Fabulously easy, yet totally impressive! You'll top succulent chicken with mozzarella and sun-dried tomato pesto and bake until golden. Serve with roasted herby potatoes and crisp courgette.

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

3 Mozzarella & Red Pesto Chicken, Roast Courgette

Add all of the vegetables to a baking tray (or two!)

Add the rosemary leaves, dried oregano, a pinch of salt and a generous drizzle of olive oil and give everything a good mix up

Put the tray in the oven for 25-30 min or until the vegetables are soft and the potatoes are crisp

Meanwhile, add the chicken breasts to a foil-lined baking tray (to avoid a cheesy mess!)

6 Mozzarella & Red Pesto Chicken, Roast Courgette

Top the chicken with the sun-dried tomato nut pesto and mozzarella

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper
