Rosemary Chicken with Oven-Roasted Ratatouille

Rosemary chicken with oven-roasted ratatouille

You can't beat this one-pot recipe for an easy meal, bursting with summer colour and flavour. It works out at 11g carbs per serving.

Serves Four
1 aubergine, cut into chunky pieces
2 courgettes, sliced into half-moons
3 mixed peppers, deseeded and roughly chopped
2 tsp finely chopped rosemary, plus 4 small sprigs
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
3 tbsp olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
250g cherry or baby plum tomatoes, halved

1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a large roasting tin, toss together the aubergine, courgettes and peppers with half the chopped rosemary, half the garlic, 2 tbsp oil and some seasoning. Spread out the vegetables in an even layer, then roast in the oven for 20 mins.
2. Meanwhile, mix remaining rosemary, garlic and oil together. Slash each of the chicken breasts 4-5 times with a sharp knife, brush over the flavoured oil, season and chill for 15 mins.
3. After veg have cooked for 20 mins, stir in the tomatoes. Make spaces in the roasting tin and nestle the chicken breasts amongst the vegetables. Place a rosemary sprig on top of each chicken breast. Return the tin to the oven for 18-20 mins, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are lightly caramelised. 

Helpful Tip:
If you don't have fresh rosemary, use fresh thyme or a couple of pinches of dried rosemary. Dried herbs have a more intense flavour, so use less.

Makes a great mid-week meal idea.

I'm a big fan of one-pot meals, or tray-bakes. And doing plenty of veges so I can turn the leftovers into a breakfast frittata. But I would leave the skin on the chicken!

Hi Judith and thanks for your comment. One pot meals are great aren't they! And yes leave the skin on the chicken, adds to the goodness and taste.

You can't beat frittata's either, a very good choice for breakfast.

Hope your week is going well.

All the best Jan
