Krispy Chicken with Mixed Mash

IMG_4557

For the chicken –

Chop a couple of chicken breasts in to 3 pieces each and then marinate the chicken in some butter milk – this keeps the chicken from drying out – ideally do this and leave overnight if you can.

Next make some breadcrumbs by toasting 2 slices of bread and then whizzing in a blender (or simply buy some!), to the breadcrumbs add dried chilli, paprika, salt and pepper – quantities to your taste!

Take your chicken out of the marinade and coat in the breadcrumb mix, the buttermilk will help the breadcrumbs stick. Once all pieces are covered shallow fry for a couple of minutes each side and then bake in the oven for approx 15 minutes at 180 fan until cooked.

For the Mixed Mash –

This is a great way to get some veg in your meal and my children love it!

Dice one carrot, one sweet potato and one potato then simmer in some vegetable stock until all vegetables are cooked – you should make the carrots the smallest, followed by the potatoes, followed by the sweet potatoes being the largest chunks.

once cooked drain the excess liquid and mash with a fork, i like to leave a few chunks in mine. Next whist still warm add some spinach and allow it to wilt into the warm veg. Grate a chunk of cheddar cheese, add a knob of butter if you like and give everything  big mix and then serve when ready!
