  1. Cook 450g essential Waitrose new potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, halve 4 essential Waitrose British chicken breasts horizontally. Heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush the chicken with 2 tsp olive oil, scatter with ½ tsp chilli flakes and griddle for 6–8 minutes on each side – you may have to do this in batches.
