Lunch was quick and easy, chicken scallop with mashed potatoes,salad and some baked fennels.

I have lots of these from our friends farm so thought I’ll try baking some,tastes really nice. You only add salt,pepper, olive oil and a bit of balsamic vinegar and bake uncovered in a well heated oven, that’s it.

Well have to go get ready,bye now!

Chicken Burgers.

Hello everybody. As every Friday what to eat for lunch is always a problem.

I was about to tell the boys to order food cause I was busy helping my brother moving his stuff to his new house. Can’t believe my little bro getting married this week. I’m so excited ♡♥♡♥.

Back to lunch plans, found out I do have time to cook when done, kids said burgers, decided to make chicken not beef this time for a change. Also I made hot potatoes as a side dish, will try new kind of mixed spices i bought last Saturday.

Ingredients and method:

* 3 big boneless chicken breasts finely chopped.

* 1 chili pepper.

* 1 green pepper.

* 2 cloves garlic.

*1 small onion.

* 1/2 cup bread crumbs.

* 1/2 cup milk.

* salt and pepper.

* mix all ingredients very well in food processor .

* wet your hand with water and form round balls, cover them with bread crumbs and flat them to burgers.

* keep in fridge to harden for 1 hour.

* grill them or roast in the oven till golden.

* serve with veggies and cheese.

Potatoes were good but kids said spices I usually use are tastier, these have too much curry. image image image image image image image image image
