Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the oil with the curry powder, and rub this all over the chicken. Transfer to a roasting tin and cook for 1 hr 30 mins. To check if the chicken is cooked, insert a skewer between the thigh and the breast – the juices should run clear. Remove and allow to rest for 20 mins, loosely covered with foil.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the bacon until crisp in a dry, non-stick pan. Remove and leave to cool slightly. Pulse the peas separately to a rough purée in a blender, or using a hand blender.

  3. Mix the peas together with bacon, shallot, marjoram, chives, the splash of olive oil, a sprinkle of ground ginger, and season with salt. Serve alongside the chicken.
