Garlic butter & herb roasted chicken with roast potatoes

Garlic butter & herb roasted chicken with roast potatoes

A roast dinner is something of a treat and shouldn’t be overlooked.

This version has a touch of the naughty with the garlic butter infused chicken, but try this version as a special treat now that the nights are getting long and dark!

Ingredients for 1 serving

277 g chicken breast
68 g leeks, cut into 5mm pieces
95 g courgette, cut into thin strips
0.5 garlic clove, crushed
6 g butter
10 g fresh parsley, chopped
365 g new potatoes
25 g reduced fat sour cream
40 ml water
149 g Savoy cabbage
salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Put the potatoes onto a baking tray with a sprinkle of salt and bake for approximately 30 minutes until cooked.
  • Make the garlic butter by mixing the butter, garlic and parsley together.
  • Place the chicken breast on a medium piece of foil and cut 2-3 slits across the top.
  • Smear the garlic butter into the slits and cover with foil.  Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
  • Shred the cabbage into small pieces.
  • Put a large frying pan onto a the heat and add the cabbage, leeks and courgettes.
  • Add the water and pop a lid on for 5 minutes.  This is a nice quick way to steam veggies without a steamer pan.
  • When the veggies are steamed to your liking remove them from the heat.
  • When the potatoes are ready, the chicken should be ready at the same time.
  • Pop everything onto a plate and pour the chicken juices with the garlic butter over the chicken and potatoes.
  • Add a dollop of sour cream to the potatoes and eat!

Recipe Notes

  • The butter needs to be at room temperature when making the garlic butter.
  • You don’t need a huge pan of water or a steamer to steam your vegetables. A frying pan with a lid will do the job just as well!
