Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a large roasting tin, toss together the aubergine, courgettes and peppers with half the chopped rosemary, half the garlic, 2 tbsp oil and some seasoning. Spread out the vegetables in an even layer, then roast in the oven for 20 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, mix remaining rosemary, garlic and oil together. Slash each of the chicken breasts 4-5 times with a sharp knife, brush over the flavoured oil, season and chill for 15 mins.
  3. After veg have cooked for 20 mins, stir in the tomatoes. Make spaces in the roasting tin and nestle the chicken breasts amongst the vegetables. Place a rosemary sprig on top of each chicken breast. Return the tin to the oven for 18-20 mins, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are lightly caramelised. Serve with some new potatoes, if you like.

Good! But I did halve the vegetables so that it all fitted in the tray and found there was still plenty.

This was DELICIOUS! I can see this becoming a firm favourite for a summer Sunday dinner! Lovely :0)

My kinda meal.

Healthy and inexpensive.

LOADS of garlic and plenty of seasoning gives this dish a wonderful punch.

Easy to make and delicious. Well worth using fresh rosemary as it really sets the dish off as something special.

I used chicken legs (bone in) and put them in at the same time as the veg and cooked for about 35mins. Also used a tin of chopped toms sieved instead of the cherry toms, still only added this half way through. Simple quick dish which we enjoyed, will be doing again.

I've made this several times and it's easy, healthy and very tasty - nice for a weekday supper or even an informal meal with friends - make it in one huge dish and it looks very impressive. Make sure you use fresh rosemary.

Summer in one dish! I add par boiled new potatoes at the beginning and I'll be whizzing up leftovers with a tin of tomatoes to make a delicious soup.

Lots of flavour, healthy and summery. Very nice as an alternative to roast dinner when the weather is hot.

This was delish. Very low in fat and with a bit of balsamic vinegar after cooking it was perfect for an October evening :)

...Tried this with turkey steaks. The moisture in the dish made the turkey lovely and tender. A great healthy dish!

Really liked this. Parboiled some new potatoes and added them halved to the dish, gave good flavour to the pots as they soaked up the juices. Lovely!

Great veg, my chicken was quite bland though, any suggestions for next time?
