Ready in a mere 30 minutes, our speedy BBQ chicken lives up to its name. The highlight of this dish is the sauce, which is made with BBQ sauce and honey for a sweet and smoky flavour that’s perfect with chicken. Served with golden and crispy potato wedges and sauteed garlicky green beans, the beauty of this recipe is in the simplicity. There’s no fuss to this dish, just fresh, stand-out flavour.
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict 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.
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel!). Pop the wedges on a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, then season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer and roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. While the pan gets hot, season the chicken with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw meat. Once, hot, lay in the chicken and cook until browned, 4-5 mins each side. 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 on a baking tray and roast on the shelf below the potatoes until cooked through, 15-20 mins - don't wash your pan, you still need it! IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. When cooked, remove from your oven, cover with foil and allow to rest for a couple of mins.
Meanwhile, pop the BBQ sauce, honey and 1 tbsp of water per person into a bowl and stir together.
Pop your frying pan back on medium high heat (no need to wash it). Add a drizzle of oil and the bacon lardons and stir fry until starting to brown, 2-3 mins. Add the green beans to the bacon, season with salt and pepper. Stir fry until tender and slightly charred, 3-4 mins. Add the shallot and stir fry with the beans until the shallot is soft and golden, 2-3 mins, then add the garlic and stir fry for 1 minute. Pop on your plates and cover with foil to keep warm.
Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the sauce and stir well. Bring to a bubble and allow the sauce to reduce slightly. Once the chicken is cooked, add it to the pan and roll it in the sauce. Serve on your plates with the beans. Serve the wedges alongside and spoon any remaining sauce in the pan onto the chicken. Enjoy!
