Fry the seasoned sliced chicken fillets in oil. Prepare the sliced potatoes and diced onions and put to one side.

Add the remaining potatoes and onions and season with salt and pepper. Pour the cream into the pan. Bake at 200°C for about 1 hour until the top is nice and crispy.

4 tbs Hillfarm Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil
4 medium Potatoes – Peeled (optional) and cut into 3cm pieces
2 medium sweet potatoes – Peeled and cut into 4cm pieces
4 Carrots – Peeled and halved, cut into 4cm lengths
2 Fennel – Quartered lengthways
10 Shallots – Peeled and halved
6 - 10 garlic cloves – Peeled (Optional)
10 cherry tomatoes
2 tbs dried or fresh rosemary
2 tbs dried or fresh thyme
1 tsp dried or fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon rind
Pre-heat oven to 200 °C and Heat the oil in a roasting dish until hot. Prepare all the vegetables and mix them together in a bowl (except tomatoes) with the herbs and salt & pepper.
Add the mixed vegetables to the hot oil and mix well to fully coat them and place the pan into the oven for 45 - 50 minutes or until golden and fork soft. Add the tomatoes 5 minutes before the other vegetables are fully cooked.
Meanwhile mix together the lemon juice and rind. Once the vegetables are cooked, toss in the lemon mixture and serve. Most vegetables are great roasted, try experimenting with seasonal herbs and vegetables through the year.
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Grated rind and juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 medium onions
3 bell peppers (1 green, 1 red & 1 yellow)
50ml Hillfarm Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil
6 flour tortillas
A handful of grated Cheddar per tortilla
Guacamole, salsa and soured cream/crème fresh to serve
Slice the chicken breasts into 2cm wide strips and place in a large bowl. Add the lime rind and juice, caster sugar, oregano, cayenne and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
Cut the onions in half and thinly slice. Cut the peppers in half, remove the cores and seeds and slice into 1cm wide strips.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and stir fry the marinated chicken for 5-6 minutes. Add the onions and peppers and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the vegetables soft and tender.
Meanwhile, prepare the tortillas. Using long tongs carefully slide each tortilla quickly over a gas or electric hob set to high heat. Repeat until light brown marks start to appear, take care not to burn as this makes the tortilla crisp and impossible to roll. This process adds colour and flavour. Place each browned tortilla onto a plate and sprinkle a handful of cheese evenly over the surface. Place into a microwave for about 45 seconds until the cheese has melted. Prepare one tortilla per guest.
Transfer the chicken mixture into a serving bowl and take to the table with the tortillas, guacamole, salsa and soured cream/crème fresh.
To serve, each guest takes a prepared tortilla, and places some chicken mixture in a line down the centre from the top edge to within 5cm of the bottom edge. Add guacamole, salsa and soured cream to taste. Fold the bottom edge over the filling from where the mixture ends (5cm from the bottom). Fold the right hand edge over the mixture and squeeze slightly to pack in the filling. Finally roll from right to left to create a perfect envelope, enjoy from the open end.
