It is the season for the tiny, delicious datterini tomatoes in Sicily so I decided to invent a simple chicken dish using them.  You can use cherry tomatoes if you can't get datterini.

For 4 people you need:

4 tablesp olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
8 chicken joints, skin on
500 gr datterini or cherry tomatoes
1 large red pepper, cut into strips
handful fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
seasalt & freshly ground black pepper

Soften the onion in the olive oil in a wide pan over low heat.  Then add the chicken pieces, turn up the heat and brown on all sides. Add the whole datterini, stir them around and squash them a bit with the back of your mixing spoon.  Then add the pepper strips and stir.  Add the basil and seasoning and cook, covered, over a low heat for about 50 mins. 

Buon appetito.

As ever the food looks so delicious, Welshcakes±

I bet they would create a scrumptious sauce should you want to have a bit of pasta or rice with the chicken.
It all looks scrumptious.

Thanks, jams. Thanks, Rosaria. That's an excellent idea.

Just in time for Martin's Mother Day visit. I'll add some rice, a fresh green salad. And he'll bring fancy ice cream. Plus flowers, as always. Thank you Welshcakes.
