  • 1 large rectangular baking dish
  • Sharp knife
  • Citrus juicer
  • zester


  • 500 g (2 large) skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary (chopped)
  • 500 g (1.1lb) potatoes (cut into wedges)
  • 2 lemons (one for zest and juice, one cut into wedges)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to season
  • 250 g (1/2 lb) cherry tomatoes (individual or on truss)
  • 2 Tablespoons roughly chopped fresh parsley to garnish


  • Preheat your oven to hot - 220C / 425F.
  • Slice chicken breasts in half horizontally with a sharp knife to make 2 fillets from each breast.
  • Place the chicken and potato wedges in a non-stick ceramic medium baking dish.
  • Coat the chicken and potatoes with the olive oil, honey, zest of one lemon and rosemary. Use a zester to add the lemon zest straight to the dish. Then halve the zested lemon to use for juice using a citrus press and set aside.
  • Cut the second lemon into wedges and add wedges to the dish amongst the chicken and potatoes. Season with a little salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add 1/2 cup of lemon juice to the dish and add the cherry tomatoes on top. Either add the tomatoes individually, or place a whole truss on the top of the chicken. Bake for a further 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, scatter the chopped parsley over the dish and serve.


This dish goes well with simple steamed asparagus or green beans as a side dish.
