Jamie Oliver’s Cypriot Chicken

What a glorious day it is today; perfect weather to be cooking up summery food; no more pies and puddings.

I was flicking through my ever growing selection of cookery books and found this delightful recipe for Cypriot Chicken by Jamie Oliver taken from his 30 Minute Meals book. It was surprisingly quite simple. Although I’d never made it before, it turned out lovely.

Jamie Oliver pan fried his chicken completely but just to ensure it was cooked through I finished mine off in the oven. Plus my chicken breasts were larger than his so they took longer to cook.

It was really tasty and had the flavours of being on holiday. Yummy! A really summery dish for a gloriously sunny day – give this one a try.

Then I mixed them all together and stuffed into the chicken.

I pan fried them in a hot pan to gain some colour and finished in a hot oven, to ensure they were cooked through.

I served it with Nigella Lawson’s New Orleans Coleslaw from her Nigella Express cook book. Find the recipe here.
