Oh blog, how I have missed you! It's only been a week but the rubbish microwave meals I have been living off, over exam week, have made me miss making lovely food for this blog. So I am glad to be back with you :). My exams went well, thank you for asking but now I am left with the lovely task of job hunting. On top of that I have bikini season to worry about so expect to see lots of fresh, healthy things appearing over the next few weeks.
To start my bikini season off I made lovely baked, tomato and basil coated chicken tonight, which I had with rocket salad. Super easy to made but so delicious and really good for you. Try it :)
What you'll need (to feed two):
- 2 chicken breasts;
- 2 large handfuls of basil (about 15 leaves, maybe a few more);
- A jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil (you don't need the whole jar, you only need about 6 tomato pieces out of it but you also need 2 teaspoons of the oil);
- 1 tbsp grated parmesan;
- pinch of salt and pepper.
Next, on a lined baking tray spread out 1/3 of the paste and lay the chicken breasts on top of it. Then cover the chicken with the remainder of the paste and pop the tray into the oven for 17-20 minutes.
When the chicken is cooked through, plate it up with a handful of salad per person. I also drizzled mine with balsamic glaze. Then enjoy :)
