I love cooking but quite often I just don’t have the time to fuss around for hours yet I still want fresh, flavourful food.
A traybake is ideal for when you have had a busy day and you don’t want loads of washing up or standing at the stove. This recipe is a really simple one using fresh, summery ( yes it’s still Summer..kind of ) ingredients.
You will need:
Chicken thighs ( depending on how many of you are eating)
A handful of fresh basil leaves
A mixture of tomatoes, whole or sliced in half
A ball of mozzarella, thickly sliced
Garlic oil or olive oil with some crushed garlic
Sea salt and crushed black pepper
Place your thighs in a roasting or baking tray, not too big so you can keep the ingredients snugly together. Add your tomatoes and basil, season and then drizzle over your oil – about a tbsp should do it.
Serve immediately with the sides of your choice, we chose sweetcorn, baked sweet potatoes and roasted shallots. Delicious. Simple. Quick.
What are your go to easy meals for busy days?
