I just love tomatoes, they are rich in Vitamins C and A and provide the body with lycopene, a valuable source of nutrition which prevents damage to the cells causing cancers. They come in all different varieties which vary in colour, size and flavour.
Over the weekend i made Baked Chicken in Tomato and here is my quick and easy recipe.
Baked Chicken in Tomato
1 eggplant, trimmed and sliced in 1cm rounds
1 x 250g punnet cherry tomatoes (mixed varieties)
1 x 400g bottle organic tomato pasta sauce
4 organic chicken drumsticks
In a large baking dish, layer eggplants and tomatoes. Pour tomato sauce over and add chicken drumsticks, turn to coat in the sauce.
Bake in a hot oven (180C) for 1 hour until chicken flesh meat is falling off the bone and vegetables are tender.
Spoon a large ladle of vegetables into a shallow bowl and top with two chicken drumsticks. Add more sauce and serve hot.
(Optional) Top with shredded basil and grated Parmesan.
Happy Cooking and Eating !
