Greek Chicken Tray Bake
Summer flavours are here! Healthy, vegetable-packed dinners are perfect for summer evenings and weekend family meals. This Greek Chicken Tray Bake is something everyone can share and enjoy, and it’s perfect if you're doing baby-led weaning too. There are lots of vegetables and herbs, as well as some succulent chicken for a satisfying meal. You can serve this with whatever you like - we enjoy making stuffed pittas with the chicken and vegetables, all topped with a fresh tzatiki, which is very simple to make on the side.
As with all my dinners, this is quick to prepare and quick to cook. You can swap in any other vegetables you might fancy, or take out the chicken if you're looking for a meat-free dish (these vegetables taste delicious with just feta sprinkled on top). I love a dinner that is all in one dish- less washing up, less mess and everyone can just help themselves.
If you want to prepare ahead, mix vegetables and chicken with the marinade ingredients and leave in the fridge until ready to cook.
