Cheesy chicken

This recipe was one of my Nan's signature dishes, along with steak and kidney pie and a bloody good roast. Since she taught me how to make it when I went to Uni, it has become my ultimate comfort food; it is by no means healthy, but tastes delicious and is easy to throw together. Now, whenever we make this we think of my Nan and lots of happy memories. Cheesy chicken is part of her legacy!You will need:2 chicken breasts2 packets of cheese and onion crispsa generous knob of buttergrated cheesemixed herbs Shis will serve two people! You basically need one chicken breast and one packet of crisps per person. comfort eatingTo start, melt a large knob of butter in a pan. Crush the crisps into small pieces and pour into a bowl. Add the butter. Mix together until all the crisps are coated, and add some mixed herbs. Place the (uncooked) chicken in a oven-proof dish and cover with the crisp topping. Cover the dish loosely with foil, and put into the oven (approx 180C) for about 20 minutes. comfort eatingAfter 20 minutes, remove from the oven and top the crisp mixture with grated cheese. Add as much or as little as you want! Put back in the oven (without foil) for about 10-15 minutes.comfort eatingRemove from the oven, and check the chicken is cooked all the way through. Serve with roasted new potatoes and steamed veg. Variations: you could add anything to the crisp topping; finely chopped (cooked) bacon or chorizo are pretty tasty additions!This is how I do my roasted new potatoes:
comfort eatingSteam small new potatoes (skin on) for about 15 minutes until pretty much cooked. Remove, and put into a baking tray with some oil, balsamic vinegar and rock salt. Shake it all together and put in the oven for 15 minutes (I put these in when the chicken goes back in with cheese on) until crispy!
