Watch this Masala TV video to learn how to make Lemon Curd Chicken & Smashed Potatoes.


  • For lemon curd
  • Egg yolks 4 large
  • Granulated sugar 2/3 cup (134g)
  • Lemon zest 1 Tbsp (about 1 lemon)
  • Fresh Lemon juice 1/3 cup (80ml)
  • Salt 1/8 teaspoon
  • Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 6 Tbsp (86g)

For chicken

  • Chicken wide cut with bones ½ kg
  • All-purpose flour ¼ cup
  • Kosher salt ¼ teaspoon
  • Olive oil 2 tablespoons
  • Rice vinegar 1 tablespoon
  • Chicken stock ¾ cup
  • Lemon curd 1 cup
  • Water ¼ cup
  • Lemon zest 1 tablespoon
  • Scallions thinly sliced 2

METHOD For lemon curd

  • Fill the bottom pot of your double boiler with 1-2 inches of water. (Or use the DIY double boiler method listed in the notes.) Place on high heat. Once the water begins to boil, reduce to low heat to keep the water at a simmer.
  • Place egg yolks, granulated sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt into the top pot of your double boiler. Using a silicone whisk, whisk until completely blended, then continue to whisk as the curd cooks. Constant whisking prevents the egg yolks from curdling. Whisk and cook until the mixture becomes thick, resembling the texture of hollandaise sauce, about 10 minutes. If curd isn’t thickening, turn up the heat and constantly whisk.
  • Remove pan from heat. Cut the butter into 6 separate pieces, then whisk into the curd. The butter will melt from the heat of the curd. Pour curd into a jar or bowl and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top so it is touching the top of the curd. (This prevents a skin from forming on top.) The curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Once cool, the plastic wrap can be removed.
  • Refrigerate the curd for up to about 10 days.

METHOD For chicken

  • Pour the flour and salt into a large plastic bag and add the chicken pieces. Shake well and make sure all pieces are evenly coated.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Shake off any excess flour. Add the pieces and pan-sear for two to three minutes on each side or until they are almost cooked through and golden brown.
  • Remove the meat from the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add the vinegar and chicken stock and scrape up any drippings or brown bits with a whisk.
  • Add the lemon curd and ¼ cup of water and stir well to combine.
  • Once everything is mixed well and bubbling, add the meat back in and simmer for two to three minutes, or until the sauce has thickened a little.
  • Top with the scallions and lemon zest and serve.


  • Medium potatoes 1 – 1.2kg
  • Salt (for boiling) 1 tbsp
  • Unsalted butter, melted 2 tbsp
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp
  • Salt (for sprinkling) 3/4 tsp
  • Black pepper 1/4 tsp
  • Finely chopped parsley, Garnish


  • Cook potatoes: Bring a pot of water to the boil, add 1 tbsp salt. Cook potatoes until soft. It’s ok if the skin splits.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F (180°C fan).
  • Steam dry: Drain the potatoes and let them dry in the colander for 5 minutes or so.
  • Smash! Place on the tray then use a large fork or potato masher to squish them, keeping them in one piece. Thin = crisper. Thicker = fluffier insides. (Both good!) More nubbly surface = better crunch!
  • Steam dry again: Leave on the tray to steam dry for 5 minutes or so – makes them crispier!
  • Drizzle: Drizzle with butter, then olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake: Bake for 45 minutes (small potatoes) to 55 minutes (medium) or until deep golden and crispy. Do not flip!
  • Serve hot, sprinkled with parsley if desired.
