1 pound small new potatoes (about 10)
salt and black pepper
1 10-ounce package frozen peas
2 scallions, sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 small chicken cutlets (about 1 1/4 pounds)
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
Place the potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Simmer until tender, 15 to 18 minutes, adding the peas in the last 2 minutes; drain. Gently mash with the scallions, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, season the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat with the flour, shaking off the excess.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook half the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to plates. Repeat with the remaining oil and chicken. Serve with the potatoes.
