Winston will not eat any sort of salad leaves or cheese (I thought kids were supposed to love cheese?) unless they are masquerading as something else or cooked. I have tried countless times (and will keep trying) but W does this strange dramatic quiver as soon as either touch his lips – I think it must be the texture…and the hubs won’t eat cheese (I’m not sure what his excuse is) so I add them to meals instead, as I love both dearly.
This is a recipe for sweet potato fries (which I recently had for lunch at a friends house and can’t get enough of) and feta and spinach stuffed chicken – which was scoffed by both hubs and the babe. Success! Time-wise the sweet potato fries must go in about 15 minutes before the chicken.
Sweet Potato Fries
2 large sweet potatoes (skins on) cut into thin chunks
Two tablespoons of olive oil
A heaped tablespoon of paprika
Salt & pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 200 C
2. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.
3. Put onto a baking tray and place in the oven
4.. Bake until crispy on the edges (approx 30-35 mins).
Feta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken
4 chicken breasts bashed with a rolling pin until flat
4 generous handfuls of spinach
2 cloves of crushed garlic
Half a block of feta cheese crumbled
A dash of water
Salt & pepper
1. Lay the flattened chicken onto a chopping board covered in cling film.
2. In a pan add the olive oil and start to sweat the garlic. After a few minutes add a tiny bit of water and the spinach. Wilt nicely but don’t overdo it.
3. Once the spinach has wilted add the crumbled feta cheese, salt & pepper and stir.
4. Split the mixture evenly and then place on top of the chicken. Roll up! Add all the juice from the pan so none goes to waste.
5. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 mins until cooked through.
We had it with corn on the cob but salad would go nicely!
