Chicken and More ..

Macadamia Chicken
Broccoli with Garlic and Chilli
Lemon Roasted Onion and Carrots


Macadamia Chicken.
I got this recipe from a lady named Megan who participated in one of those email recipe exchanges.
  • 600g - 1kg chicken breast fillets - sliced.
  • 1 cup crushed macadamia nuts
  • 3 cups of fresh breadcrumbs (Just chuck bread into the food processor and process til it looks like breadcumbs ... I used whole grain bread)
  • 250 g of shredded parmesan cheese (I just used the stuff I always keep in the fridge ...)
  • 2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley
  • 120 g melted butter ( I used olive oil instead of butter )
  1. Grease baking dish (I used baking paper instead )
  2. Place sliced chicken pieces evenly across bottom of dish.
  3. Combine all other ingredients and spread evenly across all the chicken.
  4. Bake in moderate oven (180C) for 30-45 min.
  5. Cut into squares and serve with salad. (is really nice with cranberry sauce or mango puree)

I didn't serve with salad ... or the sauces.

I served with the following :

Lemon Roasted Onions and Carrots (from:The Great Vegetarian Cookbook)

  • 2 large brown onions
  • 2 medium lemons
  • 5 small carrots
  • 4 unpeeled cloves of garlic ( I, of course, used many more than 4 ! )
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Cut onions and lemons into eight wedges
  2. Combine onion, lemon, carrot, garlic and rosemary in baking dish. Drizzle with oil, stir gently.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in moderate oven about 1 hour or until tender.
  4. Increase overn temperature to hot, bake vegetables about 10 minutes or until browned. ( I skipped this last step as I didn't think it was necessary ... )


Broccoli with garlic and chilli (from: Super Food Ideas magazine April 2007 edition)

  • 800g broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced ( uh, yeah ... more than that )

  1. Bring large saucepan of water to the boil. Cook brocolli 3 minutes or til bright green. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat iol in a large, deep fying pan or wok over low heat. Add garlic and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Increase heat to medium. Add broccoli. Toss until well coated.
