Ingredients:

• 2 bunches baby (Dutch) carrots, trimmed, scrubbed
• 1 tablespoons olive oil

• 1 garlic clove, crushed
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 2 x 400g cans chickpeas, rinsed, drained

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spread the carrots on a baking tray in a single layer. Season, then drizzle over 1 tbs oil and 2 tbs water. Roast for 10-12 minutes until the carrots soften slightly
2. Meanwhile, lightly oil a chargrill pan with the remaining olive oil. Heat over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and rub with the sumac. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side until browned.
3. Remove the tray from the oven, turn the carrots then place the chicken on top. Roast for a further 10-12 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
