Tips & Hints:

  • If you have a larger or smaller chicken, please adjust cooking time accordingly until chicken is cooked through. You can check by piercing the chicken thigh near the bone, if the juices run clear, the chicken is cooked
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, transfer chicken and potatoes to a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Combine 2 teaspoons cornflour and 2 tablespoons of water in a jug and add to the creamy pan juices. Stir over medium heat until sauce thickens
