Hunter's chicken with herby potato wedges

A proper crowd-pleasing family, comfort-food dinner that’s all cooked in one tray. Using ingredients that pack in loads of flavour – like Cook With M&S herby potatoes and sticky barbecue sauce – means this dish gives you some serious taste bang for your buck.” chef Chris Baber

Cut the red onions into 6 wedges.


  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6. Add the potatoes and onions to a baking dish. Stir together 2 tbsp of the barbecue sauce with the tinned tomatoes, and pour it over the veg, stirring so everything is coated.
  2. 2 Score the chicken with a knife and sprinkle over the smoked paprika along with some salt and pepper. Place the chicken on top of the potatoes, spoon the remaining barbecue sauce over the chicken, and bake for 20 minutes, covered with foil.
  3. 3 Remove from the oven and top each breast with 25g cheddar and a slice of Parma ham.
  4. 4 Bake for a further 15 minutes, without the foil, until the chicken is cooked through and the ham is crispy. Finish with a scattering of fresh parsley.

    Awful 😭

  • Lulu

    Raw potatoes and missing ingredients. Pretty useless recipe!

  • Joe

    Actually it tastes ok but the sauce is appalling. Potatoes are fine and so is chicken 😐😧

  • Lesley Hunter

    As previously mentioned ( up to 3 months ago) no barbecue sauce is mentioned in the ingredients list. Come on M&S you’ve had plenty of time to correct, get your act together .

    Don’t forget the BBQ Sauce. I found this was a good recipe and a nice BBQ sauce alone, however the first time I made it with Bullseye Original BBQ Sauce which gave it a stronger BBQ flavour. The M&S BBQ Sauce is delicate and nice as a sauce on meat, however I found the BBQ flavour did not come through for the Hunters Chicken once mixed with the tomatoes.

    The BBQ sauce is missing from the ingredients list. Pretty annoying when you come to cook it. Also method is hard to read on a mobile device.
