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

Instructions

Make the Mash
1
  • Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a large pot of salted water.
  • 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.
Cook the Chicken
2
  • Lay the chicken on a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil. Season with salt and pepper
  • Roast on the top shelf of the oven until cooked through, 25-30 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken. 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.

Roast the Carrot
3
  • Trim the carrot and halve lengthways (unpeeled). Chop into 1cm wide, 5cm long batons.
  • Place on a lined baking tray. Toss with salt, pepper, 1 tsp sugar (double for 4p) and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer.
  • Roast on the middle shelf until tender, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.
  • Enclose the garlic in a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil.
  • Roast the garlic parcel next to the carrots for 10 mins then remove from the oven.
Simmer the Sauce
4
  • Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Place a large pan over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Fry until browned, stirring occasionally, 5-6 mins.
  • Add the red wine jus and a knob of butter. Simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, 4-5 mins.
  • Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce if required. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and cover to keep warm.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Once the garlic has cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork.
  • Stir the roasted garlic into the creamy mashed potato.
  • Slice the roasted chicken widthways.
Divide and Serve
6
  • Divide the chicken between plates.
  • Serve the garlic mash and roast carrots alongside. 
  • To finish, spoon the mushroom sauce over the chicken (reheating first if necessary).
