  • 2 red onions, peeled and cut into large wedges
  • 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, de-seeded and chopped into 2cm chunks
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • ½ a bunch of fresh thyme, leaves picked from stems

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Place all the chopped veggies in a large baking dish or roasting tray (roughly 25cm x 30cm).
  3. Add the smashed garlic, chicken thighs and fresh thyme leaves to the tray.
  4. Add the paprika, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and a good pinch of salt and pepper to the above mixture and toss well to coat evenly.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly across the tray, making sure the chicken isn’t covered by the vegetables.
