There are few things in life more welcoming than the scent of a roast chicken, it has to be the ultimate comfort food, the sort of food that brings people together around the table.
This recipe for one pot chicken is good-mood food, and good-mood cooking, too. You just throw everything in the pan and let it roast away merrily. A wonderfully simple way to honour a whole bird.
With classic flavours of cider, cream and fennel this is a real crowd-pleasing recipe.
