Mexican Chicken!


So, I have been asked by a few people to share the recipe for this dish. So here it is, in all its glory. I decided to a blog post for it as Facebook has changed again and I feel like I am having to relearn everything and work out why I can't upload files anymore!


Anyway, I digress. This recipe was created from my Mexican Chicken recipe that was in the June 2020 Newsletter. In case you have deleted that email or not seen it, I have included it below. But effectively this dish is..


  • Mexican Chicken

  • Pan fried halloumi - just slice your halloumi and gently fry on both sides in a non stick pan. Keep the pan on a low to medium heat so it cooks more gently. I love halloumi and have 1 block between 2 people!

  • Roasted Beetroot - wrap some fresh beetroot, skin and all, (1 bulb between 2 people) in foil and roast in a oven at 180 C / 200 C for 35 - 40 minutes. Take out and leave to cool. Then unwrap and if you gently rub the beetroot the skin will come away easily.

  • Quinoa Salad - Cook the quinoa in vegetable stock according to the packet instructions. Once cooked add a tin of chickpeas, sun dried tomatoes and spinach. Use the oil from the sun dried tomatoes as a dressing.

  • Viola! Dish is ready!
