“This is adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe in "Jamie's Kitchen". It's so easy to make and is delicious. Goes beautifully with chicken breast fillets stuffed with feta, olives and whatever else you like .....YUM! To fit in with 'Zaar's publishing requirements, I have put in specific quantities for the salt and pepper, whereas the original recipe doesn't, so please change them to suit your personal taste.”
