“Hot Italian Chicken with Peppers and Chilli” from “A Bird in the Hand”

Tim: Whoa. This is spicy.

Maureen: Yes. It really is. And if we’re saying that it’s spicy, that’s really something because we love spicy food. I had to put a lot of chilli flakes in this. [Pauses to find recipe.] Actually, it’s only three teaspoons of the chilli flakes, but it tastes like there’s a lot more than that in there. What do you boys think?

Nicholas (11): I like the chicken, but it’s very spicy.

Andrew (15): It’s probably too spicy for me.

Maureen: Well, it’s progress, of a sort. A few years ago, you would have pushed your plate away and refused to eat any more.

Nicholas: Well, we are older.

Maureen: Yes, older, but not necessarily more mature.

Tim: Would you make it again?

Maureen: I probably would, because it’s a good weeknight dinner, as this is basically a tray bake, albeit one with loads of chilli flakes. When I make it again, I’ll add less chilli flakes. The boys might like it better then.
