One pot chicken and other spring recipes


One pot chicken

It would be so easy to share a chocolatey recipe when Easter is just a few days away, don’t think I wasn’t tempted,  but I thought we may all be sick of it by next week and craving something fresh, tasty and relatively healthy. Who am I kidding? Anyhow, I am a huge fan of one pot meals; throw the ingredients into a pan or baking tray, cook, and voila you have a great meal, minimal preparation and barely any washing up. This one pot chicken is full of flavour, using lots of spring herbs and is perfect for spring evenings as it is comforting but not quite as heavy as a casserole.


  • 500g baby new potatoes
  • 300g chantenay carrots or carrots peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • lots of fresh parsley
  • lots of fresh coriander
  • lots of fresh thyme
  • whole bulb of garlic separated
  • 8 chicken thighs or 4 breasts
  • 1 lemon
  • 200ml chicken stock or 100ml white wine & 100ml chicken stock


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC/gas mark 6
  2. Halve the potatoes and toss in the roasting tin with 1 tbsp of olive oil
  3. Add the carrots, chopped parsley, sprigs of thyme and the garlic cloves to the tin
  4. Place the chicken on top of the potatoes and carrots
  5. Slice the lemon and add to the tin
  6. Drizzle olive oil over the contents of the tin and then add the stock and wine, if using
  7. Roast for approximately 45 minutes or until the potatoes and chicken are cooked

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
