4 chicken breasts
2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes
Bunch of basil, leaves picked
1 garlic bulb, broken into cloves, skin on
1 lemon, quartered
Olive oil
1 dried red chilli
8 slices of pancetta, or thin-sliced smoked streaky bacon

Handful black olives (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Place the chicken, tomatoes, basil, garlic cloves and olives in a deep roasting tray.

Add a generous drizzle of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper and the chilli.

Combine the ingredients well and place in the oven to bake, turning the chicken after 30 minutes.

After a further 30 minutes, add the pancetta or bacon and lemon wedges on top of the chicken and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with a lovely green salad.
