300g (10.5oz) of zucchini (courgette), halved lengthways and sliced

25og (9oz) of butternut squash, chopped

1 medium red onion, chopped

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 tbs of sweet paprika

1/2 tsp of onion powder

1/2 tsp of garlic powder

pinch of cayenne pepper

salt and black pepper

1/2 tbs of balsamic vinegar

1 tbs of maple syrup – 2 syns

1 cup (240ml) of chicken stock

spray oil

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 220c/425f (gas mark 7)

Place potatoes in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to a boil, turn off heat, leave for 5 mins, then drain.

Slice each chicken in half and add to a bowl. Add the garlic clove, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and salt and black pepper and mix well to coat.

Add the potatoes, red pepper, onion, zucchini and butternut squash to a large baking tray in one even layer.

Top with the chicken and then pour over the top with the chicken stock.

Spray with the spray oil.

Place in the oven and bake for 45 mins, take out half way through cooking to baste with the stock/sauce.

The traybake is ready when the potatoes are a lovely golden colour and the chicken is caramelized on the edges.

Enjoy as is, or serve with some additional sides.
