𝗥𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗲 for Chicken and Pumpkin Bake adapted from a recipe I found on Google.

𝗜𝗻𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀:
•800 g chicken thighs boneless, skinless
•1½ teaspoons dried oregano (fresh works too!)
•1 Lemon zest
•Olive oil
•Cheese for the top
•600-700 g butternut or pumpkin cut into 1-2cm cubes
•1 onion chopped
•1 red pepper
•1/2 Courgette
•4-5 cloves garlic chopped
•2 teaspoons fresh thyme chopped
•1 tin 400g tomatoes
•Smidge Tomato Puree
• 1 teaspoon sugar

𝗠𝗘𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗗
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper

2. Mix Oregano, lemon zest and 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large bowl, add chicken and toss to coat. Leave to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

3. In a roasting dish toss your chopped butternut, onion, tomato puree, Courgette, Pepper and garlic with thyme and a good drizzle of olive oil, and season. Roast for about 25 minutes or until slightly caramelised.

4. Stir tomatoes and sugar together in a pot and simmer for 5-10 minutes until slightly reduced. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a small glug of olive oil.

5. Season marinated chicken with salt. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Brown chicken in batches on both sides; you don’t have to cook it right through.

6. Arrange chicken, roast vegetables and olives (if using) in a large baking dish. Spoon over tomato sauce and scatter over mozzarella. Bake for 8-10 minutes, then switch to grill for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and golden.

7. Boil pasta and garlic bread according to instructions.

8. Serve as you please!
