A quick little recipe
To celebrate this day, I got out a recipe book: What's For Dinner, to search for a meal, that wasn't a readymade or takeaway! And this Italian Chicken Bake sounds PERFECT:
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp. of olive oil
3 free-range skinless chicken breasts, diced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tsp. of dried oregano
2x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes
1x 125g ball mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
50g of sliced pepperoni (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (fan), 200 degrees Celsius, gas mark 6. In a frying pan, fry the onion in the oil till translucent.
2. Add the diced chicken and fry, browning them for 5 minutes. Then, add the garlic and oregano and fry for 1 - 2 minutes before pouring in tomatoes. Let it gently bubble for another 5 minutes.
3. Pop the lot into an ovenproof dish and top it first with the mozzarella and then the pepperoni.
4. Bake for 25 minutes and season and enjoy!
I haven't actually tried this yet, but it sounds like an awesome take on a pizza! Let me know if you try it out!
