potatoes, chicken legs, milk, butter, oil, soy sauce, honey, tomato puree, green beans
30 minutes + marinade
This recipe is just what you are looking for if you want something cheap, easy and oh my word-delicious. Marinating meat is a great way to make a cheaper cut, such a chicken legs, really flavoursome, if you’re organised this can be done before heading out for the day and dinner is done within half an hour of walking in the door.
Start by marinating 4 chicken legs in a glug of oil, 1 tsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of tomato puree and a sprinkle of chilli flakes. Ideally allow to marinate overnight, but 3-4 hours will do. Then put the chicken in the oven with the marinade at 200c for 30 minutes turning halfway through. While the chicken is cooking boil 2 peeled medium-large potatoes until soft, then drain and mash with a knob butter, a splash of milk and season with salt and pepper. Serve with anything green that is lurking in the fridge. Enjoy!
