WWDH - Balsamic and Tomato Roast Chicken

For Wednesday with Donna Hay this week, I selected Donna's Balsamic and Tomato Roast Chicken from p99 of Off the Shelf.  At the time it seemed like a good idea, then I didn't want to make it.  However, I am glad that I stuck to my guns and I did make it, because it was delish!

This dish could not be simpler to make.  You can find the recipe online here
There is no fussy pre-cooking of anything - it is basically a one pot dish.  Put slices of eggplant in the bottom of a greased roasting dish, put a chicken breast on top of each eggplant slice, and dress with a tomato, balsamic, caper and olive oil sauce.  Put in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes and voila - dinner is served:

Donna suggest serving this dish with an arugula salad - that is not my thing, so I served it with stir fried veges instead.  Nom!

My fellow WWDH cooks are Margaret, Chaya and Sarah - go see if they made it too.

I have been a busy little blogger lately, so I am sharing with you a brief montage of my adventures.  I saw The Rolling Stones in their 14 On Fire Tour at Rod Laver Arena:


I was in awe of Mick's voice and flexibility at age 71, and of Ronnie's glittery red shoes.

I also saw Katy Perry at Rod Laver Arena:

Yep, that's her singing into a sunflower, not that you can see from the photo.  The pretty lights struck me, as did Katy's many costume changes - just like a real life Anime feature.

I also went to see What We Did on Our Holiday at The British Film Festival at Palace Como:


Loved that movie - it makes you laugh and cry, and it features David Tennant - what more could you want?  This cool Union Jack mini was in the foyer of Como to celebrate the Festival.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Yours looks better than mine.

David Tennant definitely goes a long way to making a film good :-) Simple dishes also get a big tick in my world, and I do love balsamic flavours. I'm glad you enjoyed your dish in the end.

That is such an easy dinner!! I have only ever been to two modern music concerts: Sherbet when I was 16 and Elton John a few years ago. I am so not cool!!!
