  • Total Time 1 Hour
  • Spice Level Mild
  • Servings 4
  • Ingredients 11


  • 1 large courgette, halved lengthways and chopped (225g)
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 chicken breast fillets (600g)
  • 1 sachet Old El Paso™ Sweet Paprika & Garlic Seasoning Mix for Tacos
  • 1 x 226g jar Old El Paso™ Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
  • 50g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander
  • Lime wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C for fan assisted ovens), gas mark 6.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the courgette, peppers and onion wedges with half the oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spread in a single layer on a large baking tray.
  3. In the same bowl, mix the chicken, remaining oil and the taco seasoning mix and stir to completely coat. Place the chicken on the tray nestled in between the vegetables. Roast for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the tray from the oven and gently stir the vegetables. Roast for a further 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (check by cutting through the thickest part of one fillet – the juices should run clear with no pinkness) and the vegetables are tender and lightly charred in places.
  5. Spoon the salsa over the chicken and vegetables and scatter over the cheese and coriander. Serve with lime wedges.
