  • 450g Potato
  • 80g Green Beans
  • 30g Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 Chicken Thighs
  • 2 Tbsp BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Spring Onion
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Tbsp Chicken Stock Powder
  • 75ml Water for the Sauce

Before you start, make sure to wash the veggies before you use them! You will also need some cooking tools, like Kettle, Saucepan, Fine Grater (or Garlic Press), Coarse Grater, Measuring Jug, Colander, Potato Masher and a Large Frying Pan.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Boil the Potatoes

Fill and boil your kettle. When boiling pour the water into a sauce pan with 0.5 tsp salt and pop on to boil.

Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel!).

Add the potatoes to the water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Step 2: Prep the Vegetables 

Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion. Then, trim the green beans and the spring onions then slice thinly.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press) and grate the cheddar cheese.

Step 3: Cook the Chicken

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on a medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, lay in the chicken thighs and sliced onion, fry until the chicken is browned on each side and cooked through, 13-15 mins. Turn every 2-3 mins.

After 8 mins, add the chicken stock powder, BBQ sauce and water (see ingredients for amount). Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and and simmer until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through, another 6-7 mins.

TIP: Add a splash more water if dry.

IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Step 4: Cook the Beans

Heat a drizzle of oil in a small frying pan on a medium high heat. When hot add the beans and a splash of water and cover with a lid.

Cook covered for 3-4 mins, remove the lid add the garlic and cook for a further 1 minute.

Remove from the heat, and set aside. Cover with the lid to keep warm.

Step 5: Mash the Potato

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan off the heat.

Add the cheddar cheese and spring onion, a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid to keep warm.

Once the chicken is cooked, taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Step 6: Finish and Serve the Dish

Now the best part! Share the mash between your plates and pop the smoky chicken and onion along side.

Share the green beans between your plates. Enjoy!
