SW recipe: Lemon and garlic chicken with rainbow roasted veg

Serves 4
Ready in 1 hour 45 minutes


1.5kg whole chicken

2 lemons, 1 left whole, 1 cut into wedges to serve

4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 3cm chunks

6 raw beetroot (around 500g), peeled and cut into 2cm cubes

1 fennel bulb, sliced into wedges

500g small carrots, trimmed

12 garlic cloves, separated and left unpeeled

6 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves finely chopped

Low-calorie cooking spray

400g spring greens, shredded

350ml Slimming World Roasted Onion Gravy, to serve


1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Put the chicken in a shallow, non-stick roasting tin. Place the whole lemon inside the cavity and roast for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until cooked through and the juices run clear when you insert a skewer into the thickest part of the chicken.

2 Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 8 minutes, then drain. Spread the potatoes, beetroot, fennel, carrots and garlic cloves on your largest non-stick baking tray (or 2 smaller trays) in a single layer. Scatter over the rosemary, then spray with low-calorie cooking spray and season. Once the chicken has been cooking for 20 minutes, add the veg to the oven below the chicken and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes until golden and cooked through, turning halfway.

3 Set the chicken aside to rest for 15 minutes (leaving the veg in the oven to continue cooking) and boil the spring greens for 1-2 minutes, then drain. Heat the gravy according to the pack instructions. Discard the skin from the chicken, then carve and divide between 4 plates with the potatoes and veg. Add a twist of black pepper, pour over the gravy and serve with the lemon wedges for squeezing over the veg.


Ultimate Slimming Tips!

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods 
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.
