Summer Herb Chicken with Stuffed Tomatoes
A delicious roast chicken served with stuffed tomatoes brings all the flavours of summer to the table. The chicken and the tomatoes both cook at the same oven temperature. Pop the chicken in the oven to start and add the tomatoes about 15 – 30 minutes before the chicken is cooked. This will allow time for the chicken to rest before serving. Serve with some crusty bread and a green salad.
