Chicken bake with Birch & Waite green goddess dressing

At the end of a busy day, the last thing I feel like doing is peeling vegetables, chopping meat and preparing a delicious sauce. This is why I absolutely love this chicken bake recipe with Birch and Waite green goddess dressing.  It’s the definition of gentle nutrition, and I can throw everything on the tray (using whatever vegetables I have in the fridge), coast everything in the gorgeous green sauce packed with flavour and pop it in the oven while I jump in the shower ready to slump on the couch and decompress. 

How long does green goddess dressing last?

This Birch and Waite dressing lasts for up to 8 weeks when stored in the fridge. If you’re making your own green herby dressing it will last up to 2 weeks.

This recipe is just one idea to use the delicious green goddess dressing. You could also use it in fresh salads, on roast potatoes or a potato salad, or mixed in with mayonnaise for a zesty twist on a crispy chicken burger. 

How to make a chicken bake 

This is honestly one of the easiest recipes ever. Either use a whole raw chicken and break it down into separate pieces or buy 4 Maryland portions. Add the chicken to a lined baking tray and any vegetables you like. I personally love tiny potatoes for a carb fix and like using up any leftover limp-looking veg at the bottom of my fridge. Lastly, coat everything with the green dressing, season with salt and pepper and a generous glug of olive oil and bake in a preheated oven until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside! 

For an extra veg hit, I like to serve this with some freshly cooked greens, or if I need more carbs, I add a slice of sourdough to soak up the herby juices.
