  • Potatoes, halved
  • butter, to spread on top
  • Chicken
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Herbs (mixed herbs)
  • Sprinkle of salt


  1. Put the potatoes at the bottom with the water (to stop it sticking before the meat juice starts to drip).

  2. Then put a layer of foil so you can lift the chicken out easily.

  3. Smear the butter on top of the bird and any other herbs and place on the foil.

  4. Put the lid on, then turn on high for 4-5 hours.

  5. Lift the bird out and put on a baking tray, along with the potatoes around it. Put salt on the potatoes.

  6. Flash roast in the oven at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes to brown. Turn the potatoes every 10 minutes.
