Chicken Supremes in Lovage Butter en Papillote

serves 4 | preparation time 20 minutes | cooking time 30 minutes

For the Potatoes:

20 baby new potatoes
For the Chicken Supremes
4 chicken supremes, skin on
3 tbsp olive oil
For the Herb Butter
125g salted butter, softened
3 tbsp chopped lovage or watercress
1 tsp chopped tarragon leaves
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
For the Papillote
120g samphire grass
60g podded peas
2 courgettes, roughly diced
2 large vine tomatoes, chopped, including seeds
To Finish:

55g chorizo, finely sliced
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 180°C.
To cook the potatoes, place them in a saucepan of water, cover and bring to the boil over a high heat. Turn the heat down to medium and cook for 10 minutes until tender, then drain and leave to one side.
To prepare the chicken, season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, add the chicken and fry for a few minutes until just coloured on all sides. Remove from the heat.

To make the herb butter, combine the lovage, tarragon and garlic with the butter and set aside.
To cook the chicken, put 4 large sheets of baking paper on the work surface. Divide the samphire, peas, courgettes and tomatoes between the papers. Top each pile with a tablespoon of the herb butter. Put a chicken supreme on top of the vegetables and a teaspoon of butter on top. Season with a little salt and pepper. Bring the edges of the baking paper up over the ingredients of the first parcel and fold and scrunch the edges together to seal. Repeat to form 3 more parcels and put them in a roasting tin. Bake the parcels for 15–20 minutes, then carefully open one to check that the juices run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is pierced with the tip of a sharp knife.
To finish, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the chorizo and fry for a few minutes until browned, then add the potatoes and stir until heated through. Serve the chicken still in the paper so your guests can open their own parcel, with the potatoes and chorizo.
