350 g, cut into florets


1 small, thinly sliced

540 g, (buy 2 x 300g fillets), fat trimmed

Green string beans

200 g

Gravy powder

1 tbs, (1 x 20g packet)

Oil spray

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C or 170°C fan-forced. Place carrots, broccoli and fennel in a large baking dish. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons oil and toss to coat. Pour ¾ cup (185ml) water over vegetables. Bake for 25 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cut each chicken breast horizontally into 2 thin fillets. Heat remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 1 minute each side or until browned. Place chicken over vegetables for last 15 minutes of baking.
  3. Boil, steam or microwave beans until tender. Prepare gravy following packet instructions. Thickly slice chicken and serve with roast vegetables, beans and gravy.
