Ingredients (serves 2)

Prep time: 7 mins / Total cook time: 35 mins

2 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs
1 lemon, cut into wedges and pips removed
100g pitted mixed olives
1 red chilli, roughly chopped (optional)
100g broccolini, tough ends trimmed

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan.
  2. Place the chicken thighs,
    lemon wedges, olives and chopped red chilli (if using) in a
    roasting tin.
  3. Sprinkle the olive oil and some salt and pepper over
    the top, then roast in the oven for 30 minutes, until the chicken
    thighs are cooked through.
  4. Remove the roasting tin from the oven and add the broccolini, then return it to the oven for a further 5 minutes, by which time the broccolini should have softened and charred a little.
  5. Divide the chicken and broccolini between two serving plates and serve.
