Butterflied chicken with leeks and feta

So this was another of the Hello Fresh recipes, and again I was really impressed by it. Baby Blip ate a good big piece of chicken, with the leeks and feta. He also tried the tomatoes and potatoes. I must admit that a whole chicken breast was too much for me, but half seemed a bit too little. The husband did eat the whole chicken breast but even he thought that was too much.

With the ½ chicken breast I had left and the rest of the potatoes and tomatoes I made it into an even nicer dish the following day, and this is how I would make it again. I fried the leftofver potatoes, with garlic and a bit of rosemary. Then served it with some olives on the side, a lovely salad would also be good.

The recipe is below, however, I would recommend that after the potatoes has been boiled you fry them in a tbsp of Olive oil with a finely sliced garlic and one sprig of rosemary. You can still add the mint. And definitely needs either olives or a portion of salad on the side in my opinion!
