My variation on a recipe seen in The Times Saturday magazine, 21st may 2022.

A special looking meal that is simple to prepare.

Keep the basic ingredients like the chicken, garlic and mozzarella cheese, and add other ingredients of your choosing, just don't go easy on the garlic 😆

Roasted to perfection!
The basic ingredients, plus an olive branch or two!

Chef's notes

This is a great recipe for using up 'volunteers' from the fridge. I would normally have used bottled sweet peppers but had run out,. so doubled-up on tomatoes instead. Use sherry, red wine or even half a left-over can of lager just to moisten the dish. A chopped up fennel bulb would be good too.
