Chicken and Veg Time

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Trim the carrots, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons. Pop onto a large lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer on one side of the tray. 

Pop the chicken breasts onto the other side of the tray and drizzle with honey (see pantry for amount) and season with salt and pepper. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging

Ready to Roast

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the potatoes. 

When the oven is hot, roast the carrots and chicken on the top shelf until the carrots are tender and the chicken is cooked through, 25-30 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Meanwhile, pop the garlic (unpeeled) into a small piece of foil with a drizzle of oil and scrunch to enclose it. Add the garlic parcel to the same tray to roast until soft, 10-12 mins, then remove and set aside.

Cook the Potatoes

While everything roasts, chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peel first if you prefer).

When your pan of water is boiling, add the potatoes and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back into the pan. Cover with a lid to keep warm.

Make the Bacon and Mushroom Sauce

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the bacon and cook, 2-3 mins. Add the mushrooms, then stir-fry until both are golden, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

Pour in the water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) and bring to the boil, then stir in the red wine jus paste. TIP: If your red wine jus paste has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.

Reduce the heat to medium-high and allow the sauce to thicken, stirring regularly, 5-6 mins. Remove from the heat.

Garlic Mash Time

Once the garlic has roasted and cooled, cut the end with scissors, squeeze it out of the skin and mash with a fork. 

Add the garlic to the cooked potatoes with a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


When everything's ready, reheat the sauce if necessary, adding a splash of water if needed. 

Divide your chicken between your plates, then serve with the garlic mash and roasted carrots alongside. 

Spoon over the bacon and mushroom sauce to finish.
