Kirstin: I would definitely recommend making the slaw. But even with my best attempts at putting the chilli peppers into our food processor they still tended to slip in sideways and did not end up the way they looked in the picture! That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the sauce; not very nice by itself but I thought it tasted ok with the chicken. However, this recipe was a tad uninspiring. I do hope this isn’t the start of a sad month of average recipes. Gah!
Kirstin: Another year, another Jamie Oliver book.
Maureen: Last year’s Superfood one, which is a companion, I guess, to this one, was not a huge success with us. I guess he feels compelled to release a book a year, but I sort of wish he would take some time off. But this one could be interesting as it’s for families. But you know how I feel about the whole superfood thing.
Kirstin: I do indeed! I’m hoping to cook a few of these with Miles as he seems to be getting into the whole cooking thing. And a whole chapter on Traybakes. Oh yes!
Maureen: Well at least there’s traybakes. The rest of it seems a bit joyless, but maybe he will prove me wrong. Jamie & Jools just had their fifth child, a boy called River.
Kirstin: I wonder if they’ll have any time to cook from the book themselves!
Maureen: To give credit where credit is due, at least they give their children interesting names.
