Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1.8kg Ingham's Chicken
  • Pinch Sea Salt Flakes & Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 125g Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 500ml Chicken Stock
  • 1 medium Potato, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups Frozen Peas
  • 2 tbsp Cream
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 bunch Parsley Leaves
  • 3 bunches Asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 cups Watercress Sprigs
  • 2 tbsp Pistachios, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Micro Herbs and Pink Peppercorns (to serve)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper, then use fingers to create a pocket under the breast skin and insert 2 Tbsp butter. Rub the chicken with extra virgin olive oil, then bake for 1½ hours, until juices run clear when pierced at the breast.
  2. Combine the chicken stock and potato in a medium saucepan and set over a moderate heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, until the potato is tender, then add the peas and cook for 3 more minutes. Transfer to a blender with the cream, garlic, cumin and parsley, then purée until smooth. Season with salt.
  3. Blanch the asparagus spears in boiling water for 1 minute. Carve the chicken. Pour pea purée onto plates, then top with the asparagus, watercress, chicken and pistachios
