Chicken pesto – #FeedMeFridays

Pesto Chicken Pesto Chicken with Quinoa

An amazing recipe that is one of my go to recipes when I’m feeling lazy. You can make it for yourself or for a big group of people.

Ingredients:

  • two chicken breasts roughly chopped up
  • a handful of whole cherry tomatoes
  • a handful of sliced mushrooms (mine are frozen!)
  • a handful of broccoli (mine are frozen)
  • a handful of spinach (mine is frozen)
  • a batch of my home made green pesto

Throw it all in the oven and let it cook on 180 degrees for a good 45 minutes or so, scrummy!

When it comes out you can eat it just as is, or you can boil up some quinoa, cous cous, rice, bread, pasta, the list goes on ! yummmmm

Ciao for now x

Day 22 – Eggy soldiers!

Frying PanSoldiers on a plate

So to start with, let me make this very clear, this is NOT the most beautiful of dishes. To be fair, not many of my dishes are very pretty but they are good for you and they are delicious....I'm afraid I'm just not an artist with my food! Sorry!

This one is another alternative in the mornings. I love bread and I love eggs so eggy soldiers are my favourite thing ever. This is a slight variation on my usual as I had the most delicious home baked sour dough bread with seaweed in it made and sourced via one of the girls in my yoga class (her stuff can be found here http://www.arlenedunkley-wood.co.uk/)

Obviously the ingredients and recipe for this dish are minimal and simplistic, that's why you can be luxurious in your bread choice and go crazy with a delicious bread choice. If you can get hold of some of Arlene's please do as you won't regret it:

Ingredients
2 large organic eggs
Splash of coconut milk
2 slices of good thick slices of bread (though any will do)

Put about a quarter of a teaspoon of coconut milk in a pan to start warming up. Slice the bread into soldiers, about 2cm thick.

Beat the two eggs and the coconut milk together in a bowl and season with some salt and pepper.

Dip the slices of bread into the egg mixture and fry in the frying pan. Fry on each side until nicely browned.

Put on a plate with some cracked black pepper on top and enjoy!

It's that simple!!!
