  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Season the chicken inside and out with salt and pepper. Heat the butter in a casserole dish until sizzling, then take 10 mins to brown the chicken on all sides. Remove the chicken from the dish, then fry the bacon until crisp. Add the potatoes and shallots, then cook until just starting to brown. Nestle the chicken among the veg, pour over the wine, then pot-roast, undisturbed, for 1 hr or until the chicken is cooked.

  2. After 1 hr, remove the chicken and place the pan back on the heat. Stir the peas into the buttery juices, adding a splash of water if the pan is dry, then simmer until the peas are cooked through. Finally, add any juices from the rested chicken, then stir through the herbs and serve with the chicken.

Looks delicious but the stated calorific value seems really high?

Made this for dinner this evening (a monday) with a few tweaks: - used chopped chicken breast (and reduced overall cooking time) - used a mix of white wine and chicken stock - the dish was quite soupy - used frylight in place of butter - (not my favourite but we're watching our weight for a few weeks to make allowances for all the Easter Eggs) I thought it was a really tasty dish and super easy to throw in the pot for a weekday meal. My boyfriend loved it too and only had one complaint - that it was too hot to eat straight away! Think next time I will add carrots as others have suggested and think it would go extremely well with some additional green veg

This is so easy and so tasty it is now a regular dish in our house - my 20month old daughter loves it. We use stock instead of wine I tend to put in some mushrooms at the beginning and generally throw in some extra veg with the peas at the end (generally broad beans as they are my little girl's favourite) tarragon is our herb of choice - delicious!

Yes, it is yummy, the chicken cooked beautifully moist and the veggies very tasty. Would leave out the potatoes next time and serve with roasties but I did add carrots as suggested. Will definitely make this again.

Just realised it means a whole chicken, rather than pieces of chicken. Boy do I feel silly! Going to try this soon, looks yummy.

most beautiful easy way to cook chicken - almost as good as Delia's 30 garlic cloves chicken - can enjoy a few glasses of wine with guests rather then rushing round the kitchen! I did roast pots and separate gravy too but no need - gorgeous juices and even thoughthe potatoes weren't crispy, everyone preferred them to the roasties

Is it really supposed to have 1.5kg of chicken for 4 people? That seems like a lot....

Hello. Is this cooked in the oven or on the job? Sorry, it's clear to me from the cooking instructions.
