Prep Time

This easy, one-dish chicken dinner is like the top of a really good pizza - without the dough. It takes just a few minutes to throw together and is really tasty. As the tomatoes break down, they release their juices to make a light, fragrant tomato sauce, and the chicken soaks up the flavours of the other ingredients.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

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

Lightly season the chicken with salt

Place a dry, wide-base pan (with a matching lid) over a medium-high heat and, once hot, add the chicken (skin-side down) and cook for 5 min or until golden and crispy, without turning

2 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

Once golden, transfer the chicken, skin-side up, into an ovenproof dish

Discard the oil from the chicken pan but leave behind any bits at the bottom for step 7 (to lend extra flavour to the bulgur)

3 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

Peel and finely slice the garlic

Toss the whole cherry tomatoes, olives, garlic and oregano in a bowl

Trickle over about 20ml/2.5 tbsp (40ml/5 tbsp) olive oil (preferably extra virgin) and toss the tomatoes again to coat

4 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

Tip the dressed tomatoes over the chicken, pushing them down well with a spoon so that everything is well mixed together

5 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

De-link the chorizo and slice each one in half lengthways

Peel and cut the onion(s) into 8 wedges through the root

Tip: This ensures that the onion layers stay together whilst cooking

Lay the salami and onion wedges over the chicken

6 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

Tear the mozzarella over the top

Bake for 30-35min, or until the chicken is cooked through, the onions are charred around the edges and the cheese is bubbling and melted

Once the chicken has been cooking for 15 min, boil a kettle

7 Tom Kerridge's Chicken

Add the bulgur wheat to the reserved chicken pan with 180ml (360ml) boiled water, cover with a lid and place on a medium-low heat

Simmer for 5 min or until almost all the water is absorbed

Remove from the heat and leave covered for 10 min or until all water has absorbed
