Bombay Chicken Pot Roast

Bombay Chicken Pot Roast recipe, eat well on universal credit

This was supposed to be a medium Chicken, but I came across two Poussin adorned with yellow stickers. We really like them when we can get hold of them as there’s considerably more meat to cavity ratio. Also they are really tender and take on flavours well.
