Mediterranean style chicken traybake

“Rustle up my truly tasty traybake that takes no time at all to prepare and is packed full of flavour thanks to British chicken drumsticks and sweet San Marzano tomatoes taking centre stage. Simply throw it all in a tray and let the oven work its magic!” - Chris Baber

Halve the M&S Select Farms season's gold potatoes. Halve the San Marzano tomatoes. Crush the garlic cloves. Drain the pitted black olives. Tear the basil.

And the rest...

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6.
  2. 2 Add the potatoes, tomatoes, garlic, olives and chicken drumsticks to a roasting tin, scattering over half the basil leaves.
  3. 3 Season generously with salt and pepper, and drizzle over the extra virgin olive oil. If you like spice, here you could add in a pinch of chilli flakes or sliced chillies for a bit of heat.
  4. 4 Mix together with your hands so all of the ingredients are coated in the oil and seasoning. Arrange the drumsticks evenly around the dish on top of the other ingredients.
  5. 5 After 45 minutes, turn the chicken and baste in the juices, and give the potato and tomato mix a good stir. Bake for a further 45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and has crispy skin, and the potatoes are nicely roasted.
  6. 6 Remove from the oven. Serve with the remaining basil leaves, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar if you like.

And the rest...
