Lazy Blue and White Lunch: Garlic Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables Recipe

A delectable one pan Sunday lunch - slow-roasting a chicken with vegetables is a great way to keep the chicken nice and moist, whilst cooking the vegetables at the same time, thus saving on fuel. Adding the potatoes and root vegetables to the roasting tin infuses them with plenty of flavour, too, and there is less washing up! The lovage adds a savoury aroma and flavour the chicken as it cooks, and can be chopped up finely and added to the gravy.

  • butter , for greasing
