  • 2 tbsp paprika



    A spice that's central to Hungarian cuisine, paprika is made by drying a particular type of…

  • 2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 4 large baking potatoes, unpeeled, cut into chunky wedges
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil
    Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil is made from pressing sunflower seeds and extracting the oil. It's usually…

  • 1 free range chicken, about 1½ kg/3lb 5oz



    While it's the traditional Christmas bird, turkey is good to eat all year round, though…


  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.

lovely recipe but a little sweet for my taste buds but everyone else absolutely loved it

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.
