I hear it so often – healthy eating takes a lot of time.  My main aim is to show everyone that this is not always the case.  Stocking up on fresh foods and keeping a well stocked pantry can allow you to create delicious food in a fast and fuss free way.

Now, this chicken tray bake is a real winner – I have often served it at family gatherings and when I need to make a meal for a new mom and also when we need to jazz up a chicken pack.  It is quick and easy and SO tasty.  Give it a try and I can guarantee it will be a keeper.  Originally inspired from a recipe in my Pick ‘n Pay Fresh Living Magazine – I adapted it a little and love this version and hope you will too.

  2. Place some foil on the base of a roasting dish/pan (this saves on washing up later but isn’t essential to the recipe).

  4. Finally pour over the white wine and stock.
  5. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes. See note below!
