Mozzarella and tomato chicken
- Organic chicken breasts
- Mozzarella (1 handful, grated)
- Basil (1 tsp)
- Oregano (1 tbsp)
- Rosemary (1 tsp)
- Thyme (1 tsp)
- Chilli flakes (1 tsp)
- Tomato passata (250g)
- Tomato puree (1 tsp)
- Smoked paprika (1 tsp)
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
- Fire roasted sweet pepper (1, diced)
- Fresh parsley (to garnish)
Begin by heating a pan with oil to medium heat. Season your chicken with the half of the Italian mix and smoked paprika and add to the pan. Fry until the chicken has browned on both sides and then add the passata with the rest of the Italian mix and mix.
Add the diced sweet pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Pre-heat the oven to 200c and cook the chicken for another 5 minutes until the passata turns slightly thicker.
Add a handful of mozzarella on top of both chicken breasts and pop in the middle of the oven for 5 minutes until golden brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven, check the chicken is cooked thoroughly and serve straight away.
