All in one chicken and veg!

I haven't really had time to cook this week, after a spending the weekend with my lovely boyfriend and landing myself a new job, it's all been go really!

This recipe is sort of a perfect 'I just got home from work and I can't be bothered to cook, but I want something healthy..' because it's so easy, and except for the chopping pretty much effortless.

So you will need:
  • 1 chicken leg, and chicken thigh per person
  • 1 whole onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 or 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2tsp Jamaican jerk seasoning 
  • salt and pepper seasoning
  • 250ml chicken stock
If you want to make the dish healthier take the skin of the chicken, because that holds a lot of fat! Also you can add whatever extra vegetables that you want really, tomatoes and celery would work well.

Start off by peeling and chopping up all your vegetables, and then throw them dish with your chicken legs and thighs, which you should slice across the skin. Once they're all in sprinkle the jerk seasoning, along with some salt and pepper then mix it in well. Finally add the chicken stock, and your ready to bake.

Pop in an oven heated to 220degrees, and leave it in there for 40-50mins and it should come out looking something like this... but a little less burnt, oops.

The perfect mix of lazy, healthy and good home cooking!
