Flavour explosion in this Syn Free Chicken, Feta and Roasted Beetroot Bake - a perfect easy dinner.
Roasted beetroots are one of my favourite speed foods. They are seriously delicious and go well with a variety of different sides.
When I was younger, the only way I ever had beetroot was either from a jar or in a salad from one of those little vacuum packs of cooked beetroot you can buy. Absolutely nothing wrong with either of those, but roasted beetroot is just on a whole other level of deliciousness.
I can't actually remember the first time I tried the combination of roasted beets and feta, but oh my, it's just something pretty amazing. A pure taste explosion in every mouthful.
Sometimes you also just need that little bit of protein, and chicken is just the perfect choice. Although I tend to choose chicken thighs over the breast, as they just stay much more tender and really take on the flavours of whatever you cook them with.
I love recipes like this Syn Free Chicken, Feta and Roasted Beetroot Bake that once all prepped is just added all to one tray and baked in the oven. Sometimes you just want a fuss-free dinner, and this is certainly one of them.
You could actually add some potatoes to the dish too, but I love this with quinoa, the nutty flavour of quinoa just compliments this Syn Free Chicken, Feta and Roasted Beetroot Bake really well. Quinoa is a good source or protein as well as having lots of other healthy vitamins and best of all it is SYN FREE, so if you are looking for something else to try and haven’t tried quinoa, add some to your shopping basket next time you are grocery shopping and give it a try along with this dish.
