Healthier Roast Chicken, Potatoes and Vegetables


Healthy Chicken, Potato and Veg Tray Roast

Limahl Asmall

"Chicken is one of the healthier meats and is typically leaner than chicken thighs, Although some argue the thigh is juicier, the breast works really well in this simple throw together weeknight recipe. Keep the skin on the potato for extra nutrients and a slightly crispy skin! Packed with vegetables, and seasoned with a sprinkle of tandoori spice mix, it's a weeknight winner. If you don't have tandoori spice mix, go for smoked paprika, it works equally as well. 10 mins prep, 40 mins in the oven."
