- 44.1g (11.6g saturated)
- 20.7g (15.7g sugars)
- 1 sliced aubergine
- ½ x 200g pack of feta, crumbled
- ½ bunch trimmed spring onions
- 4 British free-range skin-on chicken thighs
- 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
- 2 tbsp tahini
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tsp runny honey or agave nectar
- 100g sugar snap peas
- 1½ tbsp pomegranate molasses
- Drizzle of oil
- Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Put the aubergine, feta and spring onions in a medium roasting tray and mix together. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side up.
- In a jug or small bowl, combine the rapeseed oil, tahini, lemon juice, honey or agave nectar and season. Drizzle over the chicken and vegetables, then roast for 30 minutes.
