Dh has just presented me with some lovely roast chicken thighs with salad and diced potatoes.

I scoffed the lot.

He then asked what I thought of the potatoes. ..he stuck the potatoes in with the raw chicken thighs to roast!

Is this actually ok?? Surely the potatoes have roasted in raw chicken juice whilst the chicken cooks shock

I think it's fine but I'm vegetarian so probably not much good at answering this!

rootypig Tue 29-Jul-14 17:14:52

What on earth...

Was the chicken cooked? Then whatever chickenyness was on or in the potatoes is also cooked.

You nana. grin

If they've been roasted, surely that's not an issue.

callamia Tue 29-Jul-14 17:15:23

It's fine - it's all cooked. Don't people often do veg around a joint of meat for roast dinner?

Poppytime Tue 29-Jul-14 17:15:25

But presumably they both were fully cooked and therefore reached a temperature whereby all bugs were killed? Otherwise even eating the chicken alone wouldn't have been a good idea...I think you will live!

I think that's ok, I often roast potatoes and raw chicken when I make a tray bake , never considered it a problem.

We're still alive, yay! wink

SenatusPopulusqueRomanorum Tue 29-Jul-14 17:16:25

What is wrong with that? The chicken thighs were raw chicken and you ate them too!

Umm I don't get it.

The raw potatoes and chicken was put I a tray. Then the whole lot roasted. Thus cooking it all.

Am I missing something or are you being extrodinarily dense grin

Of course it's all right - that's how a traditional roast is done, and very nice it is too. If the chicken was cooked then so are the potatoes. smile

Surely the potatoes have roasted in raw chicken juice whilst the chicken cooks

How would the juice stay raw?

Have you actually thought about this?

Morethanalittlebitconfused Tue 29-Jul-14 17:19:49

I'm laughing here you twit. Roasting spuds with chicken is totally normal! As long as the chicken is cooked you're fine

NatashaBee Tue 29-Jul-14 17:20:32

I've read of people on here throwing all the veg onto the same roasting tray as a chicken/meat joint. Can't see how it would be a problem.

fuzzpig Tue 29-Jul-14 17:21:36

Awww <ruffles hair> grin

Nah seriously it's fine, totally normal way to cook spuds, they taste better that way IMO! smile

NorwaySpruce Tue 29-Jul-14 17:22:00

But it will all have been cooked - chicken, potatoes & juices confused

lettertoherms Tue 29-Jul-14 17:25:04

Haha! The potatoes have also cooked, and the chicken juice in them.

Unless maybe he dipped the potatoes in the roasting pan with the raw chicken and fished them out again before putting it in the oven? grin

KnackeredMuchly Tue 29-Jul-14 17:25:15

What rootypig says in the same manner I would!

BreadForBrains Tue 29-Jul-14 17:25:18

I can't believe this is a serious question confused

WhereTheWildlingsAre Tue 29-Jul-14 17:26:57

I do this all the time. Perfectly ok!

Did they taste nice?

Gileswithachainsaw Tue 29-Jul-14 17:27:20

Did he drain off all the raw chicken juices then pour over the cooked potatoeS?

That's the only way it would be an issue.

It's usually the done thing to roast potatoes under the meat

Lottiedoubtie Tue 29-Jul-14 17:28:11

^ what they said, but particularly this bit-

How would the juice stay raw?

Also, I've got to ask, if you believe the 'juice' is raw... How do you make your gravy shock

YoniMitchell Tue 29-Jul-14 17:28:17

<snigger> bless you MagnificentMalificent grin

msrisotto Tue 29-Jul-14 17:29:05

This is a completely standard way of cooking a roast dinner.

AdoraBell Tue 29-Jul-14 17:29:06

OP if the oven was hot enough to roast the spuds and, erm cook the chicken, I'd say you are safe is that you DD1? grin
