This week's new recipe is this all in one-pan chicken bake with halloumi and peaches. It's super easy, packed full of flavour, and has very little hands-on time, a perfect midweek dinner.
You can prepare this dish in the morning or even the day before and keep the chicken and potatoes marinating in the baking tray in the fridge ready to bake on demand. It's also an easy recipe to scale up if you’re having dinner guests.
Enjoy the recipe and video and please let me know if you have any questions.
