Poh’s Lemon Thyme Chicken Recipe

This is one of my favourite 'can't think what to cook' meals. The recipe looks long but it's actually super quick to put together and incredibly tasty. If you are in a proper rush, simply omit the potatoes, even though they're SO good.

Pohs Lemon Thyme Chicken Recipe


Mix the thyme, garlic, lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pour over the chicken pieces and massage with your hands until well covered. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.

To cook the chicken add 2-3 tablespoons of oil to a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and pan fry until golden on each side and cooked through.

To fry the potatoes, first drain them in a colander. Cool briefly, then press on each potato with the palm of your hand so it splits into several pieces. Heat the oil and butter in a large frypan until the melted. Add the potatoes and cook them in a few batches over a medium to high heat until golden and crispy. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the greens in a large bowl, salt them a little then cover them with freshly boiled water. Cover with a plate and rest for 5 minutes. Drain, then toss them in the remaining 'greens' ingredients. Divide the chicken pieces, potatoes and greens into 4 portions and serve hot.
