Spray over the top with Pam or Frylight spray. 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 Pam or Frylight spray, add the chicken and fry until lightly golden.

Place back in the oven for approx 15-20mins until chicken is cooked through.

Serve with your choice of sides. I served mine with whole wheat spaghetti and the leaves from the beetroot sauteed in a pan with a little stock.

This dish would work well on a Green day too without the chicken.

Enjoy!!
