Herb mozzarella chicken - Cooking, Coaching & Conversations with Dr Lucy Burns

recipes Aug 17, 2022
 

This week Dr Lucy actually followed a recipe! She made this delicious herb mozzarella recipe, from our fabulous friends, Thermo Foodie & The Chef. This is a very easy weeknight dinner that can be made using a thermomix or without.

A note from Dr LucyLast night I cooked a Thermo Foodie recipe and it is clear that I don't cook with recipes very often. In this recipe, I added the broccoli to the dish and popped it back in the oven. The dish came out and was deliciously tasty but a bit watery. I thought, "this is weird, Thermo Foodie test all their recipes". So I went back and reread the recipe and realised the broccoli is supposed to be served separately. Ahh, reflection is such a powerful tool.
