How to make a winner out of veggies!

As they like to think they're the main attraction, chicken breast filets are usually kept apart from their accompaniments on the plate. But if you find this too boring and are in the mood for more than just one or two veggie sides, you should give our Oven-roasted Veg with Chicken recipe a try...

You'll need:

  • 17½ oz chicken breast
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • cherry tomatoes

For the dressing:

  • 1 fl oz olive oil
  • ⅔ fl oz white balsamic vinegar
  • 2⅓ fl oz white wine
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 small piece of ginger
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp rosemary

Here's how:

  1. First, prepare the dressing by mixing together the ingredients listed above. The garlic clove and the ginger are grated into the dressing mix.
  2. Chop up the broccoli, onion, pepper, and zucchini into small pieces before putting everything in a large bowl with the cherry tomatoes. Now pour in the dressing.
  3. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces, and add it to the bowl with the veggies and dressing. Mix everything well.
  4. Spoon the contents of the bowl into a casserole dish and bake it in the oven at 320°F for 15 minutes.

Chopping, mixing, transferring — if only preparing food were always this easy. What a healthy and delicious way to get in some of your five-a-day!
