I am happy to give you a recipe we all loved tonight, inspired by the one and only Jamie Oliver. The original recipe as I remember it, has all kinds of tomatoes, and chilies (somehow Jamie manages to throw a chili in almost every time he cooks). My recipe only has what I was able to find at the local supermarket – the most ordinary tomatoes, and some sun dried tomatoes for extra flavor. No chilies, because my little boy, who is only three and a half, wouldn’t eat spicy foods. And even if he did, it’s not the wisest thing to do to a child.
The recipe takes seconds to prepare: season the chicken, place in a deep pot, throw in some sliced tomatoes, garlic and basil, a drizzle of olive oil and you are good to go. Or good to wait, because it will take 1½ hours for the dish to cook, but when it does, the meat will simply melt into your mouth, and the crispy skin will make a gourmet chef jealous. The side dish was couscous – a family favorite. The recipe is simple – I will publish it soon. In the meanwhile, pair your chicken with roasted potatoes, or mash potatoes, rice and even pasta.
