Ingredients

  • Small head of broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 500g pack fresh gnocchi
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes with herbs
  • 150g pack mozzarella, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes, until just tender. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper and set aside. Add the gnocchi to the water and cook according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Put a large frying pan over a high heat and add the oil. Season the chicken all over, add to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes each side, until browned. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes until softened.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Add the tomatoes to the pan, quarter-fill the can with water and swish out into the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, until reduced slightly and the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the broccoli and gnocchi, season and heat through.
  4. Transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish. Scatter with the cheese and pop under the grill for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Serve with a green salad.
