Roast Chicken with Pumpkin Mash

by Lisa K. on Tue, January 31, 2017

Chicken and beef bacon are old best friends. In this recipe, the bacon is wrapped around the chicken breast to keep it moist and juicy. It is simple to prepare and together with the lush pumpkin mash, it is ultimate comfort food for a busy weekday, or a lazy weekend.

Some comfort food after a long day...

You can sprinkle on some freshly chopped woody herbs or Cajun spice on the chicken breast to give it an extra lift.

    Salt & Pepper

    200g potatoes
    200g pumpkin
    2 tbsp butter

1. Put a medium sized pot of water on the stove with the lid on, turn on high heat. Switch on the oven and set the temperature to 190 degrees Celsius.
