  • 1 large whole chicken, about 1.8kg/4lb
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 tbsp grain mustard
  • 2 bay leaves
  • small bunch parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut the beans into halves or thirds and put them in the base of a dish or casserole that will fit the chicken easily. Halve the potatoes and stir them in, then put the chicken on top of the lot and snuggle it down amongst the veg.
