I have had a lovely week getting the garden ready for the summer. I went to lots of garden centres with my Mum and bought fuschias and geraniums and surfinas for the tubs and also tomato plants, fennel and herbs. I can't wait for the summer and for all the veg to grow!
I made this delicious soy poached chicken the other day, again a really simple recipe but so tasty.
Soy Poached Chicken (from Everyday Gourmet)
2 chicken breasts
500ml chicken stock
¼ cup light soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 chilli, roughly chopped
2 knobs ginger, roughly chopped
1 clove garlic
1 star anise
juice of a lime
In a medium saucepan, add all ingredients except the chicken. Bring to the boil.
Turn the heat down and add the chicken. Allow to gently simmer for 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and allow the chicken to infuse in the stock.
Remove and slice each into four even pieces. Serve with rice and steamed bok choi and a little of the cooking liquor.
