Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Potato Masher
Aluminum Foil
Pot with Lid


Make the Mash
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until fork tender, 12-18 mins.
  • Once cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pot off the heat.
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, trim the parsnip and carrot (peeling optional). Halve both lengthways then chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons.
  • Peel and quarter the shallot
  • Trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • Pop the carrot, parsnip and shallot onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Toss with salt, pepper, half the Middle Eastern spice and a drizzle of oil.
  • Spread out in a single layer. Roast on the top shelf of the oven until tender, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.
  • Pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose.
  • Roast alongside the veg until soft, 20-25 mins.
  • In a bowl, toss the chicken with remaining Middle Eastern spice, a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken.
  • Pop onto a separate lined baking tray.
  • Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until cooked, 15-20 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

  • Meanwhile, mix the yoghurt with the pesto to form a drizzle.
  • Once roasted and tender, toss the veg with honey, half the balsamic glaze, and a knob of butter.
  • Once the roasted garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of its skin and mash with a fork. 
  • Mix the roast garlic well with the creamy mashed potato.
  • Arrange some garlic mash on the centre of each plate.
  • Place the balsamic roasted veg on top.
  • Spoon over the pesto yoghurt drizzle.
  • Slice the chicken and serve alongside.
  • Finish with a scattering of scallion and a drizzle of the remaining balsamic glaze.
