- Chicken - we used boneless and skinless chicken breast but you can easily use other cuts of chicken or your other favorite protein.

- Cheese - go with crumbled feta cheese that melts and bakes into a golden topping.
- Vegetable oil - olive oil or another vegetable oil works fine.
- Lemon - optionally drizzle with half a slice of lemon juice when it comes out of the oven.
- Seasonings - you'll only need sea salt and black pepper for this recipe.
How To Make It
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (250 degrees Celsius) and prepare a baking tray.
Place the chicken breasts and frozen or fresh mixed vegetables in to the baking tray. Drizzle olive oil or vegetable oil over the chicken and veggies.
Season with sea salt and black pepper then bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through.
Remove from the oven and add the crumbled feta cheese, then return to the oven for a further 10 minutes. If it looks dry you can add a bit of extra water.
Remove the chicken tray bake from the oven and squeeze over fresh lemon juice. Enjoy!
This roasted chicken and vegetables dish is great as leftovers. You can also make a larger batch and use it for meal prepping but freezing portions.
In the fridge
Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they'll keep for up to 4 days.
To reheat, pop the leftovers in the microwave for a few minutes or transfer them to a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake at 375°F (190°C) for around 10 minutes or until completely warmed.
In the freezer
Alternatively you can freeze leftovers from a larger batch in an airtight and freezer proof container or bag where they'll keep for up to 4 months. Just remember that cooked frozen veggies will be quite a lot softer than the original dish.
You can thaw the leftovers straight from the freezer in the microwave, or transfer them to a baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake at 375°F (190°C) for around 20 minutes or until completely warned.
