2 bone-in chicken thighs
1 red onion
1 medium eggplant
1 green zucchini
1 yellow zucchini
1 yellow pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) oil
2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) sundried tomato, chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) oregano
1 tsp (5 mL) thyme
1 tsp (5 mL) basil
398 ml can tomato sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
1 Preheat oven to 375° F.
2 In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients, stirring until fully mixed and set aside.
3 Slice eggplant and zucchini in ¼” slices and onion and pepper in large slices uniform in size to each other, setting aside for layering.
4 In a small skillet, heat olive oil at medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs and sear for 5 minutes on each side. Place each seared chicken thigh into the middle of individual baking dishes and layer sliced vegetables around the outside of the baking dish, rotating vegetables for colour. If preferred, you can assemble in a larger baking dish to serve a meal for two in one dish.
5 Sprinkle garlic and sundried tomatoes over the top evenly before pouring the sauce in equal amounts over the top of the vegetables.
6 Place into the oven for 35 minutes uncovered, browning the top slightly before removing. Serve warm.
