Holiday Roast Chicken Recipe
15 min Prep, 1 h 30 min Cook
This succulent roast chicken is a must holiday dish. Ive adopted this recipe from my dad, it is a delicious and unique roasted chicken dish that is sure to impress any holiday gathering. Whether you’re hosting a small dinner party or cooking for the whole extended family, a roast chicken is one of the easiest dishes to make. That said, while many people learned to cook their chicken with onions and vegetables in a roasting pan, I like to surprise guests by adding something sweet—and it always gets compliments. My secret: diced pears, plums and apples. As the chicken cooks down, so does the fruit, creating an absolutely delicious sweet side dish that can be served alongside your vegetables.
Preheat your oven to 180 C / 350 F.
Peel your carrots and potatoes.
Wash, deseed and cut all your fruit into bite size pieces.
Add some olive oil to your baking dish, and cut potato into disks, not too thick and not too thin. Place them on the tray first.
Cut your carrots into disks and add on top and around your baking dish. Then add your onion and the rest of the fruit.
Season the vegetables and fruit with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, add your mayonnaise, minced garlic and mustard. Mix it all well, season the mixture.
Place your chicken on top of all the veggies and spread the mixture around the chicken. Season well and bake for 80-90 min depending on your chicken.
This is optional, but half way through, add your double cream all around the chicken.
Serve with vegetables and fruit and the chicken sauce on top! Enjoy :)
