I'm always on the look out for tasty recipes that both my one and three year will eat. It's a bonus if it works for my husband and me too. On a recent visit, my mother in law made this chicken and tomato casserole. Everyone enjoyed it so I thought I should give it a go.

It's originally from a Woman & Home magazine that was passed down from her mother. The torn out page is well worn from lots of use.

As with all good recipes, it's been adapted over the years and I have also made my own tweaks. When I'm cooking anything saucy for my kids, I like to sneak in a few extra vegetables. I've added mushrooms but you could easily pop in some diced carrots, peas or broccoli.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 2.5 hours
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
4 chicken quarters
Plain flour
Oil
Knob of butter
1 onion
1 stick celery
2 tins chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée
1/2 green pepper
40g button Mushrooms
6 olives
2 cloves garlic

Method
Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan.

Lightly dust the chicken quarters in flour and then fry in the oil until golden, turning occasionally.

Remove the chicken from the oil and place into a casserole dish.
Slice the pepper, dice the celery and quarter the mushrooms.
Add the green pepper, mushrooms and celery to the casserole dish.

In the pan that you fried the chicken, add the sliced onion and garlick and cook until soft.
Chop up the olives and add to the onion along with the tinned tomatoes and tomato paste.

Heat through and then pour over the chicken.

Place a lid on the casserole dish or cover with foil.
Place in the oven for 2.5 hours at which point the chicken will be so tender it just falls off the bone.

As there's no salt added to this recipe it's great for kids. You might need the remove the chicken from the bone for younger kids and it also blends up well into a purée for tiny tots.

Serve with boiled new potatoes, rice or cous cous.
