Simple Chicken Supper by Helen Aurelius-Haddock (with a bit of help from Jamie O)

Simple Chicken Supper.


I love summer in France, but the only thing that makes me a teeny bit


sad is that I have to switch of my beloved Aga off. It is the epicentre


of my Foodie life, and sometimes I love it more than my OH. (Please


don’t worry, he knows this and understands)


It makes sense really. We all tend to move towards lighter cooking


duties during the warmer months. For days on end I sometimes just boil


a pan full of new seasons’ potatoes to go with yet another salad that I


have drawn up.( Although I need to work on that Rice Krispie, onion and


chorizo combo before I serve it up).


I found a one pot chicken dish in Jamie Oliver’s at Home book and find


it perfect for a large crowd with a salad and of course, copious


amounts of French bread.


I wrote about it on my blog, and here’s what I said.


I have written the ingredients list out below, just in case you don’t


have the book, although you will see from the blog post that I NEVER


follow a recipe. Enjoy, or as they say in these parts, profitez-en!
