Haloumi, I love you

Looking for one of the world's easiest yet most IMPRESSIVE dishes?

Well, look no further.

Who else but Donna Hay to the rescue?

I don't know you about you, but I've been LOVING her fast, fresh, simple show on Foxtel. It made me go out and buy the cookbook of the same name and instead of just flicking through the pages marvelling at the pretty pictures and beautiful ingredients, the Hay-meister made it look so easy on the silver screen that I could even do it myself.

The latest of my little ventures was her baked chicken with haloumi, honey and lemon. OMG. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD.

SO easy yet SO impressive.

Chicken with haloumi and honey
Serves 2
2 x 200g chicken breast fillets, trimmed
150g haloumi, cut into 4 slices
1 tablespoon shredded lemon zest
6 sprigs lemon thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
  1. Place the chicken, haloumi, zest and lemon thyme in a ceramic baking dish.
  2. Combine the oil and honey and pour over.
  3. Bake for 18–20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Serve with a fig and rocket salad.
