This recipe is an adaptation of a well-known Provençal dish. Not only is it incredibly simple to make – and don't worry, the garlic mellows once it's cooked – but it's also a good way of helping to ward off bugs. Garlic has been shown to have a powerful antiviral effect and some evidence suggests that eating garlic regularly (two or three cloves a day) will help to reduce the risk of viral infections, including colds and flu. The red peppers in this dish will boost your vitamin C levels and if you're suffering from a blocked nose, try adding a generous pinch of dried chilli flakes to this dish – chilli can help relieve congestion. If you want to reduce the dish's fat content you can use skinned chicken and halve the amount of oil.
