I could so easily talk about pie for the next 6 days, what with it being British Pie Week. It's taking all the willpower I have in me to stop myself retweeting everything about pie that has grabbed my interest (and it's only the second day of British Pie Week).
But I do need to practice a bit more self-restraint.
Every now and then, I go through phases where I suddenly decide to experiment with different ways to cook up the same thing. Something broad like ways to try out different types of seafood, playing around with a cuisine-specific dish like congee, or something randomly precise like er, pork strips.
This brings me to the breast of chicken - it's one of the more budget-friendly, healthier cuts of meat - also thought to be super versatile. Yet it can be so easy to just make the same 2 or 3 dishes over and over.
Nothing wrong with that of course (if it's not killing anyone), but it's good to be able to excite your stomach with something different for a change, with that smug feeling that what you're eating is rather good for you too.
So that's what the following four chicken breast recipes are about...
The chicken is marinated with lemon, olive oil and honey to keep it lovely and moist whilst it's under the grill. The equally lemony polenta provides a welcome change to your usual potato mash.
The chicken is kept relatively simple here too with just garlic and white wine vinegar to liven it up.
Well, it's official, I've waffled on about chicken for ages now - and believe or not, there are more chicken recipes here that you might like. Enjoy!
