1 x whole chicken cut into 4 pieces on the bone
800gm Kestrel potatoes, peeled diced into large portions
4 good handfuls of roquette
50gms Parmesan, shaved
1 x tub 200ml sour cream
2 x tbsp. horseradish cream*

Preheat oven to 180deg.
Boil potatoes until cooked approx. 15 mins.
While potatoes are cooking, place chicken pieces skin side up on roasting tray and roast for 30 mins.

Combine roquette and parmesan and dress with a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
