I wanted to share with you one of the dinners I made for my family over the summer break! I'm not trying to be modiste but It tasted amazing and thats why it want to share the recipe with you. I decided to make a chicken roulade something I had never made before. Once again like my Lemon and Gin Cake recipe, It was out of my current favourite cookbook, Little and Friday Celebrations. By the picture I was a little bit weary that it was not going to turn out like that, but I decided to challenge myself, and fortunately for me it did :) This is such a great recipe for occasions such as family lunches and dinner parties.
I hope you enjoy, and try It out for yourself! Trust me you won't be disappointed!
