Sticky Pomegranate & Winter Roots Chicken Tray Bake

This is that elusive dish that is everything made in one tray, takes no time or hands on hassle to put together - it is perfect for the holidays, family chilled meal or double up and feed many mouths easily. It’s a one tray, one bake wonder that feeds the whole family, but is impressive enough to produce for a dinner party, the sticky marinade is just a crazy flavour bomb.
    • 1 chicken, jointed into 8 piecesOR 2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 chicken drumsticks
    • 8 small onions, halved
    • 3 sweet potatoes
    • 4 medium carrots
    • 4 tbsp olive oil
    • ½ pomegranate, seeds bashed out, to serveMarinade
    • 1 tbsp sumac
Ground Sumac
    • 2 tbsp zatar
If you don't have it's easily found from spice shops or supermarkets or click and shop! Zatar dried spice blend
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
Serves one family of 5 Preheat the Oven to 200. X1 Large (30cm x 30cm) baking tray Whisk together the marinade in a mug or jar with a fork until combined well. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl, or container and pour over the marinade so everything is covered. Leave to absorb the flavours while you prep the vegetables. *Ideally this is done the night before and marinades overnight in the fridge. Chop the carrots into 2 inch chunks, halve the sweet potatoes (unpeeled) and slice each half into 4 wedges lengthways. Tip these, along with the chopped onions into a bowl and toss in the 4 tbsp olive oil, adding a pinch of sea salt flakes. In the big roasting dish (use one for veg and one for chicken if you don’t have one this size) place the vegetables round the edge, so there is room for everything in one layer. Then tip the chicken pieces into the middle, and scrape all the juicy marinade on top to smother each piece of chicken. Roast in the oven at 200 for 10 minutes. Then give the tray a shuffle and turn the oven down to 180 and roast for a further 20-30 minutes until everything is really sticky, caramelized and golden brown. Serve with a simple green salad.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
