My Sunday Roast

Some chicken and potatoes…you might think that I’m sharing a quite common recipe… Except that the combination of roasted chicken and lemon, garlic and green olives is delicious, that all the ingredients are of the highest quality (the chicken had a real chicken life, the small and tender potatoes are ‘rattes du Touquet’, the lemon is organic…) ! And everything tastes …like no other recipe! Ingredients:

  • 12 chicken bits (the ones you like in the chicken, ask your butcher)
  • 1Kg small potatoes, cleaned and sliced (I’ve used the ‘rattes du Touquet’)
  • 2 organic lemon, washed and cut into quarters
  • 1 cup stoneless green olives
  • 1 garlic head with unpeeled garlic cloves
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F
  2. In a large oven dish, add some olive oil (enough to slightly cover the bottom). Add the chicken parts and roll them into the olive oil
  3. Add the potatoes, the lemons, the olives, the garlice cloves and finish with salt and pepper
  4. Let the chicken roast for 1h45 and regularly moist the meat with its own juice
  5. You can finish up with a few minutes grill mode if you wish before serving
