12 Ingredients


– 600g baby coliban (chat) potatoes

– 2 tbsp finely grated parmesan

Chicken mignon

– 40g butter, at room temperature

– 2 garlic cloves, crushed

– 1 tbsp chopped fresh continental parsley

– 4 chicken thigh fillets, trimmed

– 8 streaky bacon rashers

Veggie medley

– 250g bought zucchini noodles

– 1 small head (about 275g) of broccoli, cut into small florets

– 100g cherry tomatoes, halved

– 2 tsp finely grated lemon rind

– 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

6 Method / Steps

Step 1

Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan-forced. Grease twelve 200ml muffin pans.

Step 2

To make the potatoes, place the potatoes on a plate and cover them loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on High for 5 minutes or until tender when pierced with a small sharp knife. Transfer to a chopping board and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 3

Meanwhile, make the chicken. Place the butter, garlic and parsley in a bowl. Use a fork to mash until well combined. Place the chicken, top-side down, on a chopping board. Spread the butter mixture evenly among the chicken fillets. Fold the chicken in half to enclose the butter mixture. Wrap each chicken fillet with 2 rashers bacon. Place, seam-side down, into 4 of the muffin pans.

Step 4

Use a large spoon to gently crush each potato slightly, breaking the skin. Season with salt and spray with oil. Divide the potatoes among 4 of the remaining muffin pans. Spray the tops of chicken and potatoes with oil. Bake for 30 minutes.

Step 5

Meanwhile, make the veggies. Cut the zucchini noodles into thirds. Place in a large bowl with broccoli, tomatoes, lemon rind and oil. Toss until combined.

Step 6

Divide the veggies among the remaining muffin pans. Sprinkle the potatoes with parmesan. Bake for a further 15 minutes or until veggies are tender and chicken and potato are golden browns. Divide chicken, potatoes and vegetables among serving plates. Drizzle with pan juices to serve.
