20090812 Chicken Cacciatore
(SOURCE: BBC Good Food Magazine)
I halved the recipe ingredients and served this with garlic bread.
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
400g tin cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp mascarpone
handful fresh basil leaves
3 chicken breasts
1. Heat the oven to 190C. Fry the onion and garlic in about 1 tbsp olive oil until softened but not colored. Add the tomatoes, season, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until thick and glossy. Take off the heat and stir in the mastcarpone and half the basil, roughly torn.
2. Heat a little oil in a pan and fry the chicken on both sides until golden. Transfer to a baking dish and pour over the sauce. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Scatter over the rest of the basil.
