      This is one of my favourite midweek meals. It is quick to prepare, you literally just have to throw everything into the oven. It’s got a great balance of protein, complex carbs and fibre, and is loaded with nutrients. I make a choice of pesto or tomato chicken just to have some fun with the ingredients.

      Chicken with Tomatoes or Pesto and Potatoes


      • Preheat your oven to 200C.
      • Place the potatoes on an oven dish, cover with some oil and salt.
      • Place into the oven. Next, place the cut-up chicken breasts into an oven-proof dish, cover half of them with pesto, and the other half with the tomatoes.
      • Place into the oven.
      • Next, slice the courgettes and place on an oven-proof dish, I prefer to line this with parchment paper first.
      • Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
      • Place into the oven.
      • The chicken and courgette should be done within 15-20 minutes, the potatoes take another 10 minutes (which is why I place them in the oven first).
