Mains: Chicken and Potato Mess

Chicken and Potato Mess

Quick, Easy and Tasty

1 kg potatoes - preferably new- use small potatoes or cut larger ones up
6 Chicken thighs - preferably boned but unboned is ok if it’s what you happen to have in the fridge. Chicken breast would do. Remember to adjust cooking time for different cuts.
3 Cups Cherry or 4-5 large Tomatoes, Chopped 
Basil, Large Bunch
4 T Olive Oil
2 T Balsamic Vinegar
2 Large Red Onions, Chopped
4 or 5 Cloves Garlic, Peeled
Couple Grinds of Pepper
Pinch Salt

1. Boil potatoes in water with the oxo cube until almost cooked. I like how the oxo cube adds flavor to the potatoes, but the water is ideal for later on in the recipe so do not discard.

2. In a heavy based roasting dish (with lid) over a medium heat add 3 good glugs of olive oil. Brown chicken and turn off heat. Add particularly cooked potatoes and a 1/2 cup of the water.

3. Place chicken and the rest of the ingredients in a ovenproof baking dish with a lid.

4. Bake for 40 minutes.
