Lime-glazed Chicken With Peppery Rocket And Crushed Potatoes

“One person wanted me to trade a Madonna CD for a chicken. But I said no. The Madonna CD was definitely not worth a chicken”

-Theodoris Roussos, a butcher in Athens using bartering in a country beset with financial controls and a shaky banking system

This is a wonderful supper for two…. or a Sunday lunch for two. The yoghurty gravy is filled with the taste of the charred lime. The peppery rocket (or you could substitute watercress) cuts through the rich sauce and the stalwart potatoes giving everything a bit of zing. 

You can grill the chicken ahead of time, allow to cool, and make the sauce at that stage, which reduces the risk of it curdling. You can also, of course, cook the potatoes ahead of time and simply reheat.
