Tray Roasted Chipotle Chicken Thighs

on

This week’s recipe is probably the laziest one yet! Buy stuff, chop a bit and sling in the oven. The chipotle paste is a revelation, well worth snooping around the supermarket to find.

Takes 45 minutes, makes 4 work lunches

INGREDIENTS
1 pack skin-on chicken thighs (six pieces roughly)
2 red onions, cut into thick wedges
2 peppers, with the seeds removed and cut into strips
2 cloves of garlic
1 jar of chipotle paste (I got a great jar from @tescofood)
1 big bunch of parsley
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

METHOD
1) Pre heat your oven at 180C. Pour the chipotle paste over the chicken thighs and rub all over.
2) In a high-sided baking tray throw in the onions, peppers and garlic. Season well, add a drizzle of olive oil and a splash of water. Lay the chicken thighs on top.
3) Roast for around 30 minutes until the chicken skin is golden and the thighs are cooked through.
4) Serve with a scattering of parsley.
