Heat the oil in a large non-stick oven proof casserole dish over a medium to high heat. Add the chicken and fry on each side for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

Add the potatoes and shallots and cook for 15 minutes until golden and beginning to soften. Pour over the stock and stir through ¾ of the herbs. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer. Return to chicken to the pan, cover and cook for a further 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

Scatter with the remaining herbs and serve with steamed broccoli.
