15g torn fresh basil leaves, to serve
1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spray a large, non-stick roasting tin with low-calorie cooking spray. Spread the vegetables, garlic and chicken in the tin in a single layer and season. Scatter the oregano over the chicken, then add a splash of water to the tin.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
