I love roasted beets and they go really well with some Feta. I serve this dish with some brown rice pasta, but it would be great served with rice or just as it is with a big salad for a Original or SP day.

Extra Easy – 1 HEa per serving

- 300g/10.5oz of chicken thigh (all visible fat removed), sliced into bitesize chunks

Remove leaves from beetroot and set aside. Scrub beets until clean and then slice into quarters.
Place in an oven proof dish, scatter with the onion and garlic and some fresh thyme and season well with salt and black pepper.
Spray over the top with spray oil. Place in the oven and roast until a beetroot is softened and onion and garlic and caramelised.
When beetroot is almost done. Season chicken this with salt and black pepper and sprinkle with some mixed Italian herbs, spray a frying pan over a medium high heat with some spray oil, add the chicken and fry until lightly golden.
Scatter the chicken thigh meat into the dish with the beetroot, onion and garlic and crumble your feta cheese over the top.
Place back in the oven for approx 15-20mins until chicken is cooked through.
Serve with your choice of sides. I served mine with brown rice past and the leaves from the beetroot sauteed in a pan with a little stock.
