I tried this today and it was gorgeous. I adapted slightly because I thought it might be dry. I added a tin of chopped tomatoes and lots of cherry tomatoes. I used sweet potato and new potatoes and towards the end of cooking added about a quarter of a pint of chicken stock. A huge hunk of crusty bread would have gone down well with it but seeing as we are trying to cut down and eat healthy this was actually very filling just as it was.

Family favourite! I have adjusted this recipe - I use less garlic and more paprika/oregano. Also when tasty tomatoes aren't readily available, I use 2 tins of good chopped tomatoes and a tube of tomato purée to ensure a rich flavoursome tomato base. I also try to keep potatoes on the top/round edge for most of cooking and brush with a little olive oil - this way they brown beautifully and taste divine with the paprika, oregano, salt and pepper sprinkled over them.

This is even better if you use zest of one orange over it before putting it in the oven. This is almost identical to a nigella recipe, just missing the orange (trust me if you thought this dish couldnt get better.. use an orange! haha) xx

I made this from the Hairy Bikers recipe and wow this really is one of the best Chicken dishes ever! I made mine with Chicken breast :)

A great dish this really easy and tastes great. I found that the initial cooking time of 20 minutes a little too short and the potatoes were slightly underdone the first time I tried this. So I would recommend adding 10 minutes to the first roasting time.
