special chicken dish

I have recently been inspired to use the oven more in a quest to whip up a wider variety of different dishes for my daily lunch and dinner. Here's a special chicken dish concocted with whatever stuff that can be found in the kitchen after a grocery trip without any reference to any recipe! It's all about creativity and innovation hokay!!!

First step: pre-heat the oven at about 180 degrees celsius while you brown a few pieces of chicken (with the skin on!) in a pan together with chopped onions, spanish chorizo and stuffed olives.

Second step: when you are satisfied the chicken has turned a nice brown, transfer all of the stuff from the pan to a casserole pot.

Third step: add a can of peeled whole tomatoes (Coles was selling them at $3 for 3 cans!) and sprinkle some mixed herbs (thyme, basil, sage, rosemary etc). Cover the casserole pot and place into the oven.

Fourth step: while the dish is cooking in the oven, you can also quickly put together some eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, carrots and onions and place into the oven to cook at the same time. This will be your super healthy vegetarian sides.

Leave in oven for about an hour and a half at about 170 - 180 degrees celsius.

Fifth step: if the vege side is not enough for you, you can add some cous cous to the dish which was what I did. Of course you can add less butter than I did. ;p

And ta-dah!!! Super yums and easy to cook special chicken dish!

I am now such a pro in the kitchen!!! LOL
