A delicious one pan roasted chicken with a sticky marinade. Simply serve with some greens.


Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl with the olive oil, pomegranate molasses, red onions, lemon, sumac and a good sprinkling of sea salt and ground black pepper. Toss everything together well and marinade for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
When ready to cook preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Tip the chicken and all the marinade ingredients out into a large roasting tin and add the potatoes. Place in the oven to roast for 45 minutes until the chicken has turned sticky and caramelised and the potatoes are cooked and golden.
Transfer to a large serving platter and scatter over the pomegranate seeds and flat leaf parsley. Serve with any pan juices drizzled over the top.
