I have to say one of the best things about working with Twinings is getting to taste the amazing new teas they produce. I’ve always been an elderflower lover and to this day still if it is on the drinks menu 9/10 I will order it so when I was asked to create a recipe with their new Apple and Elderflower Loose Leaf Tea I was beyond thrilled.

This apple elderflower chicken tray bake is a great midweek meal.
Par boiled carrots and butternut squash are roasted alongside sweet and sharp apples and chicken breasts which is dressed in a delicious apple elderflower marinade, before being roasted. Pecans add crunch and tender stem broccoli add colour. I am not ashamed to say I ate 2+ portions of this and was reluctant to share with the family because it was that good! PLUSSSS NO CARBS! Another excuse why I should of demolished this single handedly.
