Jamie’s Sweet Chicken Surprise

Jamie’s Sweet Chicken Surprise. The Eldest Lad found this recipe online and made a request it, so when I saw the chicken legs on a yellow sticker at the supermarket it seemed like a great idea to attempt it. It comes direct from Jamie Oliver’s 5 ingredient website and was super easy to prepare and cook.

Ingredients
  

Jamie's Sweet Chicken Surprise

  • 4 Chicken Legs
  • 500 g Mixed seedless grapes
  • 1 Bulb Garlic
  • 150 ml Red Vermouth
  • 1 Handul Tarrogan

Instructions
 

Jamie's Sweet Chicken Surprise

  • Problem number one, the supermarket had run out of red vermouth, so a quick google and I discovered that red wine vinegar (1 part) and water (3 parts) apparently make a good substitute. Problem number two, I don’t own a saucepan that can be chucked in the oven like Jamie, so a roasting tin would have to do!
    So, feeling rather productive and problem solvey, I heated some oil in my roasting tin over the hob and put the chicken in skin side down to crisp up, Oh! I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper first.
    Whilst doing this (still feeling productive and doing chefy-style two things at once) I sorted the garlic out. Leaving it unpeeled I squashed it with my hand. I turned the chicken and chucked in the garlic and cooked for a few minutes whilst picking the grapes.
    Finally, I Chucked the grapes and vermouth (substitute) into the pan and put it all in an oven heated to 180 degrees for 50 minutes. Once cooked I chucked some tarragon over it to serve.
    I decided to serve it with roasted baby potatoes, which I parboiled for about 5/6 minutes and chucked in the oven for about 30 minutes or so.
