    Serves: 4


    350g pack essential Waitrose Turkey Breast Fillets
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 preserved lemons, from a jar
    200g miniature potatoes, quartered
    125g fine green beans, cut into thirds
    400g can flageolet beans, drained
    2 tsp olive oil
    150ml Cooks’ Ingredients Chicken Stock
    2 tbsp capers
    4 tbsp reduced fat crème fraîche


    1 Place the turkey pieces between two sheets of clingfilm and beat with a rolling pin until flattened. Combine the garlic with ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper and rub over the turkey. Halve the lemons, scoop out and discard the pulp. Finely chop the skins.

    2 Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Add the green beans for the last 3-4 minutes. Drain, return to the pan and add the canned beans. Heat gently.

    3 Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the turkey, for 7-8 minutes, turning once until the juices run clear and there’s no pink meat. Place on a plate. Add the stock, lemons, capers and crème fraîche to the pan. Heat gently, stirring. Serve with the sauce spooned over.
