One-Pan Spring Chicken and Asparagus
April 2023
Reading time 1 Minute
Taking just five minutes to prepare before you pop it into the oven, this one-pan recipe is full of flavour.
Preparation time
5 minutes
Cooking time
1 hour
  • 700g new potatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 2 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan. 

Put the potatoes and oil into a large oven dish and toss to coat well. Tuck the chicken in amongst the potatoes and do the same with the garlic and rosemary. Drizzle with the juice of half the lemon and add the squeezed lemon to the pan. Season well and roast for 50 minutes. 

After 50 minutes toss the asparagus into the pan and give it a shake so the spears nestle in amongst the cooking chicken and potatoes. Cook for a further eight minutes. Check that the chicken is cooked and the veg is tender. 

Pick out the roasted garlic and squeeze the now melting centres into a small bowl, add the juice from the remaining lemon and season. Use a fork to mix the dressing and mash the garlic. Tip the chicken and potatoes onto a warmed serving plate and drizzle over the dressing. 

Tip: This recipe is easily doubled or halved.
