Rosemary & Lemon Chicken | Sunday Brunch Special

Happy Tuesday Scribblers! 

So yesterday marked the first day of starting a healthier lifestyle in a bid to tighten up our tums with feel good food and plenty of exercise.

Now, I’m a huge fan of Channel 4 Sunday Brunch and watch it religiously, in fact I’ve been watching the duo since they presented Something For The Weekend! I love trying out new recipes however I’ve never gave one of Simon Rimmers recipes a go until I saw what he made on Sunday. This is my take on the recipe I found here – Lemon Chicken with Beans and Capers

Rosemary & Lemon Chicken with Green & Broad Bean Salad and Crostini. 

What you will need –

  • 2 x Chicken Breasts (cut into strips)
  • 1 x Lemon (1/2 sliced finely, ½ juiced)
  • Large handful of Green Beans
  • 150g Broad Beans
  • 2 x Shallots (finely sliced)
  • 2 Large Garlic Cloves (crushed or finely sliced)
  • ½ Baguette
  • Olive Oil

What to do –

  1. Heat the olive oil, crushed/sliced garlic in a pan until hot then add the lemon slices and rosemary until the aroma sills the room.
  2. Meanwhile, finely chop the shallots and add them to a saucepan with the broad beans, green beans, lemon juice and pepper to season, then allow to boil on a low heat until dishing up.
  3. Add your chicken strips to the hot pan and leave it to stick and crisp on the outside, turning every so often to caramelise all over.
  4. Slice up the baguette, allow 3 slices per person, rub some olive oil into your palms and pat onto the individual slices. Heat a griddle pan (you can use the normal grill if you don’t have one) and grill till crisp and coloured golden brown.
  5. When done, you can start plating up!
  6. Using a slotted spoon, pick up some of the beany goodness and place it onto the centre of the plate. Strategically place your 3 crostini’s on top and then pile on the chicken using tongs. Add some more of the bean mixture on top to provide some extra moisture to the dish and VOILA!
  7. In under 30 minutes you can create a restaurant standard, gorgeous tasting and very healthy dish.
  8. Now, tuck in and enjoy.

Have you tried any of the other recipes?
