Sunday Chicken

Naughty Chickens

I have always been at war with chickens.  Ever since I “accidentally” killed one in Barbados I swear chickens have always been out to get me.  So I eat them. I let them know who is boss.  Even though chickens can be naughty and down right annoying, I love them.  This makes no sense but bare with me.  I have to cook good chicken.  Why? Because it is the least I can do.  It is like Tom and Jerry.  Tom thinks Jerry is annoying, but if caught would still respect Jerry and would be lost without him.  Just eat the damn chicken!

This recipe was adapted from Good Housekeeping (May, 2013).



1 garlic bulb, a handful of fresh thyme sprigs, 50g butter softened, 1 medium chicken, 2 lemons, 500g baby potatoes (halved), 1 tbsp plain flour, 300ml chicken stock, 2 tbsps caramelised onion chutney.


1. Crush the garlic bulb and them set half aside.
2. Mix the garlic with 2 tbsps of thyme springs and the butter.
3. Rub this into the skin of the chicken.
4. Quarter one of the lemons and insert this into the chicken.
5. Season and roast for 45 minutes at 190 degrees C.
6. Quarter the other lemon and add this to the pan with the other potatoes.
7. After another 45 minutes remove the chicken from the oven ensuring that it has properly cooked.
8. In a saucepan heat the chicken stock, a tbsp of fat from the chicken, the flour and chutney.
9. When thickened serve the gravy with the chicken and potatoes.
