    Tips from Home Chefs

    Prepare the ingredients & bake the trays
    1 Prepare the ingredients & bake the trays

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Between the two trays, evenly divide the seasoned chicken, spinach, drained chickpeas, pasta, spice blend, tomatoes, artichokes, raisins, and peppers. Stir to combine. Add 1/4 cup of water to each tray. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine. Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until the pasta is tender and the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the oven.

    2 Make the romesco mayo & serve your dish

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the romesco sauce and mayonnaise; season with salt and pepper. Serve the baked trays topped with the romesco mayo and almonds. Enjoy!
