Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 - Carrots
    chopped
  • 2 - Chicken Breast
    cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 clove Garlic
    crushed
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 - Lime
    juice only
  • 1 - Red Onion
    chopped
  • 1 - Red Pepper
    chopped
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 - SuperValu Parsnip
    chopped
  • 1 - SuperValu Sweet Potato
    chopped
  • 2 tsp Wholegrain Mustard
  • 1 - Yellow Pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/gas mark 4.
  2. Place the vegetables on a large baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, until cooked through and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the honey mustard sauce, mix the olive oil with the honey, mustard, lime juice and garlic. Place the diced chicken in a bowl, pour over the sauce and mix to combine.
  4. Warm a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, then add the chicken and the sauce and cook for 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with the oven-roasted veg.

Tip: If you prefer, you can oven bake the chicken. Just allow it to marinate in the honey mustard sauce for 2 hours, then transfer to a baking tray and cook in the oven alongside the roasted veg for 20 minutes.
