Recipe tips
  • To check if the chicken is cooked, pierce the skin between the thigh and breast – the juices should be clear.
  • If using the pan juices to make gravy, pour into a jug and allow to stand for a few minutes. The fat will float to the top and can be removed with a spoon before making the gravy.
  • Freezing instructions: Suitable for freezing once cooked. For convinience, you can freeze this dish in portions, then defrost in the fridge or microwave and reheat thoroughly until piping hot throughout.
