Mediterranean Chicken with Roast Baby Potatoes and Steamed Vegetables

This meal was inspired by a recipe I had for a Mediterranean Chicken dish and appropriately tweaked to suit what I had in the fridge!! The Roast Baby Potatoes and steamed vegetables are great with it but you could also serve the dish with brown rice and green beans or mange tout – whatever you have available, but try to include a variety of colours, so that you have a range of vitamins and minerals on your plate.

  • Rice Flour or Cornflour
  • Black Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Onion x 1

You can serve with rice or baby potatoes roasted with rosemary (which supports digestion) and steamed cauliflower and broccoli which are cruciferous vegetables and good for the gut, brain and liver amongst other things!
