  • 7 oz carrots 200g, around 4 large
  • 15 oz potatoes 425g, new potatoes are probably best but as you have/prefer
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For chicken

  • 2 lb chicken thighs bone-in/on the bone
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice approx ½ lemon
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika or more
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic or 3 if smaller

To finish

  • 3 oz green beans 85g
  • 2 tablespoon parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C.
  • Peel or scrub the carrots and cut into lengths around 2-3in/5-7cm long. Cut the potatoes into similar-sized pieces (I left skin on but peel if you prefer).
  • Toss the carrots and potatoes with the 2tablespoon oil, ½teaspoon paprika and ½teaspoon salt in a large baking dish/casserole and roast in the oven for around 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, toss the chicken thighs with the lemon juice and zest, 1tablespoon olive oil, ½teaspoon paprika - more if you'd like a little more of the taste -, ½teaspoon salt and sliced-up garlic cloves in a bowl.
  • Trim the ends off the beans and cut any long ones into slightly shorter lengths.
  • After the carrots and potatoes have had around 15-20min, add the beans on top followed by the chicken.
  • Roast for another approx 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through (it may need a little more) and the vegetables are tender. Sprinkle over the parsley and serve - don't forget to spoon over the liquid at the bottom of the pan, it's delicious!
  • Note: The beans will still be a little crunchy but personally I like that. If you'd prefer them much softer, then pre-steam or boil them (or cook separately)
