Let’s make green peppercorn chicken
Start with sealing the chicken in a little butter and olive oil. Make sure you season it with a touch of salt and pepper. Fry both sides for about 5 minutes or until it turns brown. Once browned, remove chicken from the pan.
Now, we’ll make the green peppercorn sauce in the same pan. Fry up a little garlic followed by the addition of broccoli and carrots. I like to add the asparagus at a later stage as it requires only a few minutes of cooking time.
At this stage, pour in milk, cream and water. You’ll also need to add green peppercorns and chicken stock cubes. A sprinkle of chives add another level of flavor to this green peppercorn chicken. Add chicken back to the pan, and simmer for about 8-10 minutes.
While chicken is simmering in the pan, you can prepare the side dish – pasta, rice or naan.
Delicious dinner idea guaranteed to please everyone in the family!
