Recipe: One-pan chicken with honeyed roots and stuffing

One-pan chicken with honeyed roots and stuffing

Whether you're looking for quick and easy recipes or you’ve time on your hands to indulge in some slow cooking, Hamlyn’s fab new ebook has the perfect dish for you.

What you'll need

4 boneless, skin-on chicken breasts, about 175g each

2 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

6 parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks

6 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks

4 tbsp olive oil

75g packet stuffing mix (flavour of your choice)

2 leeks, trimmed, cleaned and cut into chunks

3 tbsp clear honey

2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley

Salt and pepper

Serves 4

Arrange the chicken breasts in a large roasting tin with the potato, parsnip and carrot chunks. Drizzle with the oil and toss well to coat the chicken and vegetables in the oil. Season with salt and pepper and place in a preheated oven, 220°C/gas 7/425°F, for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make up the stuffing according to the packet instructions and shape into four balls.

Add the stuffing balls to the roasting tin with the leeks and return to the oven for five to six minutes, until the leeks have just softened.

Remove the stuffing balls from the roasting tin along with the chicken pieces. Add the honey and parsley to the vegetables in the tin and gently toss to coat. Serve the chicken and stuffing with the roasted vegetables.
