  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the chicken pieces and new potatoes in a roasting tin about 20 x 30cm and 7cm deep. Drizzle over 1 tbsp oil, toss well, season and roast for 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the soft cheese, mustard and stock in a jug until drain well smooth. Blanch the greens and peas in a large pan of boiling salted water for 2-3 mins until just tender; drain well.
  3. Toss the bread cubes in a bowl with 1 tbsp oil, the lemon zest, garlic and half the parsley. Spread them out over a baking tray in a single layer.
  4. After 15 mins, stir the greens into the chicken and potatoes, and pour over the cheese sauce, tossing to coat. Roast for another 10 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce coats everything. Toast the bread in the oven for 8-10 mins, tossing halfway through, until crisp. 
  5. Scatter the crunchy lemon and garlic croutons over the chicken and sprinkle with the remaining parsley to serve.
