Baked chicken and peppers with almonds

Meals like this are just the best when you're not in the mood for cooking. It's not really cooking, just a bit of chopping, mixing and assembling ingredients. The recipe is another from the Goodfood website, which I find a godsend when you are stuck for ideas. I left out the almonds as I didn't think they would be necessary. Also my husband has just had a brace fitted and is struggling with textures of food. 

Serves 4

500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3 medium red onions, cut into thick wedges
500g small red potatoes, cut into thick slices
2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into thick slices
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tsp each ground cumin, smoked paprika and fennel seeds, slightly crushed
3 tbsp olive oil
zest and juice 1 lemon
50g whole blanched almonds, roughly chopped
170g tub 0% Greek yogurt, to serve
small handful parsley or coriander, chopped, to serve

Heat oven to 200C. Place the chicken, onions, potatoes and peppers in a large bowl and season. in another bowl, mix together the garlic, spices, oil, and lemon zest and juice. Pour this over everything and spread the mixture between 2 baking trays.
Roast for 40 mins, turning over after 20 mins, until the chicken is cooked through. Add the almonds for the final 8 mins of cooking. Serve in bowls with a big dollop of Greek yogurt and some chopped parsley or coriander.
