One Pot Greek Chicken & Lemon Rice

One Pot Greek Chicken & Lemon Rice

I love anything lemony, it’s always such a refreshing taste!  The rice with chicken on top is cooked in one pot.  The rice soaks up the juices from the chicken, this gives this dish extra flavour.   I’ve used wild rice which takes a little

Recently Heidi made a recipe with bay leaves blitzed into breadcrumbs. The taste was exquisite. We are so used to bay leaves being thrown into the pot or added to the bobotie, but we seldom know why. It’s as if it’s a good idea, but

This is one of those recipes that, when I walk into the house and I smell it, I am transported back twenty-five years, to my Mom’s kitchen in Montgomery Park. It is a simple recipe, and I believe quite timeless. When I met Heidi she
