5 one pot wonders to save you washing up

These easy family meals cook in a single plan and are inspired by flavours from around the globe.

From a Mediterranean-inspired baked balsamic chicken to a root vegetable pea pilaf - our recipes are sure to pack a flavour punch!

Here's how to make a mighty masterpiece any night of the week...and without the washing up.

Baked balsamic chicken & Mediterranean veg

It might only be February, but with our baked balsamic chicken and Mediterranean veg you can have a taste of sunshine all year around. This dish is flavoured with thyme, honey and a glug of balsamic glaze. For an extra surprise, we've cut a pocket in the chicken and filled it with sun-dried tomatoes and basil. Just look at it in all its glory - sunshine on a plate!

Slow-cooker Mexican corn chowder

This creamy chowder comes with a kick of chilli heat and smoky chipotle. The best thing about this pot of comfort - apart from the taste - is that you can cook it in your slow cooker. Simply add in some onions, celery, red pepper, yellow pepper, potatoes, sweetcorn and borlotti beans. Then season with a sprinkle of cumin, a spoonful of chipotle paste, some jalapenos, a garlic clove and stock. Then, about 10 minutes before you're ready to serve, stir in some single cream. 

Root vegetable & pea pilaf

Turmeric gives this Indian-inspired dish its wonderful golden colour, while cinnamon and cardamom add fragrance and warmth. We've opted for a meat-free meal using just carrots, parsnips and peas to bulk it out but for carnivores, you could always add in your preferred meat.

French-style beef casserole

This rich, meaty recipe is the epitome of comfort food. We've added smoked bacon into ours, with garlic, Chantenay carrots and button mushrooms and flavoured the one-pot wonder with some thyme, stock and red wine. It's sure to warm you from the inside out! And, if you don't eat it all in one go, those flavours will mature and taste even better the next day.

Chorizo & seafood jambalaya

We’ve given the Cajun classic a Spanish paella-style twist by adding in some chorizo and switching meat for seafood in our jambalaya. We think it works perfectly. Don't forget to serve your pot with a few slices of lemon to help add a zingy touch.
