This is a great meal if you hate washing up but don’t mind chopping. 🙂 It’s a traybake so just toss the ingredients in the tray, and in the oven it goes.

Ok, I admit, the kale is missing from the photos because even though I liked the crispy kale on top it did cover everything else in the tray, and the rest of the family voted against using the poor thing anyway.
