I do a meal for DH and me which is a tray bake chicken pieces thing - chicken wings and thighs, peppers, red onions and mushrooms - which I drizzle with chilli oil and is lovely.

However, we are having friends around and I was thinking about doing it for them, but am aware that the veggie content isn't that high ??. What extra veggies would you do?

Thanks for any ideas.

I think I'd do green beans, sugar snap peas, something crunchy on the side.

Green beans are a great idea, thanks.

Cavolo nero, never heard of that! Off to google...

If you have a chargrill pan, I'd do chargrilled courgette or asparagus drizzled with good olive oil.
Or oven roasted broccoli with pine nuts and Parmesan.

Cremo - oven roasted broccoli sounds lovely. How do I do it?

Baby corn on the cob, sugar snap peas, maybe a fancy salad with pears, cheese, dressing etc (would need to google...)
