Baked Chicken with Tomato and Onion Smoor


Jan 30th 2012, 10:38

Serves 4

One-dish meals are always a great choice for an evening meal. They’re quick to prepare and there’s hardly any washing up needed afterwards.

6 chicken portions
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
60g butter
30ml olive oil
1 tin (410g) Rhodes Tomato and Onion Mix
Pinch of sugar
4 baby marrows, grated
3 carrots, grated
Handful fresh herbs (parsley, thyme and oreganum), coarsely chopped
Extra butter
Mozzarella cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a medium-sized oven dish with oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the butter and oil and fry the chicken until golden brown. Place in the prepared oven dish. Mix the tomato and onion mix with the sugar and pour over the chicken. Mix the baby marrows, carrots and herbs and sprinkle over the tomato mix. Dot with extra butter and bake for 30 minutes or until done. Sprinkle the cheese over and bake for several minutes.

* Replace the Rhodes Tomato and Onion Mix with any Rhodes chopped tomatoes, especially those containing other flavours.
* If you’re running out of time, replace the chicken portions with filleted chicken pieces cut in slices, which will save on cooking time.
