Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

Serves: 1


Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 200g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • Fresh basil, chopped roughly
  • 150mls vegetable stock*
  • 125g skinless chicken breast
  • 30g mozzarella cheese, sliced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion softens. Add the chopped tomatoes, basil leaves and stock then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, lightly pound the chicken breast to increase the surface area and place the chicken in an oven-proof dish. Cover the chicken with the sauce from the pan and add slices of mozzarella to the dish, keeping them in a single layer. Transfer to the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through (chicken should be white throughout) and the cheese is melted.
