  • Clean the chicken and make an incision in the middle of the breast with a thin knife.
  • For the filling, put the diced chicken meat in a bowl over a cold bain-marie. Add the mustard, brandy, egg white and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix well.
  • Once cold, blend in a food processor until it forms a uniform paste, then put back into the cold bain-marie and add the fresh cream. Add the king crab meat and chives. Mix well and season.
  • Stuff the chicken breasts with the help of a smooth nozzle in a piping bag. Then brown the chicken breasts on both sides. Then put on a baking tray and roast in a hot oven at 180 °C / 350ºF / Gas mark 4 for 15 minutes.
  • To make the green chilli pepper sauce, blend the chilli, red pepper and garlic in a liquidiser. Add the parsley and coriander, then perfume with lemon juice and vinegar. Pour over the two oils and season. Finally put the mixture in a saucepan and reduce by half.
  • To make the coarse mashed potatoes with olives, start by washing the unpeeled potatoes and baking them on a bed of coarse salt on a baking sheet at 200 °C / 400ºF / Gas mark 6, until they are soft. Cool, peel and roughly chop.
  • In the meantime, sauté the onion and add the potatoes and crush. Finally add the diced olives.
  • Heat the olive oil and add the anchovy fillet and grind with a wooden spoon. Add the red pepper, the beansprouts and the diced cochayuyo. Sauté for a few minutes. Add the spring onion and coriander leaves.
  • Arrange the coarse mashed potatoes with olives on one side of the plate. Place the chicken breast on top, sliced to form a fan shape. On the other side of the plate, place the sautéed sprouts and cochayuyo. Drizzle with the green chilli sauce and serve.
