This recipe is my take on one I had seen the the Good Food magazine April 2010. A really easy and satisfying one pan dish.
6 x Chicken thighs / drumsticks - skin on
Enough new potatoes for two - cut in half
200g Baby Plum Tomatoes
4 Banana Shallots, peeled and left whole
Soft Cheese with garlic and Herbs
Dried Thyme (fresh would be better)
Gently peel the skin away from the meat and push a tea spoon or so of soft cheese under the skin and massage into place on all the chicken pieces.
Pop them into a roasting tin add the potatoes, tomatoes and shallots to the tin.
Drizzle with a little oil and season well. Sprinkle over a nice large pinch of thyme.
Put in oven at 180oc for 40 minutes.
The dish came out gloriously crispy on the skin with a lovely ready made sauce from the cooking juices and melted cheese. Very yummy.
