Method

  1. Drizzle the oil over the chicken and season. Heat a heavy-based frying pan and put the chicken in, skin side down. Fry on a high heat for 3-4 minutes until the skin is golden and crisp. Turn the chicken over and fry on a medium heat for a further 6-8 minutes until just cooked.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook on a low heat until soft and transparent. Stir in the horseradish cream and crème fraîche and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Toss in the peas, lettuce and sugar and season well. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the lettuce has wilted slightly, then remove from the heat and scatter in the mint. Divide the peas between hot plates, top with the chicken and serve with buttered new potatoes.

The lettuce and peas are sublime; so easy but impressive. I could eat a dish of this all on its own.

I really enjoy this recipe - quick easy and delicious. I make it two or three times in the warmer months, and I use chicken thighs, bonein and with the skin on as I think they are much moister than breasts, and have more flavour.

I left out the horseradish as I don't like the flavour, but this was still delicious. The lettuce and peas were a terrific accompaniment; very fresh and tangily creamy.
