Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the potatoes on to cook in a pan of lightly salted boiling water. When they have been simmering for about 10 minutes, start to cook the chicken.

  • STEP 2

    Measure 2 teaspoons of the olive oil into a large frying pan or wok. Heat it, then add the chicken pieces but don’t stir them immediately – just let them sear for a few seconds over a high heat so they get nice and brown. Now turn them over and sear on the other side. Turn the heat down and cook for a few more minutes until golden.

  • STEP 3

    Add the tomatoes, olives and rosemary sprigs to the pan with the chicken. Stir everything together well and cook gently for a couple of minutes. Season the mixture with black pepper.

  • STEP 4

    Meanwhile, make the dressing by mixing the rest of the olive oil together with the lemon zest, lemon juice and mustard. Season with a little salt and pepper.

  • STEP 5

    Strew the watercress over 4 serving plates. Drain the potatoes then spoon them over the watercress. Crush each potato lightly with a fork. Share out the chicken mixture, piling it on top of the potatoes, then drizzle the lot with the olive oil and lemon dressing.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING WITH TOFU

For a vegetarian version, use 2 x 220g packets of smoked tofu instead of the chicken. Cut it into cubes and fry it gently in the olive oil for about 4-5 minutes before adding the tomatoes, olives and rosemary.

MAKING WITH EGGS

Poached eggs make a great alternative to chicken – the dressing mingles with the egg and potatoes and tastes fantastic. But omit the olives.
