Balsamic Chicken & Vegetable Bake

This is a ridiculously simple one tray recipe, making it perfect for week day dining when you have neither time or patience to play with.



4 chicken breasts

2 onions

3 cloves of garlic

250ml balsamic vinegar

250ml olive oil

A mixture of any vegetables you have in the fridge. I would recommend a combination of any of the following: sweet potatoes, butternut squash, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, aubergine, courgette, green beans, cherry tomatoes

Handful fresh basil

Salt & pepper to season



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180
  2. Chop up all the vegetables to around the same size to ensure that they will all cook in around the same time
  3. Mix together the vinegar, oil, garlic (crushed), herbs and seasoning in a large sealable freezer bag, adding the chicken and massaging it well to ensure the flavor gets into all the meat
  4. Place the vegetable, chicken and all excess marinade in a large baking tray, trying to ensure that there’s not cross over of items on the tray. Cook in the centre of a hot oven for around 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through


Perfect served with either a fresh green salad or on a pile of couscous depending on whether you need those extra carby comforts.
