Tray-Baked Chicken With Butter Beans, Leeks And Spinach Recipe
By WH Staff | May 10, 2018
One-pan meals are the OG of easy, dishwashing-friendly recipes. This bake combines chicken, butter beans and spinach, and can be served with roasted baby potatoes or sweet potato fries.
- 1 whole chicken, jointed, or 2 breasts
- 2 chicken thighs and 2 drumsticks, skin removed
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 head of garlic, cut in half horizontally
- 1 leek, trimmed, halved lengthways and sliced
- 200ml dry white wine
- 400ml chicken or vegetable stock
- 2 thyme sprigs
- 2 x 400g tins butter beans, drained and rinsed
- 250g baby spinach leaves
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Place a large roasting tray on the hob to warm up and add the oil. Once hot, brown the chicken pieces on all sides until nicely coloured. Turn the chicken skin side up.
Add the garlic to the tray, cut side down, then add the leeks and stir around in the oil.
Pour in the white wine and allow to bubble for 2 minutes, then add the stock. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom.
Turn off the heat and add the thyme sprigs, butter beans and spinach, nestling them between the chicken pieces. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and mix everything together, then put the tray into the preheated oven. Bake for 35–40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Give the tray a stir occasionally to make sure everything is cooking evenly.
Remove the tray from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving in warm shallow bowls.
