Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6/fan180C. Squeeze the juice from 2 lemons into a small pan and heat with the butter, honey, rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper, until the butter melts and it smells fragrant.

  2. Lay the chicken in a roasting tin – don’t pile it up or it won’t cook so well. Add the potatoes and drizzle with lemon butter to coat evenly. Cut the third lemon into 8 wedges and tuck them in. (Can be made up to 2 hours ahead up to this point.)

  3. Roast for 50 minutes - 1 hour until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are crisp and golden. Serve with a green salad.

This was quick and easy to make. But my family found the potatoes a bit too lemony. But the chicken was beautiful. Will be cooking this again, but will cook pototoes in a different dish.

At first I found this a bit sweet, but after a few mouthfuls I was hooked! It was really quick and easy to do, so I will definitely make this one again.
