Fruity mediterranean chicken

I love dishes that start with a combination I’ve never tried before! And this one certainly did – with onions, fennel, cinnamon and chicken all making early appearances. The original recipe describes this as southern Italian style chicken, but to me it tasted almost more mediterranean. Jamie Oliver also suggests a few ingredients like preserved…

Chilli bowl

The recipe I found to make this originally has got lots of comments about how this is better than an average chilli, and I certainly agree. There was a great depth of flavour and also just┬áthe right amount of heat to make you take notice but not so much that you need a pint of…
