Our answer

Nigella's Italian Roast Chicken With Peppers And Olives (from NIGELLISSIMA) roasts a whole chicken nestled in a bed of leeks, olives and (bell/sweet) peppers. It is quite difficult to find a replacement for the peppers as they soften and intensify in sweetness and it may be better to try one of Nigella's traybakes, such as the Chicken Traybake With Bitter Orange And Fennel or the Spanish Chicken With Chorizo And Potatoes, instead.

Red onions that have been peeled, halved and then cut lengthways into wedges may be an alternative, but you would need to watch the onions carefully as the onion layers fan out during cooking and could burn more easily than the chunks of peppers.
