2 teaspoons dried thyme, rosemary, basil
8 black olives
1 sweet potato
12 asparagus tips
1/2 Yellow pepper

Method Mozzarella and Tomato Chicken precooked

  1. Preheat oven to 220
    Grease a baking pan with some olive oil (I like to use garlic oil for this recipe but you can you which ever you prefer)
  2. Peel a large sweet  potato and cut into chunky wedges
  3. Place you two chicken breast onto a chopping board and make 6 individual slits width ways across the top of each breast.
  4. Chop the cherry tomatoes in half (I have used both red and yellow tomatoes) and place a half tomatoes in every alternative slit.
  5. Cut the mozzarella slices in half length ways and place the halves in the remaining slits on the chicken, so that you have alternative tomato, mozzarella, tomato.
  6. Place the chicken breast into the centre of the cooking pan and surround with the sweet potato, asparagus, black olives, yellow pepper and remaining tomatoes halves.
  7. Sprinkle some olive oil and the mixed herbs on top.
  8. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.
