Chicken Schnitzel

Thinly slice chicken breast into small pieces

In a separate bowl add breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and fine chopped fresh herbs or dried herbs from the cupboard (I used mixed dry herbs, lemon pepper and a few chilli flakes for some kick)
Coat the chicken piece in the egg/milk mix, then place in the breadcrumb mix and coat completely
Once all pieces have been crumbed heat some oil in a pan and brown each side of the crumbed chook


Caprese salad

Half cherry tomatoes (or quarter if they are big)
Tear bocconcini into smaller pieces
Tear basil leaves
Splash on a little balsamic vinegar and some olive oil
Combine gently


Pearl cous cous

Heat 2 cups of chicken stock and the juice of one lemon
When boiling add 2 cups of pearl cous cous
Turn down heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes with the lid on
Stir occasionally

Serve with a slice of lemon and enjoy! πŸ™‚
