  • 1 teaspoon thyme (fresh or dried)

  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside on a plate.
  3. Add onion, garlic, and celery to the pan, stirring for 5 minutes or until softened. Add capsicum, zucchini and eggplant and cook, stirring for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add tomatoes, fresh oregano, thyme and chicken to the pan and cook, covered until the chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

  • Pasta can be cooked when defrosting and heating the frozen Tuscan Chicken dish. Pasta can also be frozen with the meal.  
  • If you can only buy chicken breast, cut the chicken breast into thick strips to resemble chicken tenderloins.
