  • ETAPE 1

    Gently lift the skin from the chicken breasts and place tarragon leaves between the skin and the meat.

  • ETAPE 2

    Peel the potatoes and thinly slice. Place in a large amount of salted water, add a garlic clove and a sprig of thyme to the water. Bring to the boil, season with coarse salt and then cook the potatoes to tender.

  • ETAPE 3

    Heat a frying pan and add a little olive oil. Season the chicken breasts and then place in the pan and then place in the pan skin-side down. Cook for 5 minutes over a high heat. Turn the chicken over, cover and cook for a further 5 minutes over a low heat.

  • ETAPE 4

    Whilst the chicken is cooking, drain the potatoes, remove the garlic and thyme and then puree the potatoes. Add the warmed butter and the butter and adjust the seasoning.

  • ETAPE 5

    Use stainless steel serving rings to plate the pureed potatoes. Remove the serving rings and serve the chicken alongside. Finish with a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.

Chef's tip

«Feel free to prepare the chicken in advance - lightly sear on both sides then place a preheated oven at 220°C and cook for 8 minutes when you are ready to serve.»
