It is a wonderful bright and sunny day in Cape Town. I am sitting in the study and I am feeling very content! The sun is streaming in through the west facing windows and I can hear birds singing. The swimming pool just outside the door is bright blue. For some or other reason everything looks light and bright today, and colourful! I love days like today and will remember it in the months to come, when Cape Town will be grey and gloomy!
Well, back to food! I did not post a Meal in Minutes last week but I made this quick meal last Wednesday. It contains a lot of my most favourite ingredients. (I think I will replace the chicken with thick slices of beef biltong, next time!
8 pita breads
600g chicken fillets, sliced in strips
30ml olive oil
salt and black pepper
175g peppadrops chutney cream cheese
16 to 20 peppadews, chopped
4 Danish feta strips, cubed (I used Mediterranean Delicacies’s Feta)
Verlaque Balsamic reduction (I used Cape Lemon olive oil and Rasberry)
Heat the olive oil and butter in a Wok to medium heat.
Season the chicken strips with salt, black pepper and paprika to taste.
Stir fry the chicken strips for approximately 15 minutes till cooked.
Heat the pita breads according to packet instructions and slice open to form a pocket.
Spread some cream cheese on the pita bread.
Top with the rocket leaves, cooked chicken, peppadews and feta.
Drizzle with the Verlaque Balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.
Did you know that Rocket is an excellent source of Vitamin C and Potassium? It is considered as an aphrodisiac. Every part of the plant above the ground can be eaten. The leaves have a mild peppery taste. The flowers can be used in many dishes and as an edible garnish. The seeds and seed pods are also edible. Rocket is also known as Arugula.
Have a wonderful evening!
