PREPARATION
1.
Preheat oven to 350F.
PREPARING THE POTATOES
2.
Peel the potatoes and boil them whole until tender. Do not overcook them.
3.
When potatoes are done, add 1.5 tbsp of olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper and 1.5 tbsp flour. Toss to coat the potatoes well.
PREPARING BECHAMEL SAUCE
4.
In a small saucepan, add the butter.
5.
Add few drops of olive oil. Stir in 1 tbsp flour and mix continuously until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit.
6.

7.
Switch off the heat. Stir in parmesan cheese. Set aside.
PREPARING THE CHICKEN
8.
Coat the cubed chicken in 1.5 tbsp of flour.
9.
Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Coat the bottom with the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil.
10.
When the pan is hot add the chicken cubes and toss in high heat for not more than 4 minutes. (You are going to bake it later, so it's ok if it is not cooked through).
PREPARING THE BAKE
11.
In a rectangular baking pan spread 1/4th of the Marinara sauce. Arrange roasted potatoes and chicken cubes in a layer. Sprinkle red chili flakes and a bit of the chopped fresh basil.
12.
Spread 1/2 of the remaining Marinara sauce and bechamel sauce.
13.
Layer with remaining potatoes and chicken, followed by leftover marinara sauce and bechamel sauce.
14.
Sprinkle some more chili flakes (if desired) and chopped basil. Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
15.
Cover the tray with an aluminium foil and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove the cover, add some fresh basil leaves, and bake for 5-6 minutes more until the cheese melts.
