Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the chicken breasts horizontally through the centre, yet not cutting through completely. Open them out and flatten gently to make a butterfly shape. Brush with a little olive oil, season well and griddle for 3 minutes on each side. Rest and keep warm until ready to serve.
  2. To make the gravy, bring the chicken stock and wine vigorously to the boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from the heat and add the cornstarch and sugar, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until smooth and keep warm.
  3. For the potatoes, tip them into a large saucepan of boiling salted water and cook for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain and leave on one side. While the potatoes are cooking, get started on the vegetables.
  4. For the vegetables, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onions for a couple of minutes until softened.
  5. Blanch the asparagus and peas in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water.
  6. In a separate frying pan, heat the butter until foaming. Add the asparagus, peas, chopped sage and onion. Season and cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Heat the goose fat in a frying pan and fry the potatoes for about 5 minutes, or until crisp on all sides. Serve the chicken, potatoes and vegetables with the gravy.
