“This will be nice served with slices of fresh whole grain buttered bread, and for an extra professional look, try griddling the cut side of a lemon”.

You will need

A baking tray, sunflower oil, salt and pepper, a small saucepan, a heavy frying pan or skillet, a meat thermometer (included)

Chef's top tip
“Add juice from the cooked chicken to the gravy to enrich the flavour. For a professional finish, add a small bunch of hard or woody fresh herbs in the cavity e.g. rosemary, sage and thyme”.

  6. Take the bags that contain the broccoli, red cabbage and carrots and pierce the bag slightly and reheat in your microwave for 2-3 minutes each until hot, and leave to stand for 1 min, alternatively you can place the bag containing the vegetables into a pan of simmering water for 6-8 minutes until hot. (if using the water method do not pierce the bag)

Delicious!

Food packaged and presented very well, with instructions. Chicken was huge. I purchased a meal for 2 but it easily covered myself, husband and teenage daughter, with left over chicken. Highly recommend and will definitely use again.
