Jazz up chicken breasts with an Italian tomato sauce with rosemary and garlic, baked like a casserole - it's a healthy choice, too

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this meal - will be cooking it again. Next time I may bake for a little longer but wrapped up in foil in order to keep the chicken as moist as possible.

Nice and simple, I used Oregano instead of rosemary and it was delicious!!

I used passata and added chopped fresh tomatoes and black olives - it was great.

This was very easy to make and tasted lovely. However, as Malika mentioned above, the amount of rosemary is far too much. I used 2tsp and it really was enough. Served with carrots, peas and jacket potatoes.

Overwhelmed by the rosemary. Sorry won't be making it again.
