2 Servings


  • 20 cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 2 large chicken breasts skinless
  • 1 red onion chopped finely
  • 1 courgette chopped finely
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 100 ml balsamic vinegar
  • ½ bunch fresh basil roughly chopped
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 70 g reduced fat mozzarella


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C. Spray a large frying pan with a few sprays of low calorie cooking spray and heat. Season the chicken breasts with plenty of salt and pepper and fry for 6 minutes on each side then set aside

  2. Using the same frying pan (don't wipe) fry the onion and garlic until the onion starts to soften. Add the Balsamic, tomatoes and courgette (they'll bubble and that's ok) cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently

  3. Add the basil and return the chicken to the pan, cook for 3 minutes on each side

  4. Put the pan in the oven (or in an oven proof dish if your pan isn't suitable) and set a timer for 15 minutes
  5. After 15 minutes place the cheese on top of the chicken and cook for a further 5-10 minutes. Use a thermometer to check your chicken breast is cooked through before serving (needs to get to 74°C for a couple of minutes)

  6. Serve with greens and your choice of pasta/rice or cous cous
