.@Anahaugh – Chicken fricassee with pesto and sun-blushed tomatoes

By Anna Haugh From Saturday Kitchen

Ingredients

For the pesto

For the chicken fricassee

To serve

  • 300g/10½oz new potatoes
  • 30g/1oz butter or 2 tbsp olive oil
  • few sprigs fresh parsley

Method

  1. To make the pesto, place the pine nuts, basil, cheese and garlic in a food processor or blender. Add the lemon zest and blend, adding the 2 types of oil gradually. Add a pinch of salt. Taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste.
  2. For the chicken fricassee, fry the chicken pieces in the oil in a casserole. Add the sliced garlic and shallot and fry until softened. Deglaze with the white wine and then add the stock. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Stir in the butter once the chicken has cooked through.
  3. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the new potatoes for 15–25 minutes, or until cooked. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat the butter or oil in a frying pan and fry the potatoes, squashing them into the pan with a spatula as you fry them for 6–8 minutes, until crisp and golden.
  5. Serve the chicken fricassee with the pesto and sun-blushed tomatoes on top and the potatoes on the side. Garnish with the parsley.

.@Anahaugh stuffed roast chicken breast & mushrooms@SaturdayKitchen

Anna Haugh’s meat feast medley combines sausagemeat stuffing, pancetta and chicken breast, all in one neat parcel.

Ingredients

For the potatoes

For the stuffed chicken

For the mushroom sauce

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.
  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes until par-boiled, not fully cooked through. Remove and allow to cool whilst you prepare the rest of the dish.
  3. Combine the sausagemeat, hazelnuts and parsley in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  4. Divide the sausagemeat filling between the pockets in each chicken breast. Season the chicken with a pinch of salt and roll each chicken breast in 3 slices of pancetta. Place the chicken breasts on a baking tray and bake for 10–15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the breast. When the chicken is cooked through, remove from the oven and rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Grate the par-boiled potatoes on a box grater. Meanwhile, put a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, then the grated potato, garlic powder, onion powder and a pinch of salt and fry until golden.
  6. In a separate pan, melt the butter and add the garlic and sage leaves. Fry until the leaves are wilted, then add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cook for 1–2 minutes until golden.
  7. Add the chicken stock and reduce to a sauce consistency. You can add an extra knob of butter to finish the sauce, if you like.
  8. To serve, place the fried potato on a serving plate. Carve the chicken and arrange on top, finishing with the mushroom sauce.
