Hello friends,

Sorry for my lack of posts recently, I don’t do Winter very well…I tend to hibernate.  That being said I’ve still be cooking up some delicious food, infact I have a lamb shoulder in the oven which will come out in 14 hours and this afternoon I made this yummy chicken dish with silverbeet and tahini dressing.

Here’s how it rolled:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Quarter the chicken (or get the butcher to do it for you)
  3. Place the chicken in a large mixing bowl
  4. Add the spices, oil, salt, garlic and chilli
  5. Toss the chicken to ensure the skin is covered with the spice mix
  6. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and pop in the oven (45mins)
  7. Meanwhile chop the garlic, chilli and silverbeet stalks
  8. De-stem the silverbeet leaves and roughly chop
  9. After 45 minutes remove the chicken from the oven and set aside
  10. Add the olive oil to a large fry pan on a medium heat
  11. Add the garlic and chilli then throw in the silverbeet stalks and saute for 2 minutes
  12. Add the leaves but allow them to sit on top of the stalks (allowing them to stem)
  13. After 2-3 minutes stir the silverbeet leaves with the stems and remove from the heat
  14. Add a squeeze of lemon to the greens and dress with the tahini dressing (http://www.scottgoodingproject.com/recipe/kale-eggs/)
  15. Serve with the chicken
