Would you believe that once upon a time I was a vegetarian. I actually forget this little fact about myself as I'm now such a lover of meat. Smoother a perfectly grilled piece of steak in bernaise sauce and I'm your friend for life.
However for many years I would turn my nose up to any and all meat.
These days, I tend to eat red meat maybe 2 times a week, however chicken is steadily getting a more regular apearance in my diet. Always concerned about dry, tasteless chicken, I'm constantly on the lookout for new recipes. Quick, simple and tasty new recipes actually, and here's one I think you might like...I did!
