Tray-Baked Chicken with Spiced Indian Potatoes | Jamie Oliver

Hi guys hope you’re well! We’re going to make
the most beautiful tray baked chicken with Indian spices and veges. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
It feels naughty but it’s really really healthy. It’s 3 of your 5 fruit and veg a day. It’s
really affordable and it’s a great dish you can get in 1 tray, whack in the oven, go and
do something for 40 minutes and then you’ve got a feast to feed the family. Right, so
it’s a really nice sharable dish. Pan on, kettle boiling water. Hack up some potatoes
about an inch diced. So into a tray we’re going to go in with olive oil. About 1 and
a half tablespoons. We’re going to go in with the mustard seeds and the curry leaves okay.
And I’ll just hold on the turmeric to start with. So along with all these lovely fresh
ingredients we want fragrance. Those amazing flavours of India. I’m going to use some ginger
here and get it fine. You’re going to get heat from that because ginger is hot. We’re
going to put in the ginger. You can move it around. Now I’ll get that turmeric in but
I didn’t want it to burn earlier. So we’ve got like 2 teaspoons of turmeric. So I’m going
to use 4 cloves of garlic on a gentle heat and we’re just bringing out the flavours of
all those things. Chicken thigh, I’m going to go skin on and I’m just going to have 1
nice big thigh per portion in there. So the potatoes here and I’m just going to let these
steam. They’ve been cooking for about 5 minutes now. So they’re tender. Next up all we’re
going to do is just chop veg, So roughly we’re going to slice up the veg into about 1 inch
chunks and what we can do is start just adding this as we’re prepping this right. So we’ve
got a lovely orange pepper here, we’ll have a red pepper as well. Full of lovely vitamins
and of course when they roast they go sweet. Onion, always in the base of so many dishes.
So I’m just going to roughly chop. I’m adding chilli now and this spice kind of combination
here is really mild. It’s spicy but it’s not hot. We’ve got some beautiful tomatoes, so
in we go. A lovely recipe, a nice start middle and end. We’re going to season it with some
salt and pepper. Last but not least, go in with the potatoes. You can imagine how tasty
this is going to be right. And then if we go and get our chicken you know, we’ve already
started frying that chicken skin. The bonus of this dish of course is that everything
just flavours eachother, Mix that around, amazing colours. You just know it’s going
to be good for you. Put the chicken on top so that is now going to bake in the oven for
about 45 minutes okay. So while that’s cooking I want to show you how to make a super quick
delicious mint, chilli and ginger yoghurt. Come over here and have a look at this. Simply
get a regular bunch of mint which is normally about that size. Just rip the head off okay.
We’re going to go in with about 150mls of good quality yoghurt and then we’re going
to go in with some chilli. We want a bit of heat there. We’re going to break up about
half a chilli is perfect. In with a tiny little piece of ginger and then a nice little pinch
of salt. Whizz that up, beautiful flavour, so fragrant. We’re going to squeeze in the
juice of about half a lemon there. And there you go. That’s the yoghurt sauce, time to
plate up our beautiful tray bake and look at that. Amazing colours, beautiful colours
almost looks like autumn, you’ve got the crispy skin here. I actually love to have like a
simple, a nice simple salad, you know just a baby spinach salad. I’ll use this, it’s
all washed and ready to go. We’ll go in with a couple of spoons of our lovely dressing.
Nice and simple, really nice contrast of colours. Little one for me, oh by the way! If you’re
wondering why I’m dressed up like this I’m going to parents evening tonight at school
so I’ve got to dress up and be a bit more smarter and responsible. You know now I’ve
got slightly older kids, I still want to keep an eye on what they’re eating because I’ll
always be their dad. But at the same time it’s quite nice for them to kind of help themselves.
Loads of veg, controlled sat fats, good quality meat, beautiful spices. We can finish it all
off with some coriander, you know you can put that yoghurt just in and around the lovely
roasted veges and the chicken and it works so well. Now let’s get a little fork and have
a little try. What we got here, a bit of potato, mmm. Nice delicate spices, you know the aubergines
are kind of soft but kind of spongey, really really good. And then excuse the knife, really
really good. Crispy skin, love it. This recipe is actually on the front cover of Jamie magazine,
if you haven’t seen my magazine this is in about 15 different countries around the world.

like that. Check it out its a beautiful beautiful mag. Until next time ciao, take care. And
wish me luck, at parent’s evening…

  3. kaaatjeful says:

    Why not mix the herbs for the raita first and then carefully fold them in with the yoghurt, and so keep the lovely thickness of the yoghurt….

  4. SC guy says:

    Raita is usually chunky

  5. Cappy says:

  6. Francesc Pruneda says:

    1. I can not eat mint, any other herb or spice to combine the souce?
    2. Can you recommend a type of wine for this recipe?

  10. emigrate says:

    I just saw Jamie in NY when he went to help feed people with a person who does this daily. Jamie got a bit miffed when a drunken homeless guy touched one of the items and he said no you take the one you touched. However Jamie plays with his hair, keeps liking his fingers and its OK then Jamie? If you like your own fingers, double dip, use the same spoon to taste and re-tastes with same fingers. In the same episode he take the piss out Indians. White man speak with fork tongue, and tastes with same finger. Then he predominately cooks Indian food!

  11. shan rai says:

  20. farnaaz khan says:

    This video is "absolutely gorgeous" <—- my new phrase from my FAVOURITE cook! Jamie, your wink is the cutest!

  21. Arleen Emerson says:

    That wink tho at 4:15 😂 Food looks awesome as usual!

  22. The LOL Factory says:

    Haha Jamie rocking the James Martin look

  23. Alan Bright says:

    Too much mustard seeds. That will make dish bitter. Also you need to wait till they crackle. That's when they become sweetish and pungent.. I would also add a pinch of Garam masala

  24. Gabriel Ch says:

    Stop make contact with your damn ring and food

  25. Urooj fatima says:

    u mean amazing flavors of south Asia coz pakistan also has all those spices

  26. Avinash Garlapati says:

    You have to put aubergine immediately in salt water otherwise it gives bitter taste to the dish

  27. deep blue says:

  32. Cheryl Smith says:


  33. ali ashfaque says:

    Please help is this possible to cook this in an multicooker (I am living in a dorm with no ovens) my multicooker has roasting options

  34. Jerry Shea says:

    Really nice meal..Great Job..

  35. Ryan Burgess says:

    "Just rip the head off"

  36. Kush Kohli says:

    Might be a trivial question, can you cook on a tray with a hot plate? Thought it could only be used in the oven so was surprised he used it on a gas hob. So if I have a hot plate can I still do this?

  37. Matt Wisdom says:

    I always do this with sweet potato. Doesn't need the par-boil and works so well with those indian flavours.

  38. giacomo bjerregaard says:

    Here's the recipe for the main dish

    800g potatoes

    2 thumb sized pieces of ginger
    Chicken thighs with skin(per serving)
    2 peppers(orange&red)
    Red and green chill
    4 tomatoes


  39. Azwina Azman says:

    I stopped searching for " healthy food recipes" on youtube. They are usually boring and bland . Now i just watch you! Thank you!!

  40. Bendangzulu Pongen says:

    curry leaves are good but don't use too much or often.

  41. Fernando Marquez says:

    How is ginger hot lol

  42. Fluffy Bunny says:

    Made it ! Was delicious

  43. Shayak Munshi says:

    This isn't any close to Indian cooking so your recipe is a disaster and specially who eats raw spinach with the yogurt sauce?? It was all watery and very pathetic,it's an insult to Indian form of cooking.We don't put aubergine in chicken!! Total Crap and mess!!

  44. victor noagbodji says:

    i have watched many chefs on yt (even Gordon) but but Jamie has that charm that no other people have : ) love to watch him cook so much : )

  45. brumsgrub says:

  46. arlene kelaart says:

    Cooked this this evening…I did not make the mint sauce.. nevertheless it was DELICIOUS. Thanks Jamie.

  47. Jack 'The Lad' Stevens says:

    These recepies are quick if you can chop and peel at the speed of a chef, otherwise it takes time I've found.

  73. Vanya Ojha says:

  78. gal levin says:

    Hi jamie! Queation- Can I put two trays of of chicken in the oven, thus making twice the amount, and crank up the heat to the max, instead of 190°, as Jamie said in the video?

  79. Swati Pai says:

    Your kids are lucky to have a dad like you

  80. Baby Barrister says:

  82. RON says:

    Nice but that’s not Indian dish

  83. ibrahimuzair08 says:

    that looks yum..hungry now

  84. 8 Atheist says:

    He's a good lad

  85. Mark Norville says:

    What a complete prat. You should wash all salad before eating. It has been in a plastic bag for God knows how long, and you do not know what the food hygiene is of the person that packed it, or machine if done in bulk. You should also really soak pre packed salads so that it makes it moist once more. If you look at most salads they come from Spain. Spain is a big Country and hot, so they are picked, possibly packed in Spain,transported via road, kept in warehouses for weeks before hitting the supermarket shelves. No wonder why you went BANKRUPT!!!

  86. Perda De Peso Dietitian says:

    Thank you for a wonderful picture

  87. Наталья Фролова says:

    Oliver is the only God of Cooking in the world! Unsurpassed!

  88. TheLoveMaker232 says:

    What the hell is full whack for an oven?

  89. jeffstation70 says:

    That's piece of ginger, not peice. 😝

  90. vilko skorlich says:

    Indian-Style Potatoes– NOT INDIAN!! native to the America!

  91. squange20 says:

    I’ve watched Jamie’s videos and tried his foolproof recipes over the years. I think he’s the best. It’s sad that you lost a lot recently, but your videos surely live on.

  92. Jonathan Hollis says:

    Have just made this and came out really really well. Very easy and so much flavour! I would recommend that folks prepare all the veg etc first as i did panic a bit on the timing but turned out really great all the same. Thank you Jamie!

  93. Hanifa says:

    I wouldnt put ginger in yoghurt sauce. Mint chilli and salt and then chopped cucumber after blending.

  94. mas bro says:

    Ramsay will salt everything. 😂

  95. ChipZilla69 says:

    Well i bought the ingredients, let's see how this goes. Jamie's recipes are the best.

  96. Hamza Muswi says:

    Way way too much mustard

  97. Md Anwar says:

    Can you teach me how to cook? I am from Bangladesh, I am a University Teacher, I teach English Literature, Can you keep me with you and teach me how to cook. You know you are the most celebrated all around the world, may be you can think of me as a charity .. help me go there

  98. Dan Gleebles says:

    Go in

  99. K L says:

    It's rather hard to find anything but skinless, boneless chicken thighs where I live. So going to make this with them and hope it comes out just as good.
