800g chicken skinless breast or thigh, trimmed of fat, cut into pieces

DIRECTIONS

For the Chicken

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Slice the ends off the zucchini and cut in half lengthways, then in half again. Then chop them into 3cm long sticks.

Step 2:
Prepare the other vegetables.

Step 3:
Scatter zucchini, onion, tomatoes, chickpeas and rosemary sprigs in an oven tray, add the lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon and gently toss. Top with the chicken pieces (pre-marinated in a spice rub if you like, as pictured) then add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 4:
Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the onion is soft.

Step 5:
Remove from oven and serve. So simple. So good.
