Ingredients

Method

1.

Preheat oven to 200C (180C fan forced). Spray a 2.5L capacity shallow ovenproof dish with cooking spray. Add the onion, tomatoes, olives, garlic, dried herbs and basil, mix gently to combine.

Use a wooden spoon to gently mix ingredients in the pan.
2.

Place chicken breasts on top of the tomatoes, pushing down to nestle into the sauce. Season the chicken breasts with a little salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 30 min, turning chicken over, halfway through cooking time.

Arrange chicken in a single layer.
3.

Sprinkle the chicken with combined cheeses and season with crackled black pepper. Return to oven for a further 10-15 min or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Garnish with fresh basil leaves. Serve with your favourite side salad or steamed greens and fresh bread.

Simply bake and then serve with a salad.
