Chicken with porcini, parsley sauce & spinach (page 42)

Switch & Mix

The porcini sauce is delicious with the salmon on page 55, the pork chop on page 83 or the burger/mince steak on page 111. Season them as per this recipe and then cook them for the time I give you on their individual recipes. In the case of the pork chops, add the pan juices to the porcini sauce. Yum.

Whatever you eat this glorious sauce with, make sure that you have some bread to soak up every last drop.

 



Practical Playtime / Jobs For The Kids

  • Brush the seasoning(s) onto and all over the chicken breasts.
  • Put the chicken breasts on the baking tray and make sure the kids wash their hands very well afterwards. Explain to kids that raw chicken can give them food poisoning. 
  • Measure the dried porcini, tell kids to have a sniff, the porcini smell like vegemite! 
  • Measure the double cream.
  • Wash and dry the spinach if necessary.  
  • Pick the parsley leaves from their stalks. 
  • Measure the vegetable oil.

My Cooking With Kids Recipe Diary

Note to readers For the Chicken Breast chapter My Cooking With Kids Recipe Dairy is less diary-like than the diaries about the other hero ingredients in ADVENTURES WITH INGREDIENTS. This is because I wrote the diary entries as a series of tasting notes which went into the book's recipe introductions, before I decided to write the fuller diaries with this site in mind. I will add to the Chicken Breast diary as time goes on.
