Ingredients

2 x 180g free range chicken breast skin on
400g kipfler potatoes
2 sprigs tarragon
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
50g rocket
1 lemon
2 free range eggs

Preheat oven & cook veg
Preheat oven to 200ºc on fan bake. Cut potatoes into 2cm thick pieces on an angle. Remove leaves of tarragon. Discard stem and finely chop the leaves. Roughly chop the tarragon. Toss in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil, half the tarragon, salt and pepper. Place on a baking tray on the middle rack in oven for 15 minutes before adding the chicken.

Cook chicken
In a bowl combine chicken with a drizzle of olive oil, remaining tarragon, salt and pepper. Bring a frying pan to medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Sear the chicken for 2 minutes each side. Once the potatoes have been cooking for 15 minutes, add the chicken to the tray and cook for a further 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Boil eggs
Soft-boil the eggs by simmering them for 6 minutes in a small pot of boiling water. Remove from heat and run immediately under cold water until cooled. Gently crack against a hard surface then peel. Roughly chop once peeled.
