Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Rub the seasoning all over the chicken, working it into the flesh on the underside.
  2. Drizzle a little oil into a baking tray and add the chicken, garlic and potatoes. Drizzle over the 2 tbsp oil and toss the potatoes around to make sure they’re well covered.
  3. Roast for 35-40 minutes until the chicken thighs are crisp and the potatoes are golden and cooked through. Squeeze over the lemon juice, scatter over the herbs and serve with a green salad.
