Steps

Preheat the oven to 210°C/190°Fan.

  • For the marinade, mix together all ingredients, stir until well combined.

  • In a large bowl, add the chicken and the marinade and toss until all thighs are covered well.

  • Add the entire contents of the bowl, including the chicken, into a large Zip-Lock bag, and securely close the bag.

  • Refrigerate for at least 1 -2 hours for flavors to combine.

  • Meanwhile, prep your vegetables.

  • Make sure all vegetables are cut the same size so they cook evenly. Usually baby potatoes do not need to be cut as they are already quite small.

  • Add all the vegetables to a large bowl, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, finely chopped thyme and toss together until well combined.

  • Spread them out on the baking sheet, remove marinated chicken from Zip-Lock bag and place them on top and in between the vegetables and bake for 30-35 minutes or until chicken reached an internal temperature of 62°C.
