267 calories per serve (1118kJ)

 

145 g (5 oz/2 large) carrots, halved lengthways and sliced

4 small red onions (optional), peeled and quartered

2 leeks, white part only, sliced

2 lemons, quartered

2 garlic cloves

370 g (13 oz/about 2) skinless chicken thighs, halved

625 ml (211/2  fl oz/21/2  cups) chicken stock

400 g (14 oz) tinned diced tomatoes

2 bay leaves

a few thyme sprigs

a few rosemary sprigs

drizzle of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar-free wholegrain mustard

Celtic sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 

 

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

Put the carrots, onions (if using), leeks, lemons and garlic in a large roasting tin. Rest the chicken thighs on top of the vegetables, then pour in the stock and tomatoes and top with the herbs. Drizzle in the apple cider vinegar, then bake for 35–40 minutes, until the vegetables and chicken are cooked through.

Remove the chicken and vegetables from the pan and keep warm. Discard the bay leaf (and perhaps the lemon quarters if you prefer) and transfer the juices to a saucepan. Bring the juices to the boil, then add the mustard and boil for 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables, then serve.
