Jamie's chicken cacciatore

Raiding the fridge on a Saturday morning can be good for everyone. Chicken thighs, potatoes, carrots, olives and some kind of magical tomato flavour base that not even the gods could have created

Parsley pesto on olive sourdough...of course!

Oh wow this was the yummiest spread ever! I was given 2 bags of parsley picked fresh from one of our gardens somewhere. 2 shopping bags! Huge amounts of green goodness...mmmmmmm...

I had some walnuts in the cupboard so I googled "parsley and walnuts" and this is what I got...omg mine looks so much nicer than theirs. I used about 1.5 times the parsley and didn't toast the walnuts so it was much creamier. I would suggest using a bit less parmesan as it was quite rich.

La Madre Bakery from Geeeeeeelong make about the best olive sourdough I have had but their other breads are also great. Really quality artisan bread that doesn't sit heavy.

Luv ju!

Luv ju too loving earth chocolate
