Lazy Sunday Dinner – all in one tray bake!

Lazy Sunday Dinner – all in one tray bake!

Oh I love a tray bake and I also love a Sunday Roast and not just on a Sunday. But I also like time to do other things (especially now I’m on my own and not feeding the masses as I used to).

I remember when I was a kid, my mum would spend hours  (hours) on a Sunday cooking the roast. I just don’t have the time. However I do love and actually need that Sunday style lunch or supper – so here is my compromise.

The key to baking all the ingredients together is making sure everything is sized accordingly, this is why the chicken breasts are halved , as are the new potatoes etc. Wrapping the chicken with a sausage and then in bacon ensures the chicken remains moist and delicious!

So today I had a bit of a play and managed to produce a lovely supper – 50 minutes in the oven and hardly any washing up. While it baked I watered the garden and blogged a bit. What more could you ask for?

I stir-fried some spring greens and made some gravy and that was that – perfect!

So have a go peeps and let me know what you think, please drop me a comment?

Thanks Clare x

Ingredients

Serves 2 (double up for 4 – but find a massive tray or bake in 2)

  • 2 Chicken breast fillets, halved
  • 4 Pork Chipolatas
  • 4 Slices Smoked streaky bacon
  • Small bag Jersey Royal New Potatoes, halved
  • 1 Large Parsnip – sliced length ways into 4
  • 6 small ish carrots – if not small slice lengthways

  • Cracked Black pepper

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat oven 200C/400F/Gas6
  2. Find yourself a large baking tin
  3. Take each of the 4 chicken pieces and pop a sausage on top
  4. Use 1 rasher of streaky bacon for each piece and wrap around to secure sausage to chicken and pop these in the baking tray
  5. Now add all the vegetables to the baking tray followed by the lemon pieces and drizzle in Olive Oil
  6. Finally season with salt and pepper
  7. Bake in the centre of the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes
  8. Remove from the oven stir around – pop back into the oven again
  9. Turn the oven up to 240C/475F/Gas9 and bake for a further 20 minutes
  10. Remove from the oven when golden brown and everything is tender
  11. Discard the lemon pieces and serve!

This looks lovely and so easy! I love dishes which allow you to get on with other things (while still tasting delicious at the end). It looks like your parsnips and potatoes have still got some roasted crispiness to them too. #CookBlogShare
