  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Peel and quarter the onions, breaking them into petals. Deseed and roughly chop the peppers into chunks, adding to a large roasting tray (35 x 40cm) as you go.
  2. Add the chicken thighs, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and rub everything with the Cajun-style seasoning. Roast for 40 minutes, or until the veg is soft and the chicken is golden and cooked through.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven, pour the rice around the chicken with 2 mugs of boiling kettle water (600ml) and poke in the corn on the cobs. Season with salt and pepper, add a few dashes of chilli sauce, and stir everything together. Cook at the bottom of the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden and the rice and chicken is cooked. Turn up the heat up to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 for the last 5 minutes to get a crispy top.
  4. Serve with dollops of yoghurt and chilli sauce.
