With very little hands-on time, roast chicken is an ideal option for a busy weeknight. Just season and pop in the oven!
1. Fast Five-Spice Roast Chicken
No need to wait until Chinese New Year to roast up this irresistible aromatic chicken. Use any cut you want - but bone-in breasts and budget-priced legs work particularly well. Rice is essential, of course, for soaking up the intensely flavoured braising liquid. Just scatter with lots of green onions and complete this low-cal dinner with bok choy or peas with shredded lettuce.
2. Roasted Chicken and Cauliflower Salad
This warm and satisfying dinner salad is perfect any time of year.
3. Express Roast Lemon Chicken
We guarantee this is the easiest lemon chicken you’ll ever make. It takes 5 minutes to pull together from 5 everyday ingredients, and once tucked in the oven, needs only one turning. Roast a pan of fingerling potatoes and squash cubes alongside and dinner’s done.
4. Roast Chicken & Parsnips with Spicy Vinegar
A nice surprise for vinegar lovers! You can make it as hot or mild as you like. But, the chili pepper really does complement the parsnip fries and vinegar!
5. Roast Chicken & Root Vegetables with Balsamic Honey Reduction
This cold weather, cozy-up dish is a fantastic introduction to parsnips and squash. Chicken breast and root vegetables are simply tossed together, oven roasted and served with an enticing balsamic vinegar and red wine reduction.
6. Roasted Chicken Drumsticks and Vegetables with Juniper Berries
These baked drumsticks soak up the flavours of vegetables, thyme and juniper berries making this the perfect dish to enjoy during the autumn season.
7. Prosciutto Wrapped Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables
It is hard to beat the classic roast chicken. While we aren’t trying to compete, this new twist on the classic is always a crowd pleaser. To keep the prosciutto crisp without burning make sure to baste the chicken often. If the prosciutto is still burning then tent it with tin foil.
8. Maple Glazed Chicken with Cheddar Apple Stuffing
Chicken breasts are plumped up with a sage-scented apple and cheddar stuffing, roasted to perfection and then finished with a maple-Dijon glaze. The flavour profile smacks of comforting fall dinners - so why not add root vegetables, such as pieces of squash, parsnips and sweet potatoes to the oven - and when the chicken is done you can tuck into a complete roasted dinner.
