Hunters chicken sw friendly recipe.



To make the BBQ Sauce
  1. 3 shallots
  2. Half a teaspoon of chilli powder (or more, if you like it hot)
  3. Half a carton of passata — about 250ml
  4. 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  5. 4 tablespoons of artificial sweetener
To make the chicken
  1. The above BBQ sauce
  2. 4 chicken breasts
  3. 8 slices of bacon
  4. 112g cheddar
  5. Green veg, to serve
To make the sauce
  1. Peel and finely chop the shallots. Put them in a frying pan, sprinkle the chilli powder over the top and fry them for about six minutes until they’re soft
  2. Once the shallots have softened just add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Keep the sauce on a medium to high heat and stir it occasionally — it should thicken up nicely
For the chicken
  1. Pre-heat the oven to about 210C. Spray a roasting tin/baking tray with Fry Light and lay the chicken breasts in them. Then slit the breast down the middle to make a pocket
  2. When the sauce is ready, spread it in the slits and over the top of the chicken breasts
  3. Take the bacon and either wrap it round the breast or lay it over the top. Then put the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes
  4. Sprinkle an ounce of the cheese over the top of the breast and put back into the oven for another 10 minutes
  5. Serve it with the vegetables
I got the recipe here.

We all enjoyed this, there was too much of the bbq style sauce left so I've popped it into the freezer for another night as we'll definitely be making it again.

I also made some home-made wedges, by cutting some potatoes into wedge shapes and par-boiling them, then spraying with oil and adding a sachet of mixed herbs and spices. We had baked beans with it too. Very filling. I know, technically, I should have had this with a side salad or veg to get in my 3rd superfree, however, there are totally onions in the sauce ;-)
