I love easy food - as in just stick it in the oven and then dish it up once it cooked :) Makes life easy for everyone, especially on a week night when things need to get done and routines need to happen with kids etc...
So this is one of my easy meals I make when I have other things to do besides cook or just don't feel like it [gasp]
All you do is take a raw chicken (I use free range chicken) and place in a large roasting/oven dish.
Surround with *peeled and chopped up potatoes.
Drizzle with some olive oil and plenty sea salt - and some fresh rosemary (if you have) .
Place in the oven at 180 degrees celcius for roughly an hour to an hour and a half.
Make a quick salad while chicken is cooking (whatever you like- cucumber, tomato, lettuce, feta etc) and place in the fridge.
Check the chicken near the end so you don't burn it. And maybe stir the potatoes a little.
Take out when juices inserted in the leg/thigh area run out clear with no blood in it and the chicken skin is brown and crispy.
Cut up the chicken and serve with the potatoes and salad
* you don't even have to peel the potatoes if you don't have time - they will come out like wedges if you leave the skin on.
