Chicken breast fillets sliced and served in delicious rosemary and garlic gravy with an array of roasted vegetables and dressed carrot leaves.
1. Set oven to 220°C. Trim baby carrots (reserve leaves), cut beetroots, sweet potato and tomatoes into wedges. Arrange on a lined oven tray (see notes) and toss with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes.

2. Rub chicken breasts with oil, salt and pepper. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat and cook chicken for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Set aside on a chopping board, reserve pan.

3. If using (see notes), trim reserved carrot leaves and place into a bowl of cold water. Set aside in the fridge.

4. Heat frypan over medium heat. Dice and add onion with 2 tbsp butter. Sauté for 5 minutes then add crushed garlic, chopped rosemary, 1 tbsp mustard, 1 stock cube and 1 tbsp flour. Gradually add 1 1/2 cups water, stirring. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, or until thickened.

5. Drain carrot tops and dress with 2 tsp olive oil and 1 tsp vinegar.
Slice chicken breasts and return to pan with gravy.

6. Serve chicken and gravy with roasted vegetables and dressed carrot leaves. Top with feta cheese and chopped parsley to taste.

Keep the beetroot separate on the tray if you want to prevent the colour bleeding on the other vegetables.

The carrot tops are delicious and make a perfect side salad. Step 3 & 5 are optional.
