Jamie's 15 Minute Meals Challenge #6



This is round one of the J.O. vs Jo 15 minutes smack down, I am testing Jamie Oliver's recipes for his new 15 minute meals book. If you are playing along, leave a comment with your blog post link or just talk us through it in the comments section.

Recipe #6 Golden Chicken pg 48

Sourcing the ingredients:
Everything was for the regular supermarket

Ready, steady, cook...

This was probably the easiest meal to date. I had to slice the potatoes by hand because I don't have a fancy gadget to do it for me, so I lost a bit of time there. Everything else came together really quickly and easily.




Verdict
J.O.'s time 15 minutes
Jo's time 18 minutes
Family opinion - Daddy Ebi - 9/10
                           Me - 9/10
                       Ebi-kun 8/10 (lost a point because of the leeks, one of the very few things he doesn't like)

I am sure I only lost time with the slicing of the potatoes, I can live with that!

Notes to self:
No extra notes to add this time. Not only was this recipe one of the easiest to put together it also required the least amount of washing up. What I have noticed that these meals can be thrown together really quickly but they generate a mountain of dirty pots, pans and dishes. In that respect, I am not convinced it saves you much time.

I would love to make this a community post so if you are joining please comment below, if you have landed here from a facebook group, I would love it if you could add your comments here rather than facebook so that everyone can read your feedback. If you have blogged about one of the 15 minute or 30 minute recipes then feel free to leave the link to the actual post and remember to say which recipe you used in the comment.

I have also started a pinterest board for my photos for the challenge, it you are a fellow pinterest addict and would like to contribute to the board, let me know and leave your pinterest name in the comments.
