Roast chicken, is one of the easiest and straightfoward meals, but this versions has a healthier kick and a different flavour, but still very easy and relatively quick to make.
I choose to use the tighs instead of a whole chicken, as they easier to prepare and quicker to cook. Shallots add lots of flavour, while the celeriac chips, add a nutty taste and much less sugars than potatoes. You can also serve it with our “Cauliflower and sage mash” as an healthier alternative to white potatoes.
