Mediterranean Chicken Bake

Often I get inspirations of looking at pictures of food. Last week I saw on a website a lovely looking dish I didn't know what was in it, as there was no recipe but just the visual gave me the idea to make this dish.

As you know I love my mamas pork in the oven, so the basis of this recipe is from that, but decided to give it a lighter twist with the addition of chicken and jazz it up with some Mediterranean flavours!

As for the dish itself, I made this on Monday thinking I could get a few lunches and dinners out of it. But in usual Lulabella style I gave it to my sister and her husband for their dinner!

You will need:

Bunch of basil leaves torn
Salt and pepper for seasoning

Preheat oven to 200 degrees

Spray a heavy bottomed oven dish with oil (I use my lasagne dish) and start to add your ingredients

First layer the onion and courgette, top with the pepper, then add the chicken

Place the par boiled potatoes on top of the chicken and scatter the basil leaves over

Pour the passata on top, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle of oregano

Cover with foil, and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the chicken and vegetables are all cooked through but still have a crunch.
