Chicken and Haloumi Tray Bake
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Chicken and Halloumi:
800g Chicken Breast (I used The Bare Bird Chicken)
8 baby red potatoes, cut into small quartered pieces
200g halloumi, sliced 2cm thick
6 cloves of garlic, halved
Chicken and Potato Marinade:
8 springs of fresh thyme, leaves removed
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
Zest of 1 lemon
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼ cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
1. Preheat oven to 180C fan-forced and line a roasting tray with baking paper.
2. Combine in a bowl the extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest, honey, oregano, and thyme leaves and mix well.
3. Place chicken, potatoes, and whole garlic cloves into a large bowl and drizzle over the marinade. Season with sea salt and pepper. Spread onto the baking tray, cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and add the halloumi slices. Place back into the oven uncovered for a further 10-15 minutes.
5. In the meantime, whisk in a bowl the dressing ingredients. Set aside.
6. Once baked remove from oven. Take the garlic from the tray and add it to the dressing. Mash the garlic with a fork and then whisk all ingredients to combine. Spoon the dressing over the chicken, potatoes, and halloumi. Serve immediately.
Note: to make this recipe dairy free, use vegan halloumi
