Mediterranean chicken with roasted vegetables

A healthy dish, full of sunshine flavours.


  • 250g baby new potatoes , thinly sliced
  • 1 large courgette , diagonally sliced
  • 1 red onion , cut into wedges
  • 1 yellow pepper , seeded and cut into chunks
  • 6 firm plum tomatoes , halved
  • 12 black olives , pitted
  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets , about 150g/5oz each
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 rounded tbsp green pesto
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/ Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Spread the potatoes, courgette, onion, pepper and tomatoes in a shallow roasting tin and scatter over the olives. Season with salt and coarsely ground black pepper.
  • Slash the flesh of each chicken breast 3-4 times using a sharp knife, then lay the chicken on top of the vegetables.
  • Mix the olive oil and pesto together until well blended and spoon evenly over the chicken. Cover the tin with foil and cook for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil from the tin. Return to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes until the vegetables are juicy and look tempting to eat and the chicken is cooked through (the juices should run clear when pierced with a skewer).
