  • For the Chicken Thighs
  • tsp ½ dried mixed herbs
  • tsp ½ garlic granules
  • tsp ½ ground pepper
  • tsp ½ salt
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion - peeled & sliced
  • For the cheesy roast cauliflower
  • ½ small cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • tsp ½ dried mixed herbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 25 g mature cheddar - finely grated


  • For the chicken thighs
  • Preheat the oven to 200C / GM 6.
  • Place herbs, garlic, pepper, salt and zest from half the lemon into a bowl and mix well. Add the chicken and mix well, making sure the chicken is well coated with the rub.
  • Pour the oil into the bottom of a small roasting dish, and scatter the onion slices on top. Mix to coast the onion with the oil. Arrange the chicken thighs on top of the onion. Cut the lemon into quarters and nestle each one between the chicken thighs.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 40 - 50 minutes until cooked and the skin is crisp.
  • For the cheesy roast cauliflower
  • Preheat the oven to 200C / GM 6
  • Boil a kettle of water. Chop the cauliflower into florets, place in a colander or sieve over a sink, and pour over the boiled water (this really cuts down on the cooking time), shake well to remove most of the water.
  • Place the cauliflower into a bowl, add the oil, herbs and seasoning and mix well.
  • Transfer to a roasting dish and place in the oven and cook for 30 - 40 mins adding the grated cheese for the last 5 minutes of the cooking time.
