For a hearty family dinner, try this delicious chicken pot roast served with tagliatelle pasta. Made with sweet red pepper, tomatoes, smoked paprika, black olives and feta cheese, it's packed with gorgeous Greek flavours and gives wonderfully tender meat that's sure to be loved by all.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180oC, fan 160oC. Heat half the oil in a large casserole dish on a medium heat. Add the onions and pepper and fry for 5-6 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic, smoked paprika and 2 tbsp of parsley to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the wine to the pan and reduce the liquid by half before stirring in the olives and cherry tomatoes.
  2. Add the tinned and fresh tomatoes along with 50ml (2fl oz) of water to the dish and bring the pot to the boil. Reduce and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered. Season to taste.
  3. Season the chicken and drizzle over the remaining olive oil. Place the chicken in the centre of the casserole dish and put in the middle shelf of the preheated oven. Cover and cook for 1 hour 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 15 minutes, uncovered, or until no pink meat remains. Remove from the oven and sprinkle over the feta.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the pasta. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 6-7 minutes, until just al dente. Drain the pasta and stir through the butter and parsley. Gently combine until the butter is coating the pasta.
  5. Serve the chicken alongside the pasta.
