This meal fab!! I've cooked quite a few times now. It's just perfect. I'm a nanny and look after 3 kiddies and the mum often buys a chicken so when I cooked it this way she was very impressed. A simple way to do a roast, and very tasty! I also added leeks.

This was great. Parboiled and seasoned potatoes for 5 mins before putting them in with the chicken. Used leeks instead of carrots (they don't need as long in the pan), and did asparagus too. Mrs Mac thought the chicken delicious - high praise indeed!

Made this today for Mother's Day for my bfs mum. I didn't add the potatoes. I used parsnips instead. Also roasted my chicken a bit before the veg as it was 1.7kg. Turned out wonderful! Needed to drain excess fat towards the end so the veg wasn't soggy but we all loved it x

I am trying this for the first time today but the veg is piled so high around the chicken (using the largest roasting tin I have). I'm very dubious that it will cook..........

I love this recipe. So easy and delicious and the feature of week 2 of my mission to cook a different roast chicken each week.

Roast chicken was planned so I decided a simple variation would be great! Changed the veg according to what we had available and adjusted times a bit as the chicken was 2 kg.
I used potatoes, parsnip (no turnips) and wedged onion (from the garden) but kept the carrot back until the last 30 minutes as they were very fine (they cooked well but didn't frazzle). We had some asparagus so I dropped them in, with the stock, for the last 10 minutes, instead of the peas; if you try this, make sure that they are settled in to the stock well.
Chipolata sausage roasted in honey for 30 minutes went well with the dish.

Oh, and NO marmite - don't like it so it doesn't live in our store cupboard

Absolutely briliant. Can't praise enough for its ease and taste! I've done this twice already, now back for a third time within a few weeks! Great when you haven't got time or don't want countless pots to wash. Gravy is really yummy although my partner likes his a bit thicker so I did add some granules second time round. Gorgeous! (Make your own yorkies on the side, failing that, crusty bread to mop up the gorgeous gravy)

So easily I managed to cook it and do the gardening all at once. Will make anyone look like a domestic goddess! Yummy!

I didn't use all of this recipe, used the roasting veg in the pan bit while cooking a roast lamb, and it turned out perfectly. Also used the marmite, and stock etc my partner said it was the best roast he'd ever had!

I didn't add the marmite because I don't own any and didn't want to buy it for the recipe. A really nice simple recipe for when I don't have a decent amount of time to cook a roast.

I've never roasted my veg in the same pan before! I was a bit dubious, but didn't have time to do dinner any other way(!) and it worked brilliantly. I didn't add the dried herbs, but did add a teaspoon of mustard in with the marmite. It was fab. I will definitely do this again.

Have tried this and the spiced roast and both were absolutely delicious. Doing it again tomorrow!

Brilliant low-maintenence roast.
My wife hates Marmite, so I substituted a little beef stock gel. I also added some leek chunks to the veg & roasted a few parsnips separately - adding them to the other veg for the last 10 mins.
Will do it again.
