We do love a one-pot recipe here at Reveal - just chuck everything in the pot, cook, enjoy and there's not too much washing up! So that's why we had to share this spicy chicken drumsticks and butternut bake.

This hearty dish is a great easy to make evening meal and teams tender chicken with butternut squash, cherry tomatoes and cannellini beans – so it's a great way for getting a couple of your five-a-day's too. And it's a given a kick with the addition of spicy Nando's sauce, too. Yum!
