Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the sweet potato (unpeeled) into 2cm chunks. Thinly slice the capsicum. Slice the red onion (see ingredients) into 2cm wedges. Cut the carrot (unpeeled) into 1cm rounds. Divide the veggies between two oven trays lined with baking paper. Drizzle the veggies with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Cut the veggies to size so they cook in time.


While the veggies are roasting, combine the Aussie spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss to coat.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until browned, 2 minutes each side. When the veggies have 10 minutes cook time remaining, remove the bottom tray from the oven, push the veggies to one side and transfer the chicken to the tray. Bake until cooked through, 6-10 minutes (depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to rest.

TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.


Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the diced bacon until golden, 4-5 minutes.


In a large bowl, combine the roasted veggies, bacon and baby spinach leaves. Toss to coat and season with pepper.


Slice the chicken. Divide the bacon roasted veggie toss between plates and top with the chicken. Serve with the creamy pesto dressing.
