Our answer

Nigella's Chicken And Pea Traybake (from AT MY TABLE) is a one dish meal that includes fresh dill. The slight anise flavour of dill pairs well with peas and chicken but for this recipe you can be flexible on the herbs that you use. However we would suggest that you stick to softer, leafy herbs.

Tarragon is also often used with chicken and peas but it is fairly strong in flavour and may not be to everyone's taste. You could increase the allium content by using roughly chopped chives instead. Chopped parsley is another option that is easy to find and we would suggest using some finely chopped parsley when cooking and finish the dish off with a sprinkling of roughly chopped parsley just before serving.
