There is nothing better than a warming and delicious chicken hot pot to tuck into at the end of the day.


  1. Slice the potatoes approx 3mm thick, put into a pan of boiling water and cook 5 minutes, Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole, add the onion and cook a few minutes until softened. Dust the chicken with flour and add to the pan. Fry on a high heat until starting to brown.
  3. Scatter over the garlic, carrots, mushrooms, toss together over the heat for 2 minutes, then add the sweet corn and thyme and pour over the stock. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Heat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6.
  5. Arrange the potatoes on top, overlapping them, work from the outside. Brush with melted butter then place in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes until the potatoes are golden and crisp.


  • It is cheaper to buy chicken thighs with the skin on and bone in, if you have time to skin and bone them, then choose these. You can use garlic butter to brush the potatoes if you want extra flavour.
