Chicken with Puy Lentils and Asparagus…

As I mentioned in an earlier post I got the Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals Cookbook for Christmas. I tried this recipe from it for the first time the other day and it was really tasty! I’ve included a few images from the cooking process!

In this recipe the chicken is rubbed with salt, pepper and cayenne before being bashed thin and pan fried in a drizzle of olive oil with whole garlic cloves, pancetta and asparagus.

The chicken is served with puy lentils cooked with carrot, onion, spinach and yoghurt.

If I had to make a few comments about this recipe book I would say you can’t do the recipes in 15 minutes….unless you want to trash the kitchen. If your prepared to open cans and throw them on the floor or simply open a packet of chicken breasts and cook them with trimming and sinew or fat then it is possible but realistically people don’t really cook like that! This recipe book should probably be called ‘30 Minute Meals’ and ‘30 Minute Meals’ should probably be called ‘ 5 and Half Hour Meals’ but there you go! Despite that the book is still good with a wide range of recipes to try!
