This makes a perfect weeknight dinner, as it doesn’t take too long to prepare. You could even save a bit of time by blanching off the veg the night before and just leaving it in the fridge until you’re ready to pop it in the oven.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pre heat the oven to 200°C
  2. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, then cook the potato for a few minutes (until they have started to soften slightly) Drain them and do the same with the carrots
  3. Cut 4 slices of lemon (about the thickness of a pound coin) and set the remaining lemon aside
  4. Spray a large baking tray or roasting tin with some low calorie cooking spray, then place the chicken on the tray and season
  5. Put the part cooked potato wedges and carrots into a large bowl and add the slices of garlic. Spray with some low calorie cooking spray and season with some salt and pepper. Add the thyme and then squeeze some of the juice of the remaining lemon into the bowl. Toss to mix well
  6. Add this to the tray with the chicken on, arranging the veg around the chicken
  7. Cook for about 30 minutes
  8. While the chicken is in the oven cook the green beans in a pan of boiling salted water for 2 or 3 minutes. You want them to retain their colour so don't cook then for any longer. Drain, then season and add the lemon slices and a little more of the juice from the lemon
  9. After 30 minutes add the green beans to the tray and return to the oven for 10 - 15 minutes
  10. Make sure the chicken thighs are cooked and the carrots and potato are soft. Serve immediately

  1. Love this recipe.. however cooked a little too much and just wondered if I could reheat and if so how long for and what temperature would be best? I’m a bit of novice when cooking chicken and know your not really supposed to reheat.

  2. Brilliant recipe! Love all your stuff – it’s always really well set out and helpful. You should totally make an app 🙂

  3. I have this in the oven now and it smells delicious .
    I think that I have have cooked a little too much though ” more for tomorrow”

    Thank you for your inspirational ideas x
