'FF takes on Jamie' Hit 'n' run tray-baked chicken

/ Leave a Comment
This recipe has to be the best meal yet and should be in everyones repertoire. Its simple, quick and super easy! The recipe calls for every day core ingredients so there is no need for you to go out of your way to buy them.

For a dish that was super easy and simple, it was packed with delicious flavours! The garlic, onion and tomatoes were absorbed by the chicken beautifully and were super juicy.

I was surprised that there weren't any potatoes with this dish so I made it my highest priority to create these super delicious, crispy potatoes. My family and I absolutely love our taters so this was an absolute must!

Hit 'n' run tray baked chicken 

Serves 4

4 large tomatoes, quartered
3 large onions, quartered
2 capsicums, chopped (they can be of any colour)
4 garlic cloves
1/2 a bunch of fresh thyme or 15g of dried thyme
6 chicken thighs/ 3 large breasts/ 8 chicken tenderloins
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil

Combine the quartered tomatoes, quartered onions, chopped capsicums in a bowl.

Crush the garlic with a knife, skin on, and place them in the same bowl.

If you're using the chicken thigh just add it through but if you're going to be using the tenderloins or breast, chop them at a reasonable size (let the photos above guide you). Add them to the bowl.

Add the thyme, paprika, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Add salt.

Toss the bowl until its thoroughly mixed through. Empty bowls contents into a pan and bake it in the oven for about an hour or until the chicken is cooked.

Serve it with a nice fresh green salad!


Crispy Garlic Thyme Potatoes

Serves 4
8 potatoes
boiling water
3 large garlic cloves, sliced, skin on
a few sprigs of thyme
2 tbsp olive oil or as much as you want/need

Peel and chop the potatoes into quarters. Put them in a saucepan and add the garlic cloves and salt.

Fill the pan with boiling water and cover. Allow the potatoes to cook until they're not yet soft, still a little firm.

Drain the potatoes and return back to the pan with the garlic and return to heat. Add the thyme and olive oil and let it cook on the stove top until they've browned. 

Serve alone or as a side dish with roast chicken, lamb roast or any desired meal.
