One dish I seem to make much more on a regular basis is pan roasted chicken.
This is an easy and quicker dish than a simple roast chicken in many ways.
Start off with some chicken, either joint a whole chicken, or buy some thighs and legs (they have more flavour).
Place them in a pan with onions, pepper, pancetta, mushrooms, cubes of bread, herbs and a good dash of olive oil.
You can add other things as well such as sweet potato, parsnip, partially cooked potato, tomatoes, sausages and courgettes if you so wish.
Roast in a hot oven for about thirty to forty minutes.
The bread is a key as this will soak up the wonderful juices.
