  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan).
  • Prepare the vegetables. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop into 2.5cm chunks. De-seed the peppers and chop into similar size pieces. Finally slice the fennel again roughly in quite large pieces. Peel and then cut the red onion into 8 wedges. Halve the oranges.
  • Next slice the chorizo, score the chicken thighs, drain and rinse the butter beans.
  • Add everything into a large roasting tin.
  • In a small bowl, mix the fennel seeds, Mediterranean seasoning, sweet smoked paprika and olive oil. Season well with salt and pepper. Pour into the roasting tin and toss everything together well.
  • Roast for 45 minutes, until everything is cooked through, golden and bubbling.
  • Squeeze the orange juice from the oranges over the meat and vegetables (being careful not to burn your fingers) and serve.


  • If you can’t get Mediterranean seasoning (I use Barts), switch to Herbes de Provence, dried mixed herbs or oregano.
  • Add a ½ – 1 teaspoon cayenne and spicy chorizo for older kids and adults who like a bit of kick to their food.
  • Switch the chorizo for chunks of halloumi or feta cheese to change things up.

    My daughter enjoyed the chirzo which was a suprise, I thought it would be too spicy. She’s loves chicken and sweet potato but unfortunately my kids didn’t like the veg or beans. My husband and I enjoyed it all.
