Sticky Kicking Chicken

I drive the other half potty sometimes watching cookery programs, I enjoy watching though and they give good ideas. A while back I saw this Jamie Oliver make Sticky Kicking Chicken with Watermelon Radish Salad & Crunch Noodles. This really appealed to us both and we've finally got around to trying it.

I think this turned out really well, was quick to cook (we were slightly longer than 15 minutes) but it was a very tasty dish and an ideal mid week meal. It would be great to have if you're having company. I would definitely make this again.

I did use gluten free soy sauce to make it gluten free.  We also left the radish out as we're both not keen on this, but that's just our personal taste.

I'm actually considering buying Jamie's 15 minute meals book (you can find it on Amazon here), as it seems like a good book to have around when you need some ideas for quick meals.


Meal Plan 06/10/13 - 13/10/13

I've tried to keep a couple of nights free this week as I'm going to be eating at my family's house for 2 nights. We should hopefully have plenty of leftovers this week as well, to take these to work for lunch. 

As we ending up eating out unexpectedly, I didn't manage to have the Carbonara that I was looking forward to so I've brought that into this weeks menu. We've also got a couple of new recipes that were trying, so very much looking forward to these too.
