Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes

  1. Marinate the chicken breast with olive oil, salt pepper, herbs, chopped garlic and set aside.
  2. Boil the vegetables and potatoes as well and set aside.
  3. Heat a pan or skillet, add a teaspoon of oil and lower the breasts of chicken into the pan with the skin side facing down. Let it sear for 5 minutes before turning around.
  4. When turned, add in 4 dollops of chilled butter and some crushed garlic and baste the skin a couple of times.
  5. Then deglaze with white wine. Cover and let the breasts cook for 10 minutes (occasionally turn and adding little water to cook).
  6. Now brush on some of the barbecue sauce you made a couple of times and let it caramelise. Once you pass the ten-minute mark, the breasts are cooked. Remove and set aside.
  7. In the same pan, add butter, cream and mustard with some orange zest or a measure of orange juice and toss the potatoes. Season it with salt pepper and honey.
  8. Remove it with a spatula and place on a plate.
  9. In a clean pan, add the veggies. When they sizzle, add butter, season with salt and pepper and toss. Serve them alongside the potatoes.
  10. This dish can be plated individually or can be served family-style with chicken breasts over a bed of sur-cabbage, with the veggies and potatoes in a side bowl and barbecue sauce to dip.
