On the menu this week

Dinner last night was a Turkish inspired Chicken, Mushroom & Green Bean Pilaf garnished with fresh parsley, mint, sumac and preserved lemon.

Combining spices of cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne and paprika with chilli, garlic, salt, pepper, chicken stock and the gentle flavours of chicken, mushroom and brown basmati rice worked really well as a healthy one pot meal.

It’s the ideal summer comfort food when the weather isn’t so great! The only improvement I would make next time is to use chicken thigh fillets instead of breast for their succulence and deeper flavour.
