Roasted jerk chicken and vegetables - recipe

Chicken and potato. What a lovely and versatile combo. Probably two ingredients that I use the most in the kitchen. I wanted to give this recipe a twist so I used the Flava It Jamaican jerk spice mix. Great taste but somewhat spicy for my taste buds.

Chicken pieces
3 big potatoes, thick slices
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
3 carrots, sliced lengthwise
1/3 Jamaican jerk spice mix

1. Wash and slice the vegetables and place them in a enamel lidded roasting tin. This tin will be one of your best buys as it roasts to perfection, so invest in one. Found in Robert Dyas.

2. Wash the chicken pieces, could be breast, wings or drumsticks, maybe a mixture of all three. Place them on top of the vegetables in the roasting tin and add an even coat of the jerk mix on the ingredients. Make sure the chicken has an even coat.

3. Roast in the oven for about 1,5 hours or until brown and has that lovely colour, at 235 degrees.
Serve as is or with rice.
