Since I joined Slimming World last week I’ve been trying out a few new recipes and I hope it means I won’t get stuck in a food rut like I usually do when trying to lose weight! This recipe is a great alternative to a dough based pizza, and it’s all free on SW (30g cheese is a Healthy Extra)! It’s also great for the kids though and is fairly quick to prepare. It’s a nice change and really does taste yummy with lovely golden cheese.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 250g passata
  • 120g cheddar cheese
  • basil (I used dried but you can use fresh if desired)
  • Preheat oven to gas 5/375F/190C.
  • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten them.
  • Place on a baking tray and divide the passata between them, coating the whole top of the breasts.
  • Sprinkle basil on then top with cheese.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is golden & bubbling.
  • Enjoy!

    I keep seeing these and thinking how nice they look. Will have to give it a go I think.

    1. It was soooo good!

  3. Ooo now that looks lovely! For some reason I never have any luck when cooking chicken breast and always find it goes dry and chewy. Perhaps I should have a go at this cos the sauce must keep it from drying out?! Thanks for sharing and good luck with the diet!

    1. Oh yes it stays really moist. Thanks!

  4. I love this idea, it looks really tasty and the chicken is a healthy base
