One-tray Chicken Thighs

This is great for when I get home tired and hungry. So quick and easy – you literally throw everything you want with your chicken into a roasting tray, pop it into a hot oven for 20 minutes, and there you go. Easy and delicious. Don’t forget you could always replace the chicken thighs with a piece of fish, if you want a change.

Serves: 1


  • 1–2 chicken thighs
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled, halved and sliced
  • 1 tomato, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • large sprig rosemary
  • basil leaves, to serve (optional)


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Put the chicken thighs, garlic, onion and tomato in a roasting tray.

Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

Add a sprig of rosemary and roast in the oven for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Check that the chicken is cooked properly by cutting it open at the thickest point to make sure there is no sign of pink.

Tip onto a plate, add some basil, if you have it, and serve. You could also serve this dish with pasta or rice.
