RECIPE OVERVIEW

The sweet flavour of ClemenGolds is perfect when combined with mild spices like Chinese five-spice, which is often described as a blend of spices with a sweeter aroma. In this recipe thick slices of ClemenGold in the skin are roasted with the chicken, sweet potatoes and leeks, resulting in a comforting meal. Other citrus fruit can become bitter when roasted for too long, but the slices of ClemenGold add a fantastic flavour to the dish – eat a slice of roasted ClemenGold with the skin on and experience an explosion of flavours.
