There’s no racing about and getting in a flap with this roast dinner—everything you need is cooked in one pan. If you are lucky enough to have any leftovers, then you really must try the Roast Chicken Potpie recipe.


  • 4-pound free-range or organic chicken
  • 3 tablespoons butter, soft


  1. Heat the oven to 315°F.
  2. Put the chicken in a large roasting pan and smear the butter over the chicken and the bottom of the pan. Put the vegetables, garlic and herbs around the chicken. Pour ½ cup of the stock and the wine over. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Cov
