  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200’C, fan 180’C. Put the chicken thighs, peppers and lemon wedges in a large roasting tin. Sprinkle over 2 tsp oregano, 2 tbsp olive oil and season. Mix everything together and roast for 35 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, grate the cucumber and tip into a sieve. Squeeze out the excess water, then transfer to a bowl. Stir in ½ tsp oregano, the yogurt and ¼ of the crushed garlic. Stir well and chill until ready to serve.
  3. Whisk 1 tbsp oil, ½ tsp oregano and the remaining crushed garlic in a large bowl and season. Add the pitta pieces and toss to coat in the oil.
  4. After 35 mins of cooking, scatter the feta over the chicken traybake. Cook for 10 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the feta is golden. Spread the pitta pieces on a separate baking tray and bake for 5-10 mins, until crisp. Scatter over the traybake and serve with the tzatziki.
