    Easy chicken traybake with anchovy dressing

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 50 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1kg pack essential Waitrose British Chicken Thigh Fillets
    3 red onions, cut into thin wedges
    2 fennel bulbs, cut into thin wedges
    150ml extra virgin olive oil
    250g frozen baby broad beans or fresh peas
    50g can anchovy fillets, drained and chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tbsp white wine vinegar
    2 x 25g packs parsley, chopped
    ½ x 110g jar Crespo Pitted Dry Black Olives
    2 olive ciabattas, warmed, to serve


    1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, gas mark 5. Pat the chicken thighs dry on kitchen paper and halve each one. Put in a large roasting tin with the onions and fennel. Drizzle with 2 tbsp of the oil and a little seasoning and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat, and the vegetables are lightly browned. Turn the ingredients in the oil a couple of times during cooking so they brown evenly.

    2. Meanwhile, cook the broad beans or peas in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain. Combine the remaining olive oil with the chopped anchovies, garlic, vinegar and two-thirds of the parsley.

    3. Tip the beans, olives and dressing over the chicken and vegetables and toss all the ingredients together well. Return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Scatter with the remaining parsley and serve with the bread.
