Roast Chicken Pieces

These are great when you need that roast chicken flavor but don’t have the time. Using chicken pieces halves the time and tastes the same. I often make this with a variety of seasonings but this one is a real favorite. Feel free to make a variety of flavours at the same time.

I have been known to make each of my kids a different flavour just to keep the peace!

What you need for 4

4-6 chicken portions
Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Dried thyme

Alternatives: Barbeque, chicken spice, Paprika and salt, mixed herbs – you get the idea, just use whatever your favourite flavours are and experiment.

The process

First of all pour a little olive oil into your hands and rub it all over each chicken portion.

Season well with salt and pepper and a sprinkle of thyme on both sides and place the chicken pieces on a rack in a roasting pan.

Roast for 30 minutes or until done in a 200 Celsius oven.

Simple as that folks. Serve with a green salad for an ideal summer lunch or some steamed veggies tossed in butter with some chopped parsley.
