Andy Waters' simple chicken and vegetable bake recipe makes a perfect half term dinner. The mix of vegetables, sweet maple syrup and tender chicken breasts will go down a treat with the little ones. Poaching chicken is a lot healthier than frying, which makes this recipe even more child-friendly.
Andy Waters helped put the Midlands on the gastronomic map when he won a Michelin star in 2003 for Edmunds. The award came within six months of opening and the restaurant went on to be named restaurant of the year by Harden's Guide.
