Recipe: Spiced Chilli Lemon Chicken with Potato Wedges

This is a nice relaxed saturday lunch i made for me and my boyfriend over the weekend- it was really using what we had in the fridge really, but i fancied something a little bit spicy, a little bit healthy, but filling- and this fitted the bill. The recipe is for two but it is very easily multiplied.

Spiced Chilli Lemon Chicken, with potato wedges (serves 2)

1 tsp Lazy red chillies in white wine vinegar
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp paprika
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp ginger paste
Juice of ½ a lemon
½ tsp sugar
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
Salt and pepper
3 chicken breasts

4 medium sized maris piper potatoes, sliced into wedges
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried rosemary
Salt and pepper

1. Mix together the chillies, garam masala, paprika, garlic, ginger, lemon, sugar and oil. Add the chicken, coat it in the marinade, and then marinate for a minimum 30 minutes (maximum 24 hours).
2.Preheat the oven to 180C. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, and boil the potato wedges for 6 minutes. Drain and add the parboiled potatoes into a roasting tray, with the olive oil, rosemary and plenty of salt and pepper. Toss to coat, and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, bake the marinated chicken breasts (with the marinade) in the oven for 30 minutes. Once cooked remove chicken and potato wedges from the oven, and serve- with the remaining marinade poured over the chicken breasts, acting as a sauce.
