On Tuesday nights I try to use up any leftovers I have from the weekend, this week I had a tub of Broccoli pesto to finish off from Sunday nights burgers. On the way home I tried to pull together the different strands to make a proper meal. Chicken is always good – especially with pasta, but the one thing that was missing was the kick.
Broccoli Pesto is subtle and creamy, I don’t want to overpower the pesto but also didn’t want the pesto to be the only flavour in the dish. This is where the light chilli coating on the chicken comes in, it gives enough of a bite without drowning out the pesto.
Yesterday I found a new food blog Smitten Kitchen I am sure you have all been reading it for years… I then found it again when I did a search for “Leek Quiche” this morning. I am starting to branch out of my cooking and baking comfort zone and what better way to start than with a summer quiche!
I loved the look of this Leek and Mushroom Quiche and decided to give it a go.
