One pan chicken and courgette crumble

A one-pan recipe means that your whole meal is cooked in one pan/baking tray, so it’s stress-free and most of all, it means way less washing-up. Now, do you have any idea how satisfying is a recipe that is one-pan style, 3 ingredients, cheap AND delicious?

This is my favourite one so far. Usually I make it for two people in a larger baking pan but I love my cute mini baking pan and I wanted to treat myself for lunch for once, instead of the usual quick pasta or sandwich or anything quick I manage to make.

So for two people you just have to double the quantity.

Positive: I’ll repeat myself but, one-pan style, 3 ingredients, cheap and delicious.

Negative: It’s a shame if you haven’t tried it already!

Ingredients for 1:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 courgette
  • 40 g parmesan cheese

In your pantry:

  • 1 tbsp breadcrumbs (or just make it yourself like I did with stale bread)
  • salt, pepper
  • oregano
  • olive oil


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Step 1: Wash and slice thinly courgette lengthwise.

Grease your baking pan with olive oil and cover the bottom with courgette in one layer. Season with a little bit of salt (too much salt will make too much water and the saltiness will come with the cheesy crumble), pepper, oregano.


Step 2: Next, cut your chicken breast lengthwise and place it on top of the courgette. Season with a bit of salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.


Step 3: You made your crumble by blending hard cheese and stale bread (or use breadcrumbs if you have it). You can get creative here. For example this time I tried 20 g parmesan and 20 g cheddar cheese, but you could try with a part of mozzarella as well.


Once it gets powdery, cover the chicken with your crumble and place in oven for 20 minutes until it turns golden and crispy.

My advice: I enjoy this dish so much! It takes 10 minutes to prepare, you leave it 20 minutes in the oven and you get a healthy meal, crispy on top and juicy inside.

I’ve also experimented it with thin raw slices of pumpkin instead and it is absolutely delicious too!
