Chicken and Veggie tray bake

The taste of this dish will send your mind wandering to the Mediterranean coast, at least that’s where my mind went to while eating this. Paired with a crisp glass of rosé you can’t go wrong. Full of flavour and veg, it’s healthy, easy and delicious.

Cooking Instructions

Mix all of your marinade ingredients together and coat the chicken. Place chicken back in the fridge while you prep all of your veggies. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Place your sliced sweet potato, red onion, capsicum, eggplant and garlic in a large oven proof dish and toss with 1 Tblspn of olive oil. Then place your marinated chicken thighs on top and place in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and take chicken off and set aside for a minute. Add in your feta, olives and sundried  tomatoes carefully stir through without burning yourself. Place your chicken back on top and arrange your vine or cherry tomatoes around your dish. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Place back into the oven for a further 20 minutes or until chicken is golden and cooked through and veggies are soft. Season with salt and pepper and top with fresh basil leaves to serve.
