Spain on a Plate


Take 3 boned and rolled chicken thighs,on a board scatter some thyme leaves and oregano(dry herbs are fine) scatter some smoked paprika and splash with olive oil,now rub the chicken ito the herbs on the board put in a roasting tray and roast at 220 for 20 minutes.

Now in a frying pan add glug of olive oil and add a chopped onion and clove of garlic and one chopped fresh chilli, and some sliced choritzo...cook for 5 minutes ,but don't brown now add a glug of tio pepe and teaspoon of smoked paprika and teaspoon picante paprika and half pint of chicken stock and add your cooked butter beans,let this all slowly simmer for 15 minutes

Then add some fresh spinach,wilt it down and save onto a plate,take the chicken from the oven and place on top,truly the taste of Spain.

You could add olives or roasted red peppers ever some chopped tomatoes for a change but this is lovely the saltiness of the choritzo spicy pimento flavoured stock and the herby juicy chicken.Try it ......

The worlds Greatest Hamberger

I got this recipe whilst I was living in Texas,this is the greatest hamburger ever.The key is the meat,I buy half a kilo of minced chuck steak(for two burgers) put in a bowl with two or 3 large tablespoons of fine breadcrumbs,the same of dried parsley generously season add just a splash of olive oil and form into burger shapes put on a plate and chill in the refrigerator until you want to use.

I cooked this on the BBq for 3 minutes either side and then added the cheddar cheese, and served in a toasted bun with tomato iceberg lettuce,gherkins and a marie rose sauce zapped up with cayenne pepper...Delicious
