As the sun starts to reappear and the temperature in Melbourne rises I start to desire to change the things that I cook from slow braise lamb shanks to barbecues and salads.
I am always struggling to get my girls Zoe and Olivia to cook dinner and encourage them to get into the kitchen. If it’s an easy meal the girls are happy to give it a go.
One of their favourite meals utilises the steamer. We steam chicken breasts for around about 10 minutes, hard/soft boil eggs for around 6 minutes, wash some coz lettuce, fry some bacon with some crusty croutons slice shave some Parmesan and with some delicious dressing we have a delicious tender juicy caesar chicken salad.
I have found that steaming the chicken breast provides a softer juicer chicken meat which is less tougher than its fried version. Remember steaming is at lower temperature than frying,plus it’s fat free !!
