Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. In a bowl, mix the paprika and sugar together with a couple of generous pinches of salt. Tip the potato wedges in a roomy roasting tin, toss in 2 tbsp oil until coated, then season with some of the paprika mix. Rub chicken with the rest of the oil, season inside and out, then rub all over with the rest of the paprika mix. Push the potatoes to the sides of the tin and sit the chicken in the middle.
  2. Roast undisturbed, for 1 hr 20 mins. Remove the chicken, set aside to rest for 20 mins, then use a fish slice to turn the potatoes and lay them in an even layer. Continue roasting the potatoes while the chicken rests, then serve everything together.

The chicken was lovely but the wedges just did not work at all, half of them burnt and the others were just soggy from the chicken juices.

Rubbing the marinade into the chicken is a messy business, but well worth it as the end result is really tasty. It was a little sweet for my taste so I might use less sugar next time, but apart from that this was very good indeed. I also served with coleslaw and salad, and will definitely be having this again.

Delicious - had this with coleslaw, salad and corn on the cob. Would go with some many things - so will be experimenting lots with this one.
