    Crispy Chicken With Garlicky Potatoes & Vine Tomatoes

    Try out all these tips and tricks to perfect your Sunday roast.

    There’s nothing quite like a hot crispy chicken dish with a side of garlicky potatoes. I’ve had a go at recreating their recipe to show you how you can rustle up a delicious treat for yourself, and make the most of your new appliance.

    Here's what you'll need...

    Olive oil
    1/2 a red onion
    125g baby new potatoes
    3 sprigs of fresh thyme
    1 x 120g free-range chicken breast, skin on
    2 cloves of garlic
    6 ripe cherry tomatoes, on the vine

    Here's how it's done...

    Step 1

    Preheat the microwave to 200ºC using the quick heat setting.

    Lightly grease the crisp plate with olive oil, place in the microwave, and switch to the dynamic crisp setting for 3 minutes to preheat.

    Step 2

    Peel and slice the onion into 6 wedges, and halve the potatoes lengthways, then place in a mixing bowl with the thyme sprigs, a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Toss to coat.

    Step 3

    Using the crisp handle, remove the crisp plate from the microwave and carefully add the veg mixture, making sure that the potatoes are cut-side down.

    Step 4

    Place back in the microwave and cook on the dynamic crisp setting for 3 minutes, then remove and give the plate a little shake to loosen.

    Step 5

    Drizzle the chicken with 1 teaspoon of oil, season with salt and pepper, then place skin-side down on the crisp plate, moving the veg to allow the skin to touch the crisp plate, if needed.

    Step 6

    Bash and scatter over the unpeeled garlic cloves, then cook for a further 3 minutes on the dynamic crisp setting, then remove.

    Step 7

    Add the tomatoes, flip the chicken skin-side up, and cook on the dynamic crisp setting for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is crisp, golden and cooked through.

    Step 8

    When the time’s up, plate up and tuck in. Delicious served with a seasonal salad.
