1 glove garlic crushed
2 shallots finely chopped
250g chicken livers (cleaned)
1/2 tbs sage
1/4 cup dry white wine

Nuts & Bolts

Stuffing Method:

1. In a large frying pan on medium heat add oil, garlic and shallots and sweet down for 3-4 minutes. Add chicken livers cook for 1 minute.

2. Add wine, cook until all wine has evaporated. Add sage and pine nuts, cook for a further 2 minutes. Take pan of the heat.

3. In a food processor add liver mixture, bread that has been soaked in water ( make sure water has been drained from bread)
lemon zest, Parmesan cheese and season to taste. Mix well in the blender. Set aside until later.

1. Preheat oven to 200c.

2. Cut each chicken fillet almost in half and open out like a book. Stuff the liver mixture inside then close up. Wrap each fillet in bacon rashes. If you have some butcher string tie around fillet -3 time so it holds it shape, and easier to handle.

3. In a large frying pan add oil and sear of all sides of the fillet to crisp up the bacon.

4. Place in a roasting tray, covered with foil for 20 minutes.

5. After 20 minutes of cooking take of foil and cook uncovered for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked.

When serving poor all the delicious pan juices over the chicken.

I live in Adelaide (Australia) with my husband, my two adorable Norwegian cats ( Zeus and Zena ), a chicken, and a pigeon who now also thinks that he is a chicken! My ancestry is French so it goes without saying that my favourite place is Paris. The food, culture and atmosphere of Paris is nothing short of amazing.

I am a self taught home cook who loves big flavours in food. My passion for food surfaced when I was 10 years old, watching TV chef Ian Hewitson and learning different techniques. Since then, the food of Adrian Richardson and Jamie Oliver has been my inspiration. I love how one can create a healthy full flavoured meal from just the simplest of ingredients. I especially love chilli and garlic and use them in most of my food.

I enjoy hosting dinner parties for friends and family. Curries and rustic style dishes are my firm favorites and I know that my family and friends all agree! Just place it all in the middle of the table and let everyone help themselves enjoying great food with good company.

I create flavoursome low calorie recipes which are featured on the internationally known website Weigh Yourself Slim.

Whilst I enjoy cooking I still love to go out to restaurants, especially when you discover ones with amazing food and that you must try and replicate at home!

So welcome to CCKFOOD. It is my creative playground where I am able to share my love of good food with you all. Enjoy.
