Tell Me More

  • The chicken is Red Tractor approved, and we marinate it before roasting to keep it moist and full of flavour
  • One whole chicken breast per portion
  • A brilliantly versatile dish, full of Italian flavours

Try It With:

  • Keep it simple with Creamy Mash and steamed greens
  • It makes a lovely sauce for pasta. Try it with tagliatelle, garnished with some torn basil and a squeeze of fresh lemon
  • If you’re hosting, serve with new potatoes roasted with garlic and steamed fresh asparagus and tender-stem broccoli. A fresh, lively Pinot Grigio and you’re off (we’d suggest Lemon Cheesecake for pud)

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • The chicken is marinated in red pesto, lemon juice, garlic and parsley and oven-roasted
  • To make the sauce, our chefs mix mascarpone with basil pesto and a little bit of chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Then they add fresh double cream and lots of basil to make a garlicky, creamy, herby sauce
  • Finally it’s garnished with semi-dried tomato halves to add a burst of flavour

Cooking Instructions

At our kitchen, we prepare food by hand using the same ingredients and techniques you would at home. We then freeze our meals at -35°C so it tastes freshly made when you cook it at home (no nasty additives or preservatives required). Most of our food can be heated from frozen (sometimes in minutes in your microwave). Check the instructions below.

These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your appliance may have a personality of its own (or a different power rating). Please adjust accordingly.
