1 pack Colonial Farm Chicken Kiev (4 per pack)
8 potatoes, peeled and, quartered
120g chopped butter, separated into two lots of 100g and 20g
1/2 cup milk
1/4 leek, pale section only, washed, dried and thinly sliced
200g (1 1/2 cups) frozen peas
150g chopped beans
150g chopped snow peas
60ml (1/4 cup) chicken or vegetable stock
3-4 leaves chopped fresh mint
Salt and pepper
- Place the Colonial Farm Chicken Kievs in an oven that has been preheated to 200 degrees Celsius and set a timer for 25 to 30 mins.
- Measure out your ingredients and prepare your vegetables.
- Put the potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling, salted water for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and return potatoes to pan. Reduce heat to low and stir for 1 minute. Add 100g of the butter and the milk. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. It is now ready to serve and keep warm.
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining 20g of butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add the leek and cook, stirring for 2 minutes or until soft.
- Put the beans and snow peas in another saucepan. Boil the kettle and pour the water over them. After 30–40 seconds, strain and place in a bowl.
- Add the frozen peas and stock to the leek mix and simmer for 4 minutes or until peas are tender, then mash.
- Add the beans and snow peas, stir in the mint and season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm until ready to serve.
- Divide the smashed pea mixture and potatoes amongst the serving plates and place the cooked Kiev’s on top. Alternatively place in the middle of the table and serve yourself.
- Stirring cooked potatoes over a low heat dries them out so you end up with a lighter and fluffier mash.
- Try different herbs with the pea and bean mix (such as thyme, basil, chives or rosemary)
- You can also make a salad from the cold pea and bean mix and combine with feta, rocket or spinach. It can be made few days before and can also be reheated.
- Oven temperatures can vary so watch cooking times.
