Jamie Oliver has shared a five-ingredient secret for cooking a roast chicken that sees the meal done in 45 minutes. Sunday Roast is the highlight of the week for many families but can see the cook stuck in the kitchen for hours.
But the TV chef has shared his secret for getting the meal to the table in less than an hour, reports The Express. Jamie said: “Just a handful of ingredients will transform your Sunday roast with my paprika roast chicken. With a hack to reduce cooking time, buckle up, your Sundays are about to get revolutionised.”
Fans have tried the recipe already and are impressed. One said: “Made this for dinner this evening. Thank you Jamie Oliver for the inspiration! It was fantastic.”
The ingredients for the dinner are:
One kg potatoes
Three mixed colour peppers
One x 1.5kg whole free-range chicken
One heaped tablespoon of smoked paprika
One bunch of thyme.
How to make it
Preheat the oven to 200C. Scrub the potatoes and chop them into three-cm chunks. Chop the peppers at roughly the same size, removing the seeds and stalks.
Place it all in a large roasting tray and toss with one tablespoon of oil a little sea salt and black pepper.
Using a large sharp knife, carefully cut the chicken in half. Drizzle with one tablespoon each of olive oil and red wine vinegar, then rub all over with the paprika and a pink of salt and pepper.
Put the tray of veg on the bottom shelf of the oven, sit the chicken halves skin side up directly on the oven shelf above, then roast for 40 minutes.
When the time’s up, rub the thyme with a drizzle of olive oil. Pull out the tray of vegetables, give it a good shake, then strip and scatter over half the thyme.
Lay the rest of the thyme sprigs on top of the chicken and roast for a final five minutes, or until everything is beautifully cooked through, then serve.2023-11-20T07:52:33Z dg43tfdfdgfd
