Probably because Alara’s normal school has been on break, so we have sent her to an art class in the afternoons.
The art class is actually really great. She is going to an artist studio with some other kids, and they are making art together. She is loving it!
The only problem for me is that the class finishes at five, and then we come home for a bit, and then head out to get Seyfi from work.
This time lapse means that I need to be cooking something that is a bit forgiving… Something that can sit for a bit and still be delicious.
This chicken cacciatore is just that. Easy to throw together, than throw it in the oven, pull it out and it can rest.
Here’s the recipe:
4 chicken legs
1 red pepper, sliced a bit large
1 onion, largely sliced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, sliced
5 cloves garlic, smashed
1 can of tomatoes
1 cup of tomato sauce (plain)
1 Tbsp basil
1 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 200C
In a big oven dish mix all the ingredients together, covering the chicken.
Cover with tin foil.
Bake for twenty minutes.
Remove the cover and bake for twenty more minutes.
I served it with rice, but I’m sure pasta would be nice too.
