I needed a quick and easy lunch over the weekend and didn’t want to spend ages slaving away in the kitchen. I knew I had salad in the fridge and thought I’d try to throw together something I kind of remember watching on TV.
It needed to be super simple. Here is what is needed;-
- Chicken Breasts
- 2tbsp Polenta (Maize Flour)
- 1tsp Paprika
- pinch Salt
- pinch Pepper
- Salad (whatever you have)
- Any other herbs/spices
- Bermondsey Friar/Halumi
I laid some baking parchment on my chopping board and got my breasts out.
Get breasts out of packet.
Put polenta/paprika/salt/pepper & any other herbs spices on the chicken.
Don’t worry about it being all on the chicken, you need some on the paper anyway.
Fold the paper over the chicken and give it a bash!
You are trying to flatten out the chicken to speed up the cooking time required.
I rubbed more of the polenta mix into the chicken before getting a pan on.
When the oil is hot, get the chicken in the pan.
When it is browned on one side, flip those chicken fillets over.
When the 2nd side is cooked I flipped them back over…
…before tipping them out onto a plate.
I wiped the frying pan clean with some kitchen roll, put some rock salt in there and cooked some Bermondsey Friar cheese I had left over.
You can treat it just like Halumi so I dry-fry with some salt.
Final job, build the salad.
Unlike the recipe I saw on TV, this had a shop bought dressing. I just didn’t want to break-out my blender and have to wash it up!
A really tasty quick lunch that took less than 20 minutes from turning on the hob to eating! Lovely!
