Chicken with a pizza topping



(For the marinade)

1 tbsp olive oil

½ small glass of red wine

3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

3 sprigs fresh oregano (stem removed)

(For pizza sauce)

2-3 tomatoes

1-2 cloves of garlic (crushed)

1-2 tsp tomato puree

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp dried basil

1/2 medium onion (finely chopped)

A dash of red wine (or water)

A dash of Worcestershire sauce

3-4 chicken breasts (diced)

Grated cheese (I used Mild Cheddar and Red Leicester)

2 Pork sausages (cooked/optional)

Red and/or green peppers thinly sliced

Any other general pizza toppings you like such as pepperoni, sweetcorn etc)

Oil for frying


Mix the marinade ingredients together, add the chicken and marinade in fridge for around 2 hours (longer if you have time).

To make the pizza sauce, roughly chop your tomatoes and the onion and place in a food processor and blend.  Add all of the other pizza sauce ingredients.  You may need slightly more red wine/water depending on consistency,  (If it becomes too watery add more puree).

Fry chicken in a little oil until it turns white.  Place in an oven proof dish.

Pour the pizza sauce over the top.

Cover in grated cheese and then add your preferred pizza toppings (I used sliced sausages and red peppers).

Bake at 180c for approximately 25 minutes (until chicken is cooked through and topping is golden).

You can also grill the top if required.


You can also use whole chicken breasts, I used diced as that was what I had to use up at the time.
