Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Bring a large saucepan of water to boil. Finely chop the garlic. Pick the thyme leaves. In a large bowl, combine the garlic, thyme, tomato paste (see ingredients), Italian herbs (see ingredients), brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, salt (for the chicken) and a good drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken thigh, season with pepper and toss to coat.


Chop the capsicum (see ingredients) into 1cm strips. Cut the red onion (see ingredients) into 2cm wedges.


In a baking dish lined with baking paper, place the capsicum, onion and cherry tomatoes (see ingredients). Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread out evenly. Arrange the chicken thigh over the veggies and bake until the veggies are tender and the chicken is cooked through, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside. TIP: The chicken and veggies may char, but this just adds to the flavour!


While the chicken is baking, peel the potato and cut into 2cm chunks. Cook the potato in the boiling water and cook until easily pierced with a knife, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan. Add the butter, milk and salt (for the mash) to the potato. Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Cover to keep warm.


While the potato is cooking, trim the green beans. In the last 10 minutes of veggie cook time, remove the oven tray and add the green beans to any free space on the tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Return the tray to the oven and bake until tender, 10 minutes.


Slice the chicken. Divide the potato mash, green beans, Italian chicken and veggies between plates. Spoon over the juices from the baking dish.
