Chicken supremes are skin-on chicken breasts with the top of the shoulder bone left on – this helps keep the chicken moist. If you can’t get hold of them, chicken breasts will work just as well.

Ingredients

  • chicken supremes 2
  • olive oil 2 tsp
  • Cajun seasoning 2 tbsp
  • kale 100g, chopped, tough stalks discarded
  • cider vinegar 2 tsp
  • celery 1 stick, thinly sliced
  • red pepper ½, thinly sliced
  • cherry tomatoes 200g, halved
  • coriander a small bunch, chopped

DRESSING

  • runny honey 1 tbsp
  • wholegrain mustard 2 tsp
  • cider vinegar 1 tbsp
  • extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Coat the chicken supremes in the oil, then sprinkle over the cajun seasoning and season generously. Heat a non-stick ovenproof frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the chicken breasts, skin-side down, for 4-5 minutes or until really crisp. Flip the breasts and put the pan into the oven for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove onto a plate to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

  • Step 2

    Put the kale into a bowl and add the cider vinegar and a pinch of salt. Use clean hands to massage both into the leaves. Leave for 15 minutes to soften.

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients.

  • Step 4

    Add the celery, red pepper, tomatoes and coriander to the kale, then pour over the dressing and toss well. Divide between plates and serve with the chicken and any resting juices.
