Chicken Topped With Chunky Salsa

Chicken can be a little monotonous from time to time. Here's a very easy to make your chicken breasts a little more interesting! Simple ingredients, delicious flavours! Serves 2.


2 good quality chicken breasts
4 medium sized tomatoes, peeled, deseeded and roughly chopped
1 red pepper, roughly chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1-2 red chillis, finely chopped
A bunch of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

1. Place the chicken breasts into an oven proof dish
2. Drizzle a couple of tbsp of water in the bottom of the dish, to prevent the chicken from sticking
3. Put the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly
4. Spoon the salsa onto the chicken breasts evenly and pop them into a preheated oven, 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Remove after 40 mins and check the chicken has cooked through before tucking in.


 - Serve with a good salad or some cous cous. Or both!
 - Season the salsa in the bowl, to taste.
 - The photo of the chicken was taken before I put it in the oven!

Try Try Try!
