Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix together the crème fraîche, mustard, garlic and stock with some seasoning. Arrange the chicken, skin-side up, in a roasting tray just large enough for the chicken and vegetables.
  2. Tuck the potatoes and beans in between the chicken pieces. Pour over the stock mixture then season the chicken and drizzle with honey. Cook for 40-45 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes tender. Scatter over the tarragon before serving

My family love this quick easy recipe, It has all the things in it that kids like.

Did what most other people said and put the green beans in 10 mins at the end to avoid incineration, but other than that didn't change anything else. No need to its lovely as it is.

Delicious! didn't stray much from recipe, just added green beans later (after 60s in microwave) as recommended and added some leftover asparagus and shallots too. Ridiculously easy and very much enjoyed :)

Family loved it, I added the green beans twenty minutes later, seemed to work fine, and out of lazyness used tin potatoes, sure fresh would bebetter but it didn't stop this being loved by husband and children. I loved the speed and ease of making it, totally effortless. Fantastic.

very tasty, but do agree about cooking the beans separately,

I made this on Sunday instead of the regular roast and it was delicious and sooooo simple. Though I did skip the green beans due to the comments, and used halved spring onions instead which was very tasty!
Perfect for a I can't be bothered to cook day =]

made this for dinner the other night.......used chicken breasts as that was what I had in the fridge. Took other comments on board, and I added some carrot and peppers to the mix, and cooked the green beans seperate. Served with broccoli and a little white to soak up the sauce.....was really nice, even the children(3 yrs and 18 months) ate it all.

Simple - Easy - Inexpensive. Ideal for a delicious midweek dinner or equally as impressive as a dinner party main. Can highly recommend

Made this tonight for two with the measurements halved and it worked really well and came out looking exactly like the photo. I was using regular potatoes, so I quartered them and that seemed to take care of the problem others here were having with them. Added the beans for the last 15-20 mins, and they were good - cooked but still crunchy. I agree that the tarragon is quite strong and not really necessary - there are enough flavours going on anyway. A really easy but impressive looking meal - will make again.

Sauce was far too sweet and the mustard was over powering!!! Didn't like the tarragon flavour and the potatoes were still hard after 60mins cooking. Would not recommend!

Beans overcooked vs chicken undercooked. I think there are better ways to enjoy chicken.

Really good and v. easy. Used chicken breasts (just put them in half an hour before the potatoes were done) and put the green beans in about 20 mins before the end. Very tasty. One small point - I cooked the potatoes for around an hour altogether and still thought they could have had another 15 mins or so when I served them..

Made this last night and it was so simple and delicious! Am already planning when to next make it and what I'll add/change next time.

Personally, there was too much honey making it too sweet for my taste - so next time I'll use half the amount.

Also planning on trying it with some onion and mushrooms.

Delicious recipe - the chicken was succulent and all the flavours complimented each other very nicely.

Definately worth cooking the beans seperately. A nice easy family dinner. Will cook this one again and again

really nice sauce. couldn't get hold of any creme fraiche so used greek yoghurt instead, which made the consistency thinner than i would like but was a good substitute. left out the potatoes and served with mash and peas instead.

Sticky and sweet - you could do this without the chicken as a side dish too.

Great super easy recipe. Agree re the beans, I have made it lots of times now and tuck a few beans in under the chicken then cook extra separately. Tastes even better the next day.

This was incredibly easy and went down well with a fussy nephew. Definitely one to try when short of time.

This recipe creates a lovely flavour in the chicken.
Make sure you use small potatoes, or give the whole dish longer in the oven to ensure they are not hard. Also, add the beans in 10 or 15 minutes after everything else, otherwise they will come out a little crisp!
For those who prefer a non dairy option - it also works with soya dream...
