slivered almonds(ContainsTree Nuts)

shredded Cheddar cheese(ContainsMilk)
Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Place the potato on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time.
While the potato is roasting, finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pick and slice the basil leaves. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Season the chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan. Cook until golden, 2 minutes each side. Transfer to a large baking dish. Return the pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the garlic and dried oregano (see ingredients list) and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, basil, brown sugar, butter and crumble in 1 vegetable stock cube. Simmer until thickened, 3-4 minutes.
Pour the tomato mixture over the chicken in the baking dish. Sprinkle with the shredded Cheddar cheese and bake until the chicken is just cooked through, 6-10 minutes (depending on thickness). Set aside to rest for 5 minutes. TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it is no longer pink inside.
While the chicken is baking, trim the green beans. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the green beans and carrot and a splash of water and cook, tossing, until tender, 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the baked cheesy chicken and tomato sauce between plates. Serve the roast potato and veggies on the side. Sprinkle the slivered almonds over the adults' portions.
