Spring chicken tray bake with green vegetables is so easy to make in 30 mins but good for you too, plus it's under 300 calories per portion! You can easily use boneless chicken thighs if you're cooking for kids, so you don't have to bother with stripping the meat off the bone. You can just as easily throw in some asparagus if you've got it at home, or any other seasonal greens you might have in the fridge. This is a simple midweek dinner that comes together in only 30 mins.


  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 6 skin-on chicken thighs

  • 1 lemon, quartered
  • small handful oregano
  • herby new potatoes, to serve

Serve up with plenty of leafy greens for a really filling and delicious dinner option.


  1. Heat the oven to 180C, gas 4. Heat the oil in a flameproof and ovenproof dish on the hob until hot. Carefully add the chicken thighs, skin side down, and cook for 4-5 minutes until golden and crisp.

  2. Remove from the hob and carefully pour over the stock and place in the oven for 15 minutes.

  3. Remove the chicken from the oven and add the vegetables and lemon quarters to the pan, making sure to coat them in the stock, and season well.
