Warming One-Pot Simple Thai Inspired Chicken for a blustery evening :)

I've had a mad day and I'm running a little late, trying to be some kind of domestic goddess I plan dinner to be ready at 7:30pm - yeh sure! No problem!
Ha! Realistically, it wasn't going to work like that - or so I thought! I needed a quick fix, a tasty supper that I can make. I still had enough time and so decided to do a little 'experiment' as I call it, try something new, raid the fridge and see what's in there... This is what I came up with and you know what... It wasn't half bad!

It needed to be in one baking dish - I had decided I couldn't be bothered messing around with different pans - and so here it is, made up as I went along! All in one pot - Thai inspired chicken! Oh nom nom nom!! Whipped up a small pan of rice to go with it, nice and simple hot food for this very cold and extremely blustery evening!


Ingredients:

For the chicken marinade -

  • 1 stick of lemongrass
  • small bunch of coriander
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • thumb sized piece of ginger
  • 1 tbsp ginger preserve
  • 1/2 large chilli (or 1 small one)
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tbsp chilli infused olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic infused olive oil
  • juice of half a lemon
For the rest of the recipe:
  • 1 pack of chicken thighs - or breast if you prefer
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper de-seeded and chopped in large chunks
  • 1/2 tbsp yakitori sauce
  • Salt and pepper
Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees (fan around 190-200 degrees)
  • Blitz all the ingredients for the marinade in a food processor and cover the chicken with it
  • Leave to marinade for around an hour or as long as you have
  • Put in the baking dish and then squidge the sweet potato and red pepper pieces in between the chicken pieces
  • Put in the oven for around 45 - 60 mins until cooked through and a little brown on top
  • Towards the end of cooking, sprinkle over the yakitori sauce and add some salt and pepper
  • Sprinkle with chopped fresh coriander and serve with boiled rice 
Hope you enjoy!
