Christmas food ideas #8: Chicken & Potato Bake

I love casseroles, I love bakes and  I can turn just about anything into one. Christmas is just over 24 hours away and I can definitely say that after all the cooking and baking is done, I will not be moving unless it's for dark chocolate or food. Casseroles and tray bakes make the perfect dish, easy to prepare and a variety of foods are cooked all at once. I'm talking chicken, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes. Feel free to add a sprinkle of cheese if you're really up for living on the edge this Christmas. 


Prep time: 10 mins                                                                                     Cooking time: 45 mins

What you need:
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 pack of baby potatoes
  • 1 pack of chicken wings, marinated 2 hours before
  • Yellow, green and red pepper, chopped

  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • Fresh bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • Ground pepper
  • A sprinkle of salt to taste
