Golden Chicken with Braised Greens

A Jamie Oliver 15 minute meal. So delicious there is no way it only takes 15 minutes. Serve with his Potato Gratin.



  • 4 x 120 g skinless chicken breasts

  • a few sprigs of fresh rosemary

  • 2 rashers of smoked streaky bacon


  • 2 leeks

  • 1 cup baby spinach

  • 1 cup frozen peas


  • On a large sheet of greaseproof paper, toss the chicken with salt, pepper and the rosemary leaves, then fold the paper over and bash and flatten the chicken to 1/2 inch thick with a rolling pin.

  • Put into the frying pan with 1 tablespoon of oil, turning after 3 or 4 minutes, until golden and cooked through.

  • Halve the leeks lengthways, rinse under the tap, then finely slice. Put into a lidded pan on a high heat with 1 tablespoon of oil, stirring often.

  • Finely slice the bacon and add to the chicken pan, tossing regularly.

  • Stir the spinach and peas into the leeks and once the spinach has wilted and the peas are tender, pile on a board or platter with the chicken and bacon on top.
