Chicken & Sweetcorn, a one-pot Bake

A few fresh ingredients, made in the one pan makes this a filling and tasty dish for any occasion. Is it a frittata, a crust less quiche or a bake? It doesn’t matter as it tastes good! Ideal for lunch, dinner or picnic food!

You will need:

1 red Capsicum, deseeded and chopped fine
1 red onion, peeled and chopped
1 seeded chilli chopped (optional)
2 cloves garlic chopped (optional)
400gms of skinless chicken breast, thin slice and dice
Kernels from 2 cobs of Sweet Corn
4 free range eggs
¼ cup of full cream milk
Hard grated cheese for topping (I use sheeps cheese)


Heat oven to 180ºc .
Use the top grill and fan function if you have one.

The best pan for this is a heavy bottomed fry pan that can also go in the oven. If you don’t have one of these, make the filling on the stove top and then cook in the oven in a flan dish.

Heat the frypan with a smidgen of olive oil and cook down the onion and capsicum together with the chilli and garlic, stirring well for only about 2 minutes.
Turn up the heat and add the diced chicken, stir well and cook for no more than 5 minutes.
Take the pan off the heat and stir through the sweet corn kernels.

Beat eggs, milk and seasoning together and pour evenly over the pan. Pat down to make the top reasonably level…top with a grated hard cheese.

Pop in the oven. If you oven has top grill and fan function place pan on top shelf.
Keep an eye on it, but should be cooked in about 10 minutes.
In an ordinary oven it may take a few minutes more.
