- Bread Sauce
Peel potatoes. Boil in salted water for about 15 mins. Save some of the water that the potatoes cooked in for the gravy. Then drain potatoes and put to one side.
Measure out 1/2 pint of milk and pop an onion (peeled) in it for about an hour. Now remove the onion and heat it up with a knob of butter and salt and pepper (can add cloves). Grab some old white bread (3 slices) and blitz in a blender to make crumbs. Add to milk and butter. Stir in and put to one side - it is better when it has stood for a bit, don't know why but it is.
Oven at 200 degrees. Normal medium sized chicken takes 1.5 hours to cook. Add olive oil to roasting tray and heat up for a few minutes. Pop chicken on and add some olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper.
After an hour and a half, leave to stand for about 10 minutes.
Once the chicken is in, you add the potatoes to the chicken tin after half an hour (they take an hour to cook) and the sausages after 45 minutes (they take 45 minutes to cook).
Just chuck in the baking dish with the chicken. They take 45 minutes. If there is not space, do them in a separate dish with olive oil.
Carrots take 15-20 minutes
Spinach takes 5 minutes
Green beans take about 6-9 minutes
After the chicken is out, add the potato water you saved earlier to the tin the chicken was in and a slug of red wine. Heat through. Done.
