Masterchef is back on the box.
More ideas on how to create deliciousness to shove into my pie hole.
I love to eat.
I love to cook.
I wish I could be more adventurous with recipes but the idea of slaving over a hot stove or oven for hours only to have the kids take one look at it and say 'yuck' puts me off.
So here's a little recipe that I came up with that the kids actually ate. Greek Style Chicken Salad.
You need chicken breasts, Greek seasoning, olive oil and for the salad cos lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, sliced Kalamata olives, fetta and dill.
The heroes of the dish? The olive oil and the Greek seasoning. Don't stuff around mixing your own just buy a jar of the stuff. It tastes a bit lemony and fresh.
Cover your chicken breasts with the olive oil. Sprinkle over tons of the seasoning and I mean TONS. You want it to create a crust. Let it marinate for about ten minutes.
Throw the chicken onto your grill pan. I'm sure you're supposed to space it out but who can be bothered. Throw on more seasoning if it's come off. Use your marinade to baste. Keep turning it to check that the seasoning hasn't burnt.
When both sides look kind of cooked add a bit of water to the pan to create steam, pop on a lid and take it off the heat.
Make the salad with the lettuce, olives, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fetta and dill.
Take the chicken out of the pan and let it rest for a few minutes.
Watch the 3 year old feed the baby ice cream.
Slice up the chicken and chuck it on top of the salad.
Use the pan juices as dressing over the chicken and salad. Don't be stingy with the dressing, it is delicious and makes your chicken Nandos style moist.
Yum. It's light and fresh and delicious.
The chicken was a big hit with the older kids.
The little kids picked out the olives and wouldn't eat the tomatoes but whatever. Yummo.
