A Roast For One

Well I appreciate that title might sound rather sad, but today I’m here to share with you how you can cook yourself a roast dinner with all the trimmings, without have tonnes of leftovers!


I actually made this for Rachel and myself the night before her birthday, and I have decided to make it a Sunday tradition here in the flat by myself.



  • oil or fry-light
  • half an onion, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • half a leek, sliced
  • 125g potato, cut into halves or quarters
  • rosemary
  • thyme
  • chicken breast
  • 75ml chicken stock
  • Stuffing mix
  • Bisto granules



  1. Preheat your oven to 200C, or 180C if using a fan oven.
  2. Cook the stuffing mix according to the packet.
  3. Grease a roasting tin or pyrex dish with your oil or fry-light.
  4. Mix the potato, onion, leek, carrots, and herbs in more oil or spray with fry-light.
  5. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Nestle the chicken breast into the middle of the vegetables and cook for 15 minutes.
  7. Pour your stock over the chicken and vegetables and return to the oven for 5 more minutes.
  8. Make your gravy according to the packaging.


Serve as it is, or add a yorkshire pudding or more vegetables! There aren’t too many dishes from this either, which is just perfect.


Do you have any traditions you like to uphold?

  1. Haha unfortunately didn’t have any in the freezer, and didn’t have ingredients to make them! Plus I’m not sure how weight watcher friendly they would be 🙈

  2. Sometimes the key to leftovers is to transform them into something different. Roast and veggies could become a stew or a soup. Leftover rice can be fried rice or rice pudding. Leftovers are indeed awesome.
