  • 2 chicken breasts divide into smaller pieces if required
  • 1 small squash
  • 1 fennel fronds removed, de-cored and sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • small handful thyme leaves

For the maple ginger dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 cm ginger grated
  • 1 garlic clove finely diced or minced
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper optional


  • Preheat the oven to 200C.
  • Make the maple ginger dressing by combining all the ingredients and stirring well.
  • Arrange the squash, fennel and blueberries on a baking tray and drizzle over half the dressing. Toss to combine. Add the chicken breasts to the tray and spoon over the remaining dressing. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked through (internal temperature of 165F).
  • Garnish with fresh thyme leaves, and then serve.


  • If your chicken breasts are on the larger side, then cut into smaller pieces.
  • Try to spoon the dressing over the chicken so that it acts as a marinade.
  • To ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked, use a meat thermometer and check for an internal temperature of 165F.
