Smoky Paprika Chicken Tray Bake Recipe – Easy & Budget Friendly Healthy Dinner Ideas With Roast Chicken Legs and vegetables.

Smoky Paprika Chicken Tray Bake just out of the oven

This Chicken Tray Bake Recipe is wonderfully simple, easy to adapt to the ingredients you have to hand and, best of all, is a firm favourite with the family.

Chicken Legs/Drumsticks are our favourite piece of chicken, you could use whichever piece you like instead or even chop a whole chicken into pieces to enjoy in your chicken tray bake.

This dish also happens to be really budget friendly – the package of chickens I used was under 3 Euro/3.40USD and easily fed the whole family.

Chicken tray bake vegetables

I also chose to include in season vegetables that were economical too. You can use whatever vegetables are in season wherever you are.

You can serve this chicken tray bake with your carby side of choice, by including potatoes in the tray or cooking up some rice or even pasta.
