These instructions are to serve two people. When cooking for one, four or six the same techniques apply but the preparation and cooking times may change slightly
We have used an oven proof frying pan to cook the chicken. If you do not have one please use a baking tray.
1. Preheat the oven to 200C fan forced
2. Prepare the produce: Wash the vegetables. Thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the apple. Dice the potato. Remove the tails from the beans. Peel and grate the sweet potato. Slice the leeks into rounds.
3. Prepare the stuffing: Heat a splash of oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Cook the onion and apples, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Once soft, remove half and add the potato into the pan and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Roughly chop the removed onion and apple. Combine with some of the herb and garlic butter and half of the breadcrumbs and almonds. Place into a small oven proof dish, cover with foil. Place into the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
4. Cook the mashed sweet potato: Place the grated sweet potato and a splash of water in another frying pan over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until the sweet potato is softened, add more water if needed. Add a third of the herb and garlic butter and return to the heat. Cook a further 5 minutes, stirring, to reduce and combine.
5. Cook the chicken: Place the chicken onto the cooked onion, apple and potatoes. Drizzle a little oil and sprinkle with salt. Place the chicken in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until cooked through. Spread the remaining butter onto the chicken. Return to the oven and cook for a further 5 minutes or until the chicken is browned. If you do not have an oven proof frying pan please place the vegetables and chicken into a baking tray.
6. Cook the leeks and beans: Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil. Blanch the beans and leeks for 2 minutes or until just tender. Strain through a colander.
7. To serve: Spoon the mash into a serving plate. Place the beans and leeks onto the serving plate and top with the remaining breadcrumbs and almonds. Place the stuffing container onto a heatproof trivet. Place the roast chicken on a large serving plate. Spoon the cooked vegetables onto another serving plate. Serve the dishes with the cranberry sauce.
PREPARE THE PIE:
1. Bake the pie at 160C fan forced for 15-20 minutes for small pies (singles & couples boxes) and 30-35 minutes for large pies (family & group boxes).
