creole chicken and roast potatoes



1. Pre-heat oven to 190 degress celsius.

2. After scoreing (making incisions across the skin of the chicken) mix YIAH Balsamic Vinegar, honey and YIAH Louisianna Creole together in a bowl and with your hands massage into the chicken.

3. In a deep baking dish or roasting pan place chicken and potatoes, season.Sprinkle with olive oil and pour in the water. Cover in foil for the first 35 mins.

4. In the last 15 minutes of cooking, take off foil so you get a nice caramelisation.

5. Take out after that time or at which time the potatoes and chicken are cooked.

6. Enjoy with a Garden salad.

Moroccan Marrakesh Bazaar Chicken


  • 2  tsp YIAH Moroccan Marakesh Bazaar Spice Blend
  • 1/2 tsp  YIAH Louisiana Creole Dip Mix
  • 2 large potatoes cut into half then half again
  • 2 large carrots cut into approx. 3 cm pieces
  • 1 small set of potatoes cut into 4 cm pieces
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tsp olive oil ( I used Bertolli Classico)
  • 600g chicken breast, sliced
  • 1 cup peas
  • ( 1 cup water extra if needed during the course of cooking)


1. Put 1 tsp oil in a deep saucepan (30cm) on medium heat and cook chicken until golden in 2 batches. Set aside.

2. Add the remaining oil, and cook onion (add salt) on low heat (about 5 minutes) until soft. Add YIAH Moroccan Marakesh Bazaar Spice and YIAH Louisiana Creole Dip Mix. Stir until aromatic for 1 minute.

3. Add vegetables and chicken. Stir in crushed tomatoes and stock. Stir until starting to bowl. Leave on a simmer and cover with a lid. Simmer for 45 minutes or until veggies are cooked, stirring occasionally and adding the water if needed.

Note: This meal is lovely and aromatic and one of my favourites as it is so easy.
