baby spinach leaves
Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Zest the lemon to get a pinch, then slice in half. Finely grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pick and tear the oregano leaves. Pick the thyme leaves. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, thyme, oregano, lemon zest, a generous pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon juice. Drizzle with olive oil. Place your hand flat on top of a chicken breast and use a sharp knife to slice through horizontally to make two steaks. Repeat with the remaining chicken, add to the marinade and toss to coat. Set aside.
Slice the red onion into 3cm thick wedges. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Place the red onion and kumara on an oven tray lined with baking paper and drizzle with olive oil. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat then roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender. TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time!
While the veggies are roasting, trim the green beans and cut into thirds. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the green beans and a dash of water and cook for 4-5 minutes or until softened. Transfer to a large bowl.
Return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken steaks and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side (depending on thickness), or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest. TIP: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink inside.
Add the baby spinach leaves, roasted veggies and a good squeeze of lemon juice to the bowl with the green beans. Crumble over most of the feta (see ingredients list) and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
Thickly slice the lemon oregano chicken. Divide the kumara, spinach and feta toss and chicken between plates. Crumble the remaining feta (see ingredients list) over the dish.
