- 4 free-range skin-on chicken breasts
- 500g new potatoes
- 200g skinned broad beans

- dollop of mascarpone
- 2 handfuls of chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley/basil/tarragon/mint/chervil)
- Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Heat a sauté pan over a medium-high heat, then cook the chicken breasts, skin-side down, for 4-5 minutes. Season, then flip the chicken and cook for another minute. Transfer to a roasting tin (set aside the pan with the fat) and roast for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and juicy.

- Put the sauté pan back on a medium heat. When hot, fry the cloves for 2 minutes, then add the chicken stock. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the potatoes and beans. Stir in the lemon juice, mascarpone and fresh herbs. Season the chicken, then slice and serve on top of the vegetables.
