Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 shallots, halved
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 pancetta rashers, cut into strips
  • 2 small chicken breast fillets
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 200g salad potatoes, halved
  • ½ x 200g bag spring greens or shredded savoy cabbage

Step by step
