Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Boil the onions and carrots for 4 mins. Drain, then toss with the oil in a roasting tin. Sit the chicken in the middle, smear with 1 tbsp butter and season everything well. Roast for 1½ hrs, giving the veg a stir once or twice during cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the cabbage and spring onions in 1 tbsp butter in a pan until tender. Stir into the mash, season, then shape into 4 cakes. Set aside.
  3. When time is up, check the chicken is cooked through. If it is, mix the mustard and honey, drizzle over the chicken and roast for 5 mins more. Remove and allow to rest.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the remaining 1 tbsp butter in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the cakes for 4-5 mins or each side until golden and hot.
  5. If you like, remove one whole breast and one leg from the chicken to be cooled, covered and chilled to use in Winter cobb salad the next day (see 'Goes well with'). Carve the rest of the chicken and serve with the cooking juices, veg and bubble & squeak.

This was really delicious and a fantastic different take on Sunday Lunch. I will certainly make this again.

I loved the bubble and squeak, I may blanch the cabbage next time as I like it soft.

The honey mustard chicken was delicious I wish I was a good chef who could make more of a sauce from the drizzle because there was not enough juices for us.

The roast veg was great but next time I will keep them whole, as soon as I cut onions they fall apart and over cook.

Gorgeous! Especially the honey mustard drizzle. The veggies the chicken was roasted on were soft and full of flavour and the bubble and squeak a lovely change.
