Chicken with tomato sauce and garlic

My daughter loves ketchup and everything that resembles it. So to try and give my daughter a better meal I am trying to replicate it in as many ways as possible.
This is how I came up with this recipe below. The chicken can be served with mash potato, rice or even oven potatoes. Anything your child wants its good.

Ingredients:
Chicken legs
Peeled garlic
Passata
Olive oil
Red wine
Pepper
Salt
Herbs

As you can see I didn’t give you any quantities as you just need to cook as many chicken legs as you need. For the 3 of us 3 were enough.
So while the oven is getting warm this is what you need to do:

Take the chicken legs, wash them, cut them on top a little bit to enable them to cook faster. Put them in a porcelain oven dish (a high oven dish will do if don’t have a porcelain one though) and add olive oil, red wine, salt, pepper and herbs. Also slice the garlic and place it on top of the chicken , through the cuts if you can.

Now you can put the chicken in the oven covered with foil. Leave it for 20 minutes. For colour after the 20 minutes take the foil off and leave them in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.

While the chicken is getting done you can prepare the tomato sauce. I used the new “Cirio La Classica Passata” – this comes now in plastic bottles so they are a lot easier to handle and use:

All you have to do is empty the Passata in a bowl, add a couple of crushed garlic cloves, a bit of olive oil, salt,pepper,dry coriander and any other dry herbs you have.
Put the tomato sauce on top of the chicken and insert in the oven for 10-15 minutes. This will give the chicken the time to absorb the tomato sauce. For this 10-15 return the foil on top to the chicken.

After that take the foil and leave the chicken in he oven for another 10 minutes or so.

As I said above this can be served with anything you prefer. I just boiled some white rice to each at the end of the boiling I added 100ml of milk. The milk make it softer and nicer for the little ones.

Hope you enjoy if you cook them and if you have any questions leave them in the comments and I will answer as usual.
