These tender chicken pieces may appear fancy but with all ingredients roasted in one tray, they are a great dinner option for any night of the week.
Level of Difficulty:
4 corn fed chicken breasts, skin on
1 red onion, quartered
8 baby leeks, trimmed
6 baby Zucchini, cut lengthways
8 plum tomatoes, halved
1 sweet red pepper, cut into rings
2 carrots, cut lengthways
4 small green peppers, cut lengthways
1 small fennel
4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 tbsp olive oil
30 g butter
1-2 sprigs thyme, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 180˚C CircoTherm®.
Lay all the prepared vegetables on a universal baking tray and sprinkle with olive oil and seasoning.
Place the chicken breasts on top of the vegetables and bake in the oven on level 3 with low moisture added for 15 minutes. Remove the moisture and continue to cook for another 10 minutes.
Using a sieve, remove the stock from the tray and bring it to boil in a separate saucepan.
Add butter and thyme as it thickens. Pour over the chicken and vegetables before serving.
