Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 tbsp mascarpone
  • ½ small bunch of fresh tarragon, finely chopped,
  • 4 free-range skin-on chicken breasts
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for frying
  • 60g blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 200g kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • ½ lemon, juiced

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Crush the garlic into a bowl with the mascarpone and tarragon then mix.
  2. Season the chicken breasts, then loosen the skin to form a pocket. Stuff with the herby mix, then put on a baking tray and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Heat a large pan with a little extra-virgin olive oil. Toast the hazelnuts in the pan over a medium heat, tossing. Tip onto kitchen paper. Add the onion to the pan and fry over a high heat until lightly browned. Add the kale and stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add the chilli to the pan with the lemon juice and the nuts. Season, add a little more oil, then stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  4. When the chicken is done, rest it for 2 minutes. Serve the kale topped with the chicken and any pan juices.
