Comfort food. But actually not too unhealthy considering I served this with a pile of green veg. The chicken breasts were enormous, but my bf and I gobbled them up because we aren’t very good at leaving food.

1) whisk an egg and leave to one side in a bowl.

2) put breadcrumbs on a plate.

3) dip the chicken breasts in the egg and then breadcrumbs, and fry til golden on the outside.

4) in an oven dish place: 1 carton of passata, some dried mixed herbs, and a garlic glove. You’re meant to fry off the garlic before it goes in but I was dead lazy. It was all good til my bf accidentally ate it, so try not to forget to remove it.

5) place the chicken in the tomato sauce, rip up the mozzarella and place on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan and breadcrumbs.

6) oven on 180 for 20 mins or til golden brown.

Serve with green things!

After making my Harissa salmon last Friday I had a jar of Harissa to use up. These burgers were AMAZING. I made 4 big ones and had scoffed them within 24 hours.

[prep 10 mins, 25 min cooking time @ 170 degrees C / serves 4]

1) peel and chop one large sweet potato, place in a pan of boiling water and cook til soft.

2) in a large bowl, empty 2 tins of tuna. Grind in pepper, break an egg into it and add 2-3 tsp of Harissa paste.

3) mash the sweet potato and add to the tuna bowl, mix it all together.

4) set aside a plate and pour breadcrumbs on it – I used bashed up oat cakes and seeds as I’d run out of regular breadcrumbs.

5) wet your hands, form the fish mix into patties and place in the breadcrumbs.

6) place on a lined baking tray and bake for 20-25 mins at 170 degrees C.

Serve in a bun or with salad and a sprinkle of feta.

  
Apologies for the wordy title – I was just describing everything on the plate! This is such and easy and tasty dinner, it requires very little effort!

1) peel and slice 2 sweet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil and bake at 180 degrees c.

2) after 5 mins, put the fish in. I use frozen because it’s cheaper to buy and lasts a long time. To prepare, place the fish on tin foil and spread pesto on the top. Wrap up the parcel and place on a baking tray.

3) bake the fish and sweet potato for 25 mins.

4) remove the fish from the oven and open up the parcels – sprinkle breadcrumbs on the top and put back in the oven, leaving the parcel open.

5) after 5 mins take everything out. Sprinkle feta over the sweet potatoes and olives on the fish. Add some boiled brocolli to your plate for extra green.

Don’t lose the juice in the foil! You should have a light pesto drizzle for the fish.
