  • Pot roasted chicken with paprika, shallots and potatoes
    on Sep 17, 2010
    Now this is one tasty dish and criminally easy. Pot roasting really does give you the best of both worlds. You get a beautifully moist chicken with nicely browned skin. The most important aspect for me though is you keep all of the flavour from the c...
