Anyone ever make Jamie Oliver's tray baked chicken?

THe chicken is brined first, then baked with sweet and regular potatoes, bacon and onions/garlic.

  1. I have not tried that one, but I have made a couple of other chicken dishes from him, chicken in the oven, and they were terrific. My favorite is a chicken caesar where you roast the chicken pieces in a tray in the oven, covered with pancetta, and you place big pieces of bread under the chicken, for your croutons, and the bread is divine... crispy outside and flavored with all the juices from the chicken. I'd give your recipe a try!

    1. Am making this tomorrow (brining overnight tonight) and will let you know how it turns out. Looks delicious and rustic.

          It was delicious! Loved the brine. I frequently use brines but this one will be my new favourite for other dishes, too. I used pancetta instead of bacon. As it also contains lots of cream, it certainly is not a low-fat preparation. Good flavour. My husband loved it, too. Will definitely be making it again!
