Syns per serving:
Add 6 Syns if not using Cheddar as a Healthy Extra on Original and Extra Easy.
This Italian-inspired dish gives you all the taste of cheesy pizza, for Free! Using chicken or turkey as a base saves on doughy Syns and provides a real deep-pan meat feast! Alternatively top a jacket potato or omelette.
½ small red onion, chopped
½ red pepper, chopped
1 small clove of garlic, crushed
1 tbsp stock
2 vine tomatoes, skinned and chopped
1 tbsp tinned tomatoes
1 tsp tomato puree
1 tsp oregano
1 chicken fillet
Low calorie cooking spray
40g low fat hard cheese, grated
1 cherry tomato, halved
Fresh basil, roughly chopped
Place the onion, pepper and garlic in a small saucepan with the stock and simmer for a few minutes.
Add the vine tomatoes to the pan, then the tinned tomatoes, tomato purée and oregano. Cut the chicken fillet in half horizontally, being careful not to cut it the whole way through. Fold open to make a butterfly shape. Spray a non-stick frying pan lightly with low calorie cooking spray then fry the chicken to give colour on both sides. Place the chicken on a baking tray and place in the oven, 220ºC/200°C Fan/Gas 7 for 15-20 minutes.
When cooked, place the tomato mixture on top of the chicken. Add the cheese and sprinkle with basil. Place the cherry tomato on the top, then put back in the oven for 5 minutes.
Tip: Serve with a huge crispy salad, a jacket potato or roasted vegetables.
