For dinner with a difference, bake potatoes, chicken and tomatoes in the same dish and finish with nutty pesto.

Preparation Time 15 minutes
Cooking Time 60 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

800g medium Golden Delight potatoes, peeled, quartered
80ml (1/3 cup) olive oil
8 chicken drumsticks
1 x 250g pkt cherry truss tomatoes
100g (1/2 cup) Wattle Valley Baby Spinach, Cashew & Parmesan dip


Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the potato in a large saucepan of salted water. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 minutes or until almost tender. Drain and return to the pan.

Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the potato and toss to combine. Transfer to a large baking dish.

Add the chicken to the dish. Drizzle over 1 tablespoon of remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. Add the tomatoes. Bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is golden.

Combine the dip and remaining oil in a small bowl. Divide the potato, chicken and tomatoes among serving plates. Drizzle over the dip mixture to serve.


If the dip is unavailable, use any other fresh or bottled basil pesto.

If medium Golden Delight potatoes are unavailable, use medium Lady Christl or Royal Blue potatoes.

Budget tip: Replace cherry truss tomatoes with 4 roma tomatoes, halved lengthways.
