Chicken Tray-bake Greek Style

Doesn't everyone need a chicken tray-bake recipe handy for an easy dinner! Well, quite a few of my blogging friends may! So today I share this recipe from 'The Hairy Bikers'. Regular readers are getting used to seeing suggestions from "David Myers and Simon King, (who make up the Hairy Bikers), two northern blokes with a passion for cooking and food."

This blog brings a variety of recipe ideas, and it is always important to note, that not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account, and if you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, then test is best, i.e. use your meter.

For instance, many diabetics, and those who live the LCHF or Keto lifestyle, do not include potatoes in their menu plans and this recipe suggestion does include potatoes!

Always remember that recipes can be amended slightly to suit your needs and adjust the carbs or nutrition requirements accordingly. If you would like a lower carb alternative to potatoes you will find some suggestions here

If you'd like to see more details about this recipe suggestion, then please read on.

Serves Three
For the Greek-style chicken tray-bake
2 aubergines (eggplants), cut into rounds
1 red pepper, thickly sliced
1 red onion, cut into wedges
8 new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp red wine vinegar
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
2 rosemary sprigs
6 chicken thighs on the bone
2 tomatoes, quartered, or 8 cherry tomatoes
150g/5½oz feta, cut into chunks
small bunch mint leaves, roughly shredded, to serve
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
2. Put the aubergines (eggplants), pepper, onion and potatoes in a large roasting dish and drizzle over 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the vinegar. Sprinkle over the garlic, oregano and rosemary sprigs and season with salt and pepper. Cover the dish with kitchen foil and roast for 40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
3. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side down, and cook until golden or crispy. Turn the thighs over and cook for a few more minutes.
4. Turn the oven up to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.
5. Scatter the tomatoes and feta evenly over the roasting dish on top of the vegetables. Place the chicken thighs on top, skin-side up. Roast uncovered for 15–20 minutes. Remove from the oven and check the chicken has cooked through by checking the juices run clear with no trace of pink when the thickest part of the leg, between the drumstick and the thigh, is pierced with a skewer.
6. Garnish the bake with the mint and serve with a simple salad.

Chicken is always a good stand by. I always have chicken thighs in the freezer. I have never added cheese though so that will make an interesting change.

I love these kind of dishes and this one I would make. Then I read the previous post about bone fractures and became a bit worried as chicken and some ham now and then are the only meats I eat. I have a hard time chewing meat, so maybe next time I go to the store, the order online I should say, I will get some ground beef and make a nice old fashioned meatloaf. Now you've inspired me.

We always love a tray bake (even in Summer). Yours looks scrumptious Jan, and a nice reminder to try this much easier way of meal prep.
I'm closing my blog for the year, sorry I haven't been around very much of late.
Sending you my warmest good wishes, Sue xx
