Makes: 2 portions
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 longstem broccoli, tough ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Place the chicken thighs, lemon wedges, olives and chopped red chilli (if using) in a roasting tin. 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.
  2. Remove the roasting tin from the oven and add the broccoli, then return it to the oven for a further 5 minutes, by which time the broccoli should have softened and charred a little. Divide the chicken and broccoli between two serving plates and serve.
