Jamie Oliver’s Tray Chicken

The recipe for this was in our Sunday paper. I’ve never tried any of Jamie Oliver’s recipes, but this one sounded good. The little intro that accompanied it explained that Jamie likes this for Sunday dinner. In the winter especially, I do like to make Sunday dinners, so this appealed to me.

I had a bit of an oops with this one. I misread the recipe and forgot to add the broth with the potatoes. Eek. I realized it when I went to add the chicken and added it then. Of course it didn’t thicken enough and the potatoes did not cook completely either. I ended up siphoning some of the juices out and thickening them with flour and adding them back in. Don’t let my disaster scare you away though. This was really, really delicious and when I reheated the leftovers the next day (getting the potatoes cooked through) it was fab. The onion and garlic give this a real oomph of flavor. Having sweet and regular potatoes gives it color and an interesting mix of flavor. I will make this again – and this time I’ll make sure I’m awake enough to follow simple instructions!

    Sounds divine!! I’m going to make it for dinner tomorrow night. We are cleaning out our freezer because we are moving (OY). Lots and lots of chicken parts have to be made!! Perfect. Thanks!

    I hope the move goes well. I remember trying to clean out the freezer before a move too! I think I ended up not being successful and had to take big baskets of foods to my mom’s freezer! Let me know how the recipe turns out.

    It’s in the blog where it says “the recipe for this” in the first line. I just went back and made it bigger with more words since I guess you didn’t notice it when I had just one word linked.
