Kitchen Towel

Preparation Time / 35 minutes
Cooking Difficulty / Level 1
Serves 4



1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (to roast the potatoes and chicken.) Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!

2. Roast the potatoes: Wash and dry all produce. Cut the potatoes into ½-inch cubes. Toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the centre of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until the potatoes are golden-brown, 25-28 min.

3. Prep: Meanwhile, coarsely grate the zucchini. Remove some of the excess liquid by placing the grated zucchini in the middle of a clean kitchen towel; twist the towel and squeeze over the sink. Transfer the zucchini to a medium bowl.

4. Bake the chicken: Add the Parmesan and Italian seasoning to the zucchini. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken on a second parchment-lined baking sheet. Divide the zucchini mixture over each chicken. (TIP: The topping will be loose!) Bake in the centre of the oven until the chicken is cooked through and the top is golden, 20-22 min. (TIP: Inserting a thermometer into the cooked chicken should display an internal temperature of 175°F.)

5. Make the citrus-balsamic dressing: Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the marmalade, vinegar, mustard and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss in the spinach.

6. Finish and serve: Divide the roasted potatoes between plates. Serve with the zucchini-topped chicken and the salad on the side. Enjoy!
