What's good.

Take

six chicken oysters, (that's chicken thighs to the world outside Gerry's butcher shop)
two medium tomahhtoes,
Six large mushrooms,
a small bulb of garlic, broken up but with the paper jackets still on,
two large shallots,
salt and freshly crushed peppercorns,
palmful of rubbed basil, or three sprigs fresh, chopped,
half a cup or so of olive oil

Only quarter or halve the mushrooms and shallots and tomahhtoes, don't slice.
Load the whole mess into a cast iron dutch oven, and squoosh it all around with your hands so everything is completely and evenly coated with the oil and spices. Throw in a bit more olive oil on top.

Shove the entire lot into the oven, with the lid off, at about 180 C. for an hour.

Eat.

As I've said before. We don't have Fridays in England. The Protestant revolutionaries abolished them.
