I have a handful of 'go-to' dishes when I am stuck for ideas or if I have little time to prep for a meal and this 'All-in-one Mediterranean Chicken' meal is one of them. Super quick and easy to prepare and taste absolutely delicious too. You simply wash, chop and bung all the ingredients onto a tray and bake. I never get bored of this meal. The succulent juices from the chicken mixed up with the vegetables at the bottom - just delicious!
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Chicken thighs and drumsticks
1kg baby new potatoes
1 large onion, diced
4 garlic cloves
2 courgettes, washed, chopped and diced into large chunks
3 carrots, washed, chopped and diced into large chunks
2 fresh tomatoes, washed, chopped and diced into large chunks
2tsp mixed herbs
Turn oven onto 180 degrees.
Mix all the chopped vegetables, potatoes, garlic and 1 tsp of the mixed herbs with olive oil (season with salt and pepper if you wish).
Place onto an oven dish and cook for 15 minutes.
In a separate bowl, drizzle a little olive oil over the chicken along with the remainder of the mixed herbs and squeeze some lemon juice over the chicken (season with salt and pepper if you wish).
Place the chicken thighs and/or drumsticks on top of the vegetables that are roasting in the oven and roast for another 30 minutes until chicken and vegetables are cooked
