1 large red onion, sliced into wedges
2 Waitrose & Partners peaches, sliced into wedges
8 British chicken thighs
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar glaze
300g pack cooked beetroot, drained and sliced into wedges
2 tbsp olive oil
250g sourdough bread (crusts on), torn into bite-sized chunks
90g pack rocket
1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Put the onion and peach wedges in a large roasting tin (about 33 x 22cm). Put the chicken pieces on top, season and brush with 1½ tbsp balsamic glaze.
2. In another, small roasting tin, toss together the beetroot, 1 tbsp oil, and remaining ½ tbsp balsamic glaze. Put both tins in the oven; cook for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and increase the temperature to 200˚C, gas mark 6.
3. Nestle the torn bread into the trays and drizzle with the remaining 1 tbsp oil, then return to the oven for 20 minutes. When golden, tip everything into a large salad bowl, toss through the rocket leaves and serve.

If you wish, you could swap the glaze for standard balsamic vinegar or another slightly sweet variety, such as sherry vinegar.
