Ingredients

  • 2 baking potatoes (about 8 ounces each), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (about 3 1/2 pounds total)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium saucepan, add the potatoes and enough cold water to cover, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, then return the potatoes to the pot. Add the milk, 2 tablespoons of butter and lemon zest and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to a work surface, flatten into an even round and cut into quarters.

Run your fingers under the skin of each chicken breast to separate it from the meat. Place 1/4 of the potatoes under the skin of each breast, gently pressing to evenly distribute. Place the stuffed chicken in a roasting pan, drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a platter. Stir the lemon juice, parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons butter into the pan juices, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
