Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Chicken stuffed with Coriander Pesto, wrapped in Prosciutto
This meal came about tonight because I wanted to make the coriander pesto, and I remember years ago having tried coriander pesto for the first time, stuffed into chicken breasts. I can't see why shop bought pesto wouldn't also work. I've also done variations of this meal using blue cheese to stuff the chicken and wrapping in bacon instead of prosciutto. This meal doesn't need a recipe really, cut a pocket into the biggest part of the chicken breast and spoon some pesto into the hole. Wrap the prosciutto around the chicken breast, I grated on a little lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190C for 20-25 mins until the chicken is cooked and the ham crispy. Spoon the lovely juices over the chicken. Once again I put some uncooked new potatoes and some raw carrots in to roast for 50 min, why bother having to peel and par-boil when these are so delicious, without the extra work. This was probably my favourite meal since I started this blog.
