Chicken is very much a staple food in our house – its versatile, quick to prepare and healthy. There’s nothing nicer than the smell of freshly roasting chicken on a Sunday, but more often than not speed is of the essence mid week, so I’m always on the look out for new ways of preparing chicken breasts or pieces for a quick, healthy, child-friendly meal.
‘Take Thou Food’ have a delicious sounding recipe for Herb Crusted Chicken – pairing chicken breasts with tomatoes, a herb crust and a dusting of sharp parmesan. Both the salsa topping and the breadcrumbs could be made in advance – the assembly would then take a matter of minutes. Why not make some extra salsa and breadcrumbs as both will freeze well for future use. Perfect served with a fresh green salad or green beans.
