Step 1

Season chicken quarters with salt and pepper and place snugly in a ceramic dish. Pour over tomatoes, garlic, butter beans, 1/2 basil, black olives and lemon zest. Mix all ingredients together, with chicken slightly above everything else. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Place in oven for 1 1/2hr at 180c. Half way through cooking add rest of basil and mix gently.

Serve with freshly baked ciabatta.
Allow chicken to rest for 10 mins covered with foil.
If there is a lot of juice in pan, strain off liquid keeping tomato mixture warm and reduce it to concentrate the flavours.
Serve with some broccoli or green beans.
