Tray baked chicken and veg

Do you like meals where you can shove it in the oven and go do stuff? I do! This is one of those, great for school nights because once it’s in the oven I can read with the kids, help with sight words, homework or whatever they need. Because the chicken is cooked in such a slow oven with lemon it is really moist, and the veges are scrumptious! This is a family winner dinner!

1 kg chicken thighs

2 capsicums, chopped rough

4 potatoes, largely diced

5 garlic cloves

2 swedes, chopped rough

1 lemon, halved

Salt and pepper

Handful of basil roughly chopped



Place all ingredients on a lined baking tray. Squeeze the lemon all over everything and then place on the tray too. Bake at 150 degrees Celcius for about 1 ½ hours. This way the chicken is slow cooked in the juice and is very tender, and the veges are just beautiful! Sprinkle with herbs when you take it out of the oven! I serve this with some baked pumpkin and salad on the side.
