Goodbye for now (and Mary Berry's Devilled chicken with courgette couscous)...

God it's been so long since I've last posted! I can't even remember my fonts and the layout! Again, hugeeee apologies for not keeping up with this blog. I've finished my exams, been on a trip around South-East Asia and am now preparing to move to London and start at the LSE on my law course. I'm still cooking and baking as much as I can and once I have a routine sorted out, will hopefully be the Student Chef again and reviewing London restaurants. 

But for now, I leave you with this heavenly recipe, Mary Berry's devilled chicken - a sweet, sticky sauce that I serve with courgette couscous and vegetables or salad.

Please keep checking back as I do want to keep blogging in the future!

Ingredients - (this is the original recipe although I like mine saucey to coat the couscous too so I triple or quadruple this recipe).
Chicken breasts with the bone in (one per person)
1 heaped tablespoon apricot jam
1tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp crushed chilli flakes
1 large clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp  tomato ketchup
1 tbsp soy sauce

For the couscous - Roughly 100g dried couscous per person
2 courgettes, grated
2 red onions, grated
Garlic flavoured olive oil
Black pepper

Serve with vegetables - I used runner beans and corn on the cob straight from my Mum's vegetable patch but you can use whatever you want or a green salad.

1. Make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl and then cover the chicken breasts in a oven proof dish, leave to marinade in the fridge.
2. Cook in the oven at about 150c with foil over the dish for about an hour and then take the foil off for the last 30 mins.
3. Make the couscous by toasting the courgette and onion in a pan and then mix into the couscous (that's been cooked with boiling water as per instructions on the pack) and then stir in with some garlic oil.
4. Cook the vegetables and serve all together when the chicken has cooked, tender and is basically falling off the bone.
- I use the couscous as a base, the chicken and sauce on top and then have the vegetables on the side. It's seriously delicious, my parents want it again and again!
