  • 600 g SPAR Freshline Ready To Roast Traditional Vegetable Mix

Recipe Method

  1. In the morning before leaving for work, pour the marinade over the chicken pieces placed in a shallow dish (not plastic). Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC. Follow the on-pack instructions for preparing for roasting.

  4. Sprinkle fresh chopped dhania on top and serve immediately.

Hints & Tips

The microwave on-pack roasting instructions will save you even more time after the initial roasting time but to ensure the chicken is sufficiently cooked in the remaining time, it would be best to use chicken fillet strips.

RECOMMENDED ACCOMPANIMENTS: SPAR Freshline mini foccacia to mop up juices/marinade. Warm them in the same oven, alongside the foil dish, close to serving time.

RECOMMENDED WINE: your favourite white wine
