Notes about this recipe

  • Totallywired on October 22, 2018

    I am not partial to bed of vegetable chicken recipes. The veg releases steam which reduces browning on the chicken, plus I find the aromatics (particularly onions) detract from the flavour of the chicken. You can solve the latter by sweating the aromatics before you add them, but then why bother.

    This has become my go to way to roast a chicken. The trick is to steam some of the veggies before hand to make sure that they get cooked all the way through.
