    I love all in one dishes – so much less washing up! My husband would love this! Thanks for sharing!

    I love roasting vegetables like this but think I would cook the chicken separately as I like to through away the fat – the red wine addition sounds like a tasty idea, I often put lemon juice on my roasted veg:-)

    • honestmum

      You could remove the fat but the whole point of a tava dish, it’s all cooked in one dish, pot or tray! You will reduce the flavour somewhat by cooking things separately! Thanks!

    Oh wow that looks and sounds delicious! We hardly ever have meat in the house since going gluten-free since our shopping bill is so much without it! However, I might have to push the boat out for this one! 😉

    I love all the Greek dishes you make. I love Mediterranean cuisine and Greek food is simply beautiful, fresh and delicious.
    Very nice chicken dish!

    Wow I really need to stop reading your recipes when I am absolutely starving. You just made my mouth water and stomach grumble all at the same time with this. Looks delicious. A perfect hearty winter meal. Thanks for hosting my lovely.

    Looks like a lovely autumn dish! We’re coming into salad season in NZ. Though not without pudding! Thanks for the opportunity to link up.

    It looks delicious and so full of goodness, Vicki! I love the picture of the veg pre-cooking. x
