Whack some oil in a pan and put it on medium heat. Pop your onion on top.
You can use whichever part of the chicken (I find thigh the tastiest) but breast is healthiest and lowest calorie. Go for skinless, or just take the skin off, as it’s a lot healthier.
Put the chicken amongst the onions.
Pop that in the mix, and toss in your carrots.
Now for the flavour. You’ll need some basil, Italian herb, and 2 pots of pasta sauce (Loyd Grossman’s Chargrilled Vegetables and Tomato & Basil).
Pour in both jars of the sauce
You’ll also need a can of chopped tomatoes. Pour this in, then mix the bottom with a tiny bit of water to get the most out of the can.
Squirt in some tomato purée into the can, again mix it with a dash of water, then pour it into the pan.
Add in a sachet of basil and Italian herbs.
Now add some pesto and tomato pesto. You can use as much as you want to create, there’s no set amount. I use quite a lot as I loveee pesto.
Add in the rest of the veggies
Now add generous amounts of salt and pepper.
Cover up the pan with tinfoil and turn the hob down to a low heat. Leave it to cook – it should be around 30 minutes, but check it and give it a poke at around 20 just in case.
Transfer it into a bowl to serve.
Make a nice salad to go with it. You can also make potatoes, pasta or rice, as they compliment the dish just as well, but it’s after 5pm and we all know what that means.
