Preheat the oven to 200ºc. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and spices and spread a little olive oil over. Mix with the vegetables and divide between two baking bags. Dot each bag with a little butter, add 30ml water and close the bags.

Snip 6 holes in each bag and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until cooked. Take care when you open the bags as the steam is very hot.
