saturday night dinner

on saturday we had a very lazy day. just going to the supermarket knackered me out! (energy levels not quite there yet). as we were spending the evening at home we decided to try a new recipe for dinner....
i think i've said before how much i love jamie oliver and his cook books. this time we tried pollo alla cacciatoria (hunter's chicken stew) from his book jamie's italy. i know i say everything is delicious but this was really DELICIOUS!!!
if you love chicken, red wine, rosemary and stews then you'll love it. such simple ingredients but such amazing flavour. it filled the apartment with the most wonderful aroma whilst it was in the oven. kev hates olives but we cooked the dish with them in and then just picked them out for him. he still loved it even though olives had been cooked in the sauce. and we added white beans into the pot about 15 minutes before dishing up (couldn't find cannellini beans). it was a recipe for 4 but we ended up eating most of it ourselves. oohps! (i hadn't eaten all week though. thats my excuse!).


  1. i'm hungry. let's have a lunch date!

  2. Hi there,

    Warm regards,

  3. 29: yes lets!

    amy: thanks v much for the comment and for linking to my blog! :)

  4. Looks good. I will give it a try.

  5. Looks as yummy as the same dish I had for dinner at a friend's house a couple days ago! It tasted delicious too!

    I leafed through this Jamie Oliver book and found it quite authentic (I cook mostly Italian). I applaud him for collecting and publishing the real thing!
