This isn’t really a recipe as such, but rather a quick and easy way to get a meal on the table for crowd. I usually have chicken thighs or drumsticks in the freezer and find them a great standby for last
This can also be cooked on a covered barbecue – for minimal clean use a large aluminium foil dish or line a large baking dish with a
double layer of foil.
For those who might need to consider those who don’t eat chicken, cook some of the vegetable mixture in a separate roasting pan and towards the end of the cooking time, scatter with some feta cheese.
Chicken, Potato & Five Veg
You could add a salad of mixed leaves on the side and some crusty bread to mop up the juices, if you wish.
Use whatever combination of vegetables that are in-season and those which you and your family and friends enjoy the most.
potatoes – allow 1 medium potato per serve
red onions – allow 1 large onion per 2-3 serves

1 Preheat oven to 200°C.
2 Choose a baking dish that will accommodate the quantity of vegetables you have in a single layer. Chop vegetables into chucks of about the same size. Place vegetables in baking dish, drizzle with
olive oil and season with a good grind of salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Spread vegetables out in an even single layer.
