My 13 year old son made this for the first time, it's that easy to make! Has become a firm family favourite - so tasty and no dishes to wash up...

Definitely cook greens separately or add near the end. I removed chicken skin and wrapped in smoked bacon.

This was delicious, the best bit is that once you have done the preparation you can just leave it and get on with something else. Part way through cooking it looked like the green beans were burning so I took it out of the oven and tucked them further under the sauce, they turned out just right. My 7 year old said yuk I don't like green beans, then proceeded to eat the lot because the sauce was so yummy!

For me 2 tbsp of honey was far too much, it totally overtook the flavour and made it far too sweet. Maybe 1 tsp of honey would've been better for me. Also, a couple of tips no matter what your taste: make sure u add the potatoes when u put the chicken in as I thought due to the fact everyone said there veg were overcooked id add them in the last 20mins as u would in normal steam cooking but they were still very hard. And, make sure u crisp the chicken skin up beforehand as it wont quite obviously get crispy. so Id suggest to avoid more washing up, fry it in your dish then add all the ingredients after and whack in the oven!

My family love this quick easy recipe, It has all the things in it that kids like. Did what most other people said and put the green beans in 10 mins at the end to avoid incineration, but other than that didn't change anything else. No need to its lovely as it is. Rachel

Delicious! didn't stray much from recipe, just added green beans later (after 60s in microwave) as recommended and added some leftover asparagus and shallots too. Ridiculously easy and very much enjoyed :)
