Are you after the ride this valentines day? Have the perfect date lined up but not 100% sure you have the looks, sense of humor or style to pull it off? Well there is one sure fire way to impress that special lady (or fella) and that is cooking up a storm. Forget going out to valentines day restaurants that are all full of other douchebag loving couples and whip off the clothes, put on nothing but an apron and give this recipe a bash. It’s only bleeding gorgeous.
It might be one of the fanciest meals of the year but the ingredients are really fucking simple.
Start with the garlic. Couple of cloves means you'll both be stinking of garlic so all good!
Chop the shit out of it and make it nice and fine,
Get a nice medium sized pot and lash in a good glug of olive oil.
Nice low heat and slowly cook the garlic. Like the riding later in the night slower the better.
When the garlic starts smelling good lash in the tin of tomatoes,
Slice up loads of the basil into nice thin pieces. Thinner the better.
Lash half the basil into a large bowl with the goat's cheese
Made sure it's been mixed in evenly. The basil is going to make this taste bad ass
Grab the two breasts (insert your own jokes here) and pop them onto a chopping board.
This is the tricky part. Use a sharp knife to slice out a little pocket. This is where the stuffing is going to go.
The chicken should look like this. NIce and thin but a lovely little pocket so as you can roll it up.
Lash a good bit of the goat's cheese into the middle.
Roll the bastards up so as the stuffing is in the middle and the chicken is completely wrapped around it
Your breasts should look like this now. Back in their original shape with the cheese in the middle
Gran the parma ham out and roll it out flat with a couple of slices per portion on the chopping board.
Lash the chicken breasts into the parma ham.
Roll them up and pop them into a an oven proof. Then you are going to fuck it into the oven for about 20 minutes at 180C.
At this stage the sauce should be getting nice and thick. Patience is the key here. Nothing more.
Grab the spuds and peel them
Cut the fuckers into nice even sized pieces. They have to all be the same size so as the fuckers all cook at the same speed.
Lash on a frying pan onto a medium heat and fuck in a good whack of olive oil.
When the pan heats up lash in the potatoes.
While the potatoes start cooking grab the mange tout
Slice them up nice and thin.
Keep the spuds cooking evenly and moving at all times. They may be spuds but they'll cook super fast because they are so small
The sauce should be thick. No need to blend it just season up with a bit of salt and pepper.
The potatoes should be getting golden brown now. Make sure not to burn them. Golden fucking brown please.
When they are soft and cooked lash in the veg.
You'll only need to cook them for about a minute max. Keep the nice green colour.
Lash the remainder of the basil into the tomato sauce.
While all that fancy cooking shit has been going on the chicken should be perfectly cooked.
Start plating up by serving the sauce on the plate. Super simple but should be packed full of goodness.
Lash the potatoes and veg onto the sauce.
When the chicken has rested for about 2 minutes slice the bastard up into about 3 or 4 pieces. Make sure it is cooked through because the last thing you want to do is poison your date.
It should look like this. Simple. Quick and tasting awesome. If you don't get the ride after this then you may as well give up. They just weren't the one for you!!
We’ve achieved a lot of things on this little blog in a small space of time but if this recipe doesn’t create the first Lovin Dublin baby then we’ll be pretty pissed off. Fire up the oven, go and find yourself a date, dim the lights and crank up the cheesy music. We’ve done everything we can the rest is up to you. You can share photos of your ride (recipe) in the comments below!!!
