This recipe came about by necessity,when I was trying to figure out how to get the chicken cooked as quickly as possible for my screaming hungry children;and thankfully, it was a success !!


  • 1 Chicken jointed into 8 pieces

  • 1 large Red Onion cut into wedges

  • 4-10 Garlic Clove peeled

  • 3 carrots 2cm chunks

  • 1 Leek sliced

  • 2 small New Potatoes scrubbed

  • 80 ml Olive Oil

  • Sea Salt & Pepper


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 250c.

  • 2.

    Put the chicken pieces, red onions, garlic, carrots, leeks and potatoes into a large bowl and pour over the olive oil and season with some sea salt and pepper

  • 3.

    Toss with your hands, add more olive oil if it is a bit dry and spread out in a single layer on a baking/roasting tray

  • 4.

    Pop into the hot oven for 25 mins or until the chicken is cooked and the skin is crispy.

  • 5.



*Feel free to vary the vegetables in this - or just leave them out altogether and serve them seperately.
* If you do want to use old potatoes, just scrub them well and cut them into quarters.
* Herbs like sage or rosemary or thyme are good in this too. Just add in whole sprigs 5 mins before the end of cooking
