Being a long standing fan of Donna Hay, I bought her latest cookbook fast, fresh and simple during the Christmas sales.
I’m so glad I did! The recipes are just as the title suggests and it seems that Donna’s mammoth weight loss has influenced her recipes because they are a lot lighter in butter & oil. perfecto!
As with almost every recipe, I can’t help myself from straying just a little…here my deviation is that I used a Tetsuya’s vinaigrette dressing (a lovely pressie from Neen!) for the fig & rocket salad and added heirloom cherry tomatoes. Also, after zesting the lemon, I cut it up in quarters and added it to the dish before cooking. I love the lemony flavour with chicken and thought this would intensify the taste; which it did.
