Roasting lettuce sweetens its flavour. We’ve paired it with chicken and bacon for a surprisingly low-SmartPoints meal


Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Chicken Thigh, Skinless, Boneless, raw

4 individual, medium

Red onion

2 small, peeled and cut into wedges

Bacon medallions, raw

100 g, cut into thick strips


4 individual, large baby cos

Olive Oil

1 tablespoon(s)

Peas, frozen, boiled

100 g

Half Fat Crème Frâiche

2 tablespoon(s), level


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Mist a large frying pan with cooking spray. Fry the chicken over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until just starting to turn golden. Transfer to a large flameproof roasting tin.
  2. 2 Put the onions and bacon in the same pan you used for the chicken and fry for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to the roasting tin with the chicken and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the tin from the oven, brush the cut sides of the lettuce halves with the oil, then nestle the lettuce, cut-side up, tightly around the chicken. Return the tin to the oven and roast for another 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the lettuce is lightly charred.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the peas in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes until tender. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  5. Remove from the oven and put the tin on the hob over a low heat. Stir through the crème fraîche and peas, then heat gently for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Divide between plates and serve seasoned to taste.


If you like, serve the traybake with 150g boiled new potatoes per person. Remember to adjust the SmartPoints.
