Apology post

So here it goes; I'm sorry for the lack of recipe post last week. To make up for that take a look at this gorgeous one pot dish (to make sure you can even cram in blog updates alongside work). 

One pot chicken with vegetables

  • whole Medium chicken(1.5kg approx)
  • onion, peeled and sliced
  • 400g carrots, peeled and diced
  • 600g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 800ml chicken stock (made from cube)
  • Pack Golden Vegetable Summer Soupmix


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C/ Gas 4.
  2. Heat a large flameproof casserole and add the chicken. Cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, turning frequently, so you can seal as much as you can of the bird. Remove from the heat then add the onion, carrots and potatoes to the pan.
  3. Sprinkle over the dried herbs and Worcestershire sauce then pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and cook in the oven for 1 hour then remove the lid, raise the oven temperature to 400F/200C/ Gas 6 and cook for a further 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through (the juices should run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is pierced using a knife) and the vegetables are tender.
  4. Remove from the oven then lift out the chicken onto a large serving plate, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest. Return the pan with the vegetables to the hob, place on a medium heat then sprinkle the soup mix over and whisk well. Reduce the heat and allow to bubble gently for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve slices of cooked chicken with generous spoonfuls of the cooked vegetables and sauce.
