2-3 mins and adjust the heat as necessary. Discard any cornflour left in the bowl. Once cooked, remove from the heat and place the chicken onto kitchen paper. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

While the chicken cooks, boil a half-full kettle. Trim the green beans, then cut into thirds. Zest and halve the lime.

 

4

Pour the boiled water into a medium saucepan with 0.5 tsp salt on high heat. 

Bring back to the boil, then add the beans and cook until just tender, 4-5 mins. Add the peas to water and cook 1 min more.

Drain in a colander, then return the cooked veg to the saucepan. Season with salt and pepper. Stir through the lime zest and half the butter (see pantry for amount). Cover with a lid to keep warm and set aside.

5

While everything cooks, put your (now empty) frying pan back on medium-low heat (no need to clean).

Add the honey, lime juice and the remaining butter to the pan. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min. Cook until thickened and sticky, 1-2 mins. Once thickened, gently turn the chicken thighs in the pan to coat in the glaze.

 

6

Share the glazed chicken thighs between your plates.

Serve the zesty veg and herby chips alongside. 

Dollop some mayo (see pantry for amount) onto your plates for dipping.

Enjoy!
