Recipe: Garlic and Lemon Chicken

Well this is a Slimming World recipe which features in the new book I just got from them Extra Easy Meals in Minutes, it’s super easy to make and really tasty to eat. My favourite combination. You can download a nifty little recipe printable by clicking here

The other up side of this dinner is that it smells amazing as it cooks. Really amazing.

So ingredients: (serves four)

Several Sprigs of Rosemary
4 Garlic Cloves
Rind of One Lemon
1 Egg White
4 Chicken Breasts
4 Potatoes
Salad and Tomatoes

Make it like this…

First take the rosemary, lemon rind and garlic cloves and chop finely. I mixed them in a mortar and pestle too.

Take the chicken breasts (or pork or turkey) and place them under some cling film, batter them until they are flatter. Whisk your egg white, and dip your flat chicken breasts in the egg white and then cover them in your lovely lemony mix.

Stick them on a baking tray and bake. Around 220C and in 30 minutes max you’ll have a lovely smelling dinner.

I served mine with home made chips and salad. The salad was bagged and added few cherry tomatoes to it. The chips were made by peeling and cutting up the potatoes, boiling them for 5 mins or until they are softer, remove them from water and rough them up a little. Pop on a baking tray and spray with fry light and stick in the oven for around the same time as the chicken, possibly 10 minutes more.

All of it is lovely, a really tasty dinner. The nutritional information stacks up pretty good too, 222 calories per serving. If you are a slimming worlder it’s a free meal on Extra Easy.
