1 tbsp garlic infused oil
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, plus a few sprigs
1 tsp smoked paprika
4 tsp rapeseed or olive oil
4 chicken breast
700g red peppers, halved and deseeded
140g bacon, roughly chopped
20 pitted black olives
3 tbsp sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
gluten free pasta or potatoes, to serve
Serves - 4
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Using a pestle and mortar, crush the thyme leaves with a little seasoning and the garlic infused oil to make a paste.
Rub the herb paste on the underside of the chicken to flavour it.
Cut each of the pepper halves into 2 or 3 chunky strips, depending on their size.
Pile into a large roasting tin with the smoked paprika, bacon and olives, toss with the remaining oil, then sit the chicken on top, skin-side up.
Scatter over the tomatoes, spoon over the vinegar, season and tuck in the thyme sprigs.
Roast for 1 hr until the chicken skin is crispy and the vegetables have softened. Serve with gluten free pasta or potatoes.
