This recipe was made on Sunday 23rd September, the day it rained and it rained and it rained! We needed a meal to brighten up the day, so I opened the cookery books and found this gem in Jamie’s Dinners. I luckily had all the ingredients bar one, I had no smoked bacon/pancetta, Serrano Ham would have to do. Jamie recommends fresh corn on cob, but again it would have to be tinned, I had some leftover creamed celeriac which would also be added. Once cooked the dish really brought a ray of sunshine to such a grim day and it was good with the Serrano Ham, but a good smoked bacon would have added that extra wonderful flavour to the dish.
2 chicken breasts skinned removed
1 tin sweetcorn
1 tin cannellini or butter beans, drained
1 peeled banana
salt & pepper
150ml double cream
6 rashers of smoked bacon or pancetta
squash up half the beans and add sweetcorn to a tray
Serve with a crisp green salad, this one I added some orange to match the sweetness of the chicken.
