Cut some veg into bits.
Tonight I used sweet potatoes, carrots, swedes, onions and sprouts.
Oil them and chuck them in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 180 C (250 F or Gas Mark 4)
Then add the chicken thighs.
Give it another 30-40 minutes.
Whip up some gravy (Julia insists on gravy) and serve, pretending it’s a proper roast dinner.
Make a mental note that next time I’ll put the sprouts in at the same time as the chicken.
The timings are approximate, as I was watching the Strictly Come Dancing results. That’s why it looks a bit burnt. I think burnt food is more tasty. Apart from sprouts. Burnt sprouts aren’t an improvement.
So there you go – roast dinner, negligible thought or work.
My sort of meal.
