Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the chicken thighs, onions and carrots in a roasting tin. Season, drizzle with the oil and nestle lemon slices around. Bake for 30 mins. Stir everything, drizzle with the honey and bake for another 15 mins until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the quinoa following pack instructions, then rinse with cold water and drain thoroughly.
  3. Mix the beetroot, yogurt, garlic, dill and some seasoning in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the quinoa, the roasted veg and 2 tbsp of the cooking juices. Pop the chicken thighs and lemon slices on top, then scatter with dill fronds. Serve with a dollop of the beetroot yogurt on the side.

Simple and delicious. Didn't need as much honey, the beetroot is quite sweet already. To cook the quinoa simply simmer for 10 mins then stand for 10 mins. Good easy-cook quinoa method here www.lovequinoarecipes.com.

I made this for dinner last night and it went down well. It is one of the best looking dishes I've made in a while, with a lovely splash of colour from the beetroot. Simple to make and I didn't change anything in the recipe, except leaving out the garlic (accidentally).
