With British Food Fortnight still in full swing, we’re sharing yet another delicious recipe for our readers to try at home: Chicken Roasted With Mediterranean Vegetables.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 deg. C., 350 deg. F., Gas Mark 4.
  2. Put the olive oil in a large bowl. Peel and cut the onion into wedges, and trim and chop the courgette into bite-size pieces. Remove stalks from the yellow and red peppers and the aubergine. Deseed the peppers and cut them and the aubergine into small, even-sized chunks.
  3. Add the vegetables to the bowl and stir until they are coated with the oil. Spoon them into a large roasting tin, spreading them out evenly.
  4. Tuck the chicken thighs among the vegetables and sprinkle with the chopped thyme.
  5. Roast the chicken and vegetables for 30 minutes. Turn the vegetables over occasionally so they cook evenly.
  6. Mix together the Kikkoman soy sauce, chicken stock and pasta sauce and pour into the pan over the vegetables and around the chicken pieces. Return to the oven for a further 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
