healthy_eatingThis is a delicious and simple weight loss friendly dish that is sure to become a favourite.
The onion, leeks and white wine infuse to produce a really delicate flavour for the chicken.
You can choose to use any cut of chicken for this recipe – thighs taste great, as do breast or a chicken Maryland.
We’ve used a selection of veggies but you can also throw in any of your favourite vegetables to roast.
Why not try it with:

  • Asparagus and zucchini
  • Yellow squash and Brussels sprouts
  • New potatoes and green beans
  • 6 chicken thighs OR 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthways OR 4 chicken Marylands
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium brown onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large leek (white part only), washed and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 250ml (1 cup) of dry white wine (or you can substitute with 250ml chicken stock)
  • 1 green capsicum, cut into chunks
  • 1 large carrot, cut into chunky pieces
  • 8 baby corn cobs
  • Juice and zest of one large lemon
  • 5 sprigs of thyme, leaves only
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Preheat your oven to 180C.
  • Heat a large pan over a med/high heat (ideally one that you can transfer to the oven).
  • Heat the oil, and then add the garlic and onions. Cook for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Add the leeks and cook for a further 3 minutes. Keep stirring every now and then so they don’t burn.
  • Add the capsicum, baby corn and carrot, and then pour over the wine.
  • Bring the pan to the boil for 30 seconds. You will smell that the wine is cooking off the alcohol at this time.
  • Add the chicken pieces, salt and pepper, the lemon juice and the lemon zest. Sprinkle with the thyme leaves. Stir and allow to cook for around 1 minute.
  • Place in the hot oven, uncovered, for approximately 45 minutes, turning once throughout this time.
  • Serve with even more veggies (such as steamed asparagus or peas); or your favourite noodles or cous cous.
