  4. Place the marinated butterflied chicken on top of the chopped veggies.Bake for 20 mins, baste with the reserved marinade, and then bake for another 20 mins or until chicken breast is cooked through.
  5. When chicken is cooked, remove from oven and set aside to rest.
  6. While the chicken is resting, stir fry the Tilda Wholegrain Basmati Rice in the frying pan for 3 mins.
  7. Toss through some of the roasted vegetables as the rice heats (keep shallots out and reserve for serving).
  8. Add in additional lemon zest and chopped parsley and serve on the table, family style.
