  • In a large roasting pan arrange chicken thighs, potatoes, onion wedges and whole baby red and yellow peppers. Brush everything with the herb mixture above or drizzle it all over, then toss to coat everything evenly.
  • Cut the juiced lemon into wedges and dot them around the pan. Do the same with fresh thyme and oregano sprigs if using.
