Cooking with Jamie

I thought I would share a super easy but extra tasty dinner with you this week. I've cooked it twice now and both times it's been a success. Over the holidays I decided it was time to start cooking from my ever growing cookbook collection, as most things I cook are from magazines (or packets...eeek) It is from Jamie Oliver's book "Cook With Jamie" and it is:
Roasted Chicken breast with creamy butternut Squash (pumpkin in Australia) and chilli's

Ingredients per chicken breast:
 half a fresh red chilli de-seeded and sliced
leaves of a few sprigs of Oregano
a quarter of butternut pumpkin thinly sliced
a small amount of double cream 

toss together red chilli and oregano over chicken breast
place chicken breast in an over proof container on foil
place pumpkin around the edge of the chicken 
carefully pour double cream on pumpkin without getting the chicken
sprinkle with nutmeg, salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil

Jamie says to cook on 200 degrees Celsius for 25-35 minutes but my oven is old and takes at least 50. Maybe fan-forced would be quicker

Enjoy it really is tasty and Easy!


  1. Yum! I'll have to try this one out. Nothing like an easy dinner.
