Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, coat the chicken in flour and spices to taste, then heat the oil and shallow-fry until golden brown. Drain the potatoes and lightly press them with the base of a glass so they burst open slightly.

Spoon all the ingredients into an ovenproof dish, drizzle olive oil over, season to taste with salt and pepper, and bake for 30-40 minutes until aromatic and cooked through. Serve with a green salad.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
