Roast chicken with apples and potatoes

roast-chicken-with-apples-and-potatoes Today I share with you a chicken recipe that my mother usually prepares and that I love, a roast chicken with apples and potatoes. It is a very simple recipe, but I love the contrast of the chicken with the sweetness of the roasted apple.

The roasting time of the chicken will depend on its size, but in principle with 40 minutes of cooking a medium-sized chicken should be done.

My mother likes to poach the potatoes with a little onion in a pan before adding them to the chicken so she doesn't have to add excess liquid to the chicken pan and makes sure they are well done.

      I'm glad you liked it. Prunes are also a great option to add, because they also add sweetness!
