You don't need any fancy labeled sauces for this simple recipe. Please read through first. I did not check the weight but here it goes: You will need (for a family of 4):
  • 6 medium sized chicken thighs
  • 2 peeled plum tomatoes in juice
  • 1 large red Spanish onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 3/4 tsp of fennel seeds
  • salt to taste
Wash the chicken thoroughly, pat dry and cook for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at gas mark 7. Blend all the ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Cook for a further 45 minutes, turning over every 15 minutes. Serve with boiled skinned potatoes and salad. The juices from the chicken can be used to dress the salad. Buon appetit NOTES: I used sunflower as I did not want the oil to overpower the taste of the spices. Don't use too much fennel seeds as this can end up being bitter

This afternoon, I decided to experiment with this simple recipe I came up with which (fingers crossed) will help deodorise the fridge. I will post my results later but feel free to try it yourself.
7g essential oils (I had a premixed bottle of French lavender & English eucalyptus)

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the essential oils and stir till you get the "bread crumb" effect.
I used a powder shaker to hold the mix. Don't forget to label the container!
