Servings 4 portions


  • 700 g potatoes cleaned and cut into thin chips
  • 2 large chicken breasts approx. 400g
  • 1 stock cube
  • 500ml water
  • tbsp cornflour + 5 tbsp of water
  • 15 g parsley leaves and stalks finely chopped
  • 125 g ball of mozzarella drained and pulled into small pieces
  • 70 g cheddar chopped into small bits
  • 250 g spring greens shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 20 g butter


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C Fan. Spread your potato chips in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, mixing once halfway through.
  • In the meantime, heat a tbsp of oil in a frying pan, then add chicken breasts and fry for 5 minutes on each side. Crumble in a stock cube and add 500ml of boiling water. Cover with a lid and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes, or until the chicken breasts are cooked through.
  • Whilst the chicken breasts are cooking, prepare your greens. Divide your shredded greens between two large tin foil sheets. Scatter finely chopped garlic and add a knob of butter. Create little foil parcels by scrunching the edges of the foil together.
  • Mix 1½ tbsp of cornflour with 5 tbsp of water and set aside for later. You will use this and chopped parsley to make your gravy.
  • When chicken breasts are cooked, take them out of the pan and cover with foil to keep warm. To your pan with the stock, add parsley and cornflour mixture and whisk promptly to avoid any lumps forming. Keep simmering until thickened, stirring continuously. Then take off the heat and cover with a lid to keep warm (you may want to reheat this later just before serving).
  • When your chips are cooked, gather them together into 4 piles on the baking sheet they were cooking on. Add the mixture of mozzarella and cheddar on top of each pile. Return to the oven for another 10 minutes. At this stage, put your greens parcels in the oven for 10 minutes as well.
  • Shred your chicken using two forks.
  • To serve, lift a cheesy pile of chips onto a plate, top with pulled chicken and drizzle with parsley gravy all over. Serve with garlicky greens on the side.
