Lightly grease a baking tray with rapeseed oil and pour the mixture onto the tray.

Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, give the mixture a stir half way through cooking.

You want the mixture to char a little so don’t panic if the edges get crispy and  blacken slightly.

Whilst the chicken is cooking prepare the yogurt dressing.

For the potatoes-

Place a frying pan on a medium heat with 2 tbsp of rapeseed oil.

Once the pan starts sizzling add the potatoes and give this a good stir, coating all of the potatoes in the spicy oil.
