    Chicken breast with sun dried tomatoes and tarragon and paprika sauce

    A quickly made dish, lovely served with new potatoes and baby vegetables or try it with my mushroom and broccoli in coriander and garlic - yummy!

    Could also be served with pasta, rice or a mixed salad.


    4 Chicken Breast fillets
    4 Tablespoons of lemon juice
    2 teaspoons of Paprika
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    1 tbsp fresh Tarragon, chopped (or use dried or freeze dried)
    2oz (50g) Butter
    10 sun dried tomatoes - best bought in jars in oil as leftovers will keep for another day
    Quarter pint double cream - we use reduced fat cream substitute as a healthier option
    Chilli powder to taste
    Generous bunch of rocket leaves


    Slice the chicken breast fillets thinly across ways and place in a bowl with the lemon juice, paprika, tarragon and garlic. Mix and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
    Melt the butter in a pan and add the chicken mixture cooking gently stirring now and then for approx. 10 minutes. Meanwhile slice each sun dried tomato into 3 or 4 pieces.
    When the chicken is cooked remove it from the pan. Stir the cream into the juices in the pan then return to the heat and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and stir in the salt and chilli powder to taste. Return the cooked chicken to the pan together with the sun dried tomatoes, stir until warmed through then add the rocket leaves (reserve a few for garnish) stir until the leaves are just wilted.
    Garnish with the remaining rocket leaves.

      MMM sounds nice. I've just made a loaf from the remains of several packs of mostly-used flour. Buck wheat flour, spelt, bits of ordinary self raising flour and so on. Whatever was left in the flour department in our kitchen.
      Pink Floyd comes to mind:
      All in all, it's just another brick in the wall . . . .

      Is there any reason why this thread is sitting at the top of today's posts when it is over 24 hours old?

  • Quick Tortellini Pasta in a Creamy Sauce
    by Pauline
    This recipe was sent in by a reader - thank you.

    We tried this recipe using Morrison's Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini. Recipe worked well but needed approx. half a pint of milk. Sauce was a little bland and next time I think I'd add some herbs for a bit more flavour. Didn't have any cream so that might have made a difference if added.
    Overall it was a nice recipe, extremely quick to make so ideal for a rush meal. Made quite enough for two people, it's very filling.

  • Tirumisu (sweet)
    by Pauline

    Absolutely delicious - thanks John and Wendy for this recipe.

    No cooking required but a fridge to chill it in is useful.

    It’s not just pasta for which we have to thank the Italians. Their sensational Tirumisu – literally “pick-me-up” – is one of the world’s best desserts. A delicious combination of sponge layer and creamy filling, flavoured with coffee and Marsala, Tiramisu should not be missed!


    Serves 6-8...

    Steak and Chips - Romahome style!

    Barbecued steak with chips cooked in the skillet in 'oven' mode! You can't really do many chips but they are lovely as a garnish and with the steak and salad it makes a filling meal.
