Roasted Chicken with summer vegetables

Chicken a la Ninou

Summer vegetables are appearing from the Riverford Farms in Spain , last weekend I treated them to homemade pasta , as the summer vegetables begin to glut this chicken dish is an excellent way of cooking lots of vegetables , it also works with sausages.

Roasted Vegetables

I got this recipe from a stylish french lady a good few years ago, not  only do you get a chicken that sauces the vegetables making a delicious gravy. Once you have stuffed yourself with plenty of chicken and vegetables any leftover vegetable and chicken can be frozen  heated it through with passata or fresh tomatoes in season gives rich pasta sauce for the perfect ready meal .

I served it with some polenta my first time using it like Anne Kitchen I have had some in my cupboard for a while check out her lovely Mediterranean Vegetable Polenta Cakes . As an accompaniment I cooked simply cooked as instructed stirring in boiling water and adding a little salt and pepper
