Method

  1. Put the carrots in a large saucepan of water and bring to the boil. After 10 minutes, add the leeks and boil for another 15 minutes until very tender.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Grate the zest from the lemon and squeeze 1 tablespoon of the juice. Mix the honey, lemon zest and juice and brush half on the underside of the chicken. Put the chicken glazed side up on a foil lined baking tray and grill for 5-6 minutes. Turn over and carefully brush with the remaining honey mixture. Grill for another 5-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, rolling it in the caramelised honey on the tray so it gets a lovely golden glaze.

  3. Drain and roughly mash the carrots and leeks. Season, then stir in the watercress until it has wilted. Serve the chicken on a bed of mash with lemon wedges on the side.

This recipe looked really nice in the picture, but when I made it the glaze burnt under the grill. How do you stop that happening so it looks appetizing like in the picture?!

Was pleasantly surprised with this dish, a lot tastier than I expected. Would be good to serve with potatoes as well.

I would make the chicken again but using chicken thighs (well..it's not out of the ordinary, a typical barbecue type recipe) but found the mash unsatisfying as an accompaniment. Apart from not really complimenting the chicken it was a bit of a mushy non-event.

the mash would be great using sweet potato instead of carrot
