Chicken Ratatouille

Method

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Place a large sauté pan on medium heat. Season chicken with salt, then to the pan add oil and chicken, skin side down, and cook for 2 minutes to seal. Turn over and seal on the other side. Remove and reserve on a plate.

In the same pan add the onion and capsicum and cook for a few minutes to soften. Now add the eggplant, zucchini and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Stir the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes on high heat before adding the bouquet garni and tomatoes. 

Arrange the chicken pieces on top, cover with a lid and cook in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Take the lid off for the last 5 minutes to crisp up the chicken.
