In The Kitchen 10...


Something quick and easy...

Mustard Chicken + Lemon Cous Cous

I rustled up some chicken and cous cous this evening and decided to share the recipe with you. Unfortunately I didn't take step by step pictures, but it is a simple and easy meal, so the recipe should suffice. 

For the Chicken I used...

2 Chicken Fillet
4 tbs Wholegrain Mustard
3 tbs Chilli Flakes
1 tbs Garlic Powder
2 Maggi Cubes
1 tbs Mixed Italian Herb

For the Cous Cous I used...

4 tbs Cous Cous
Oil (a few drops)
Salt (Literally a pinch!)
1 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Chilli Flakes
Courgette
Fresh Lemon Juice

What to do....

Wash the chicken thoroughly with water and lemon juice, then marinade the chicken using the wholegrain mustard and the other seasonings. Either leave the chicken to marinade overnight or for a couple of hours. Once the chicken has marinated, cook the chicken in a griddle pan. I don't actually remember how long I cooked the chicken for, but you can cook it however you like as long as you don't overcook it. I made incisions in the chicken whilst it was cooking to check if it was ready. 

Now onto the cous cous! Soak the cous cous in a bowl of hot water and a tiny amount of oil, and cover it till its ready. The water should be just above the cous cous, ance once its ready it should be light and fluffy. As soon as the chicken has cooked, remove it from the griddle pan and add the courgettes until it has cooked/ grilled, this takes roughly about 3-5 minutes. Add the cous cous along with the extra seasoning and lemon juice; the extra seasoning is needed as cous cous is very bland.

And there you have it! A tasty, simple and healthy meal!





Enjoy!

Designer Love: Jean-Pierre Braganza...


ARCHITECTONIC
SS15

In the words of the designer, "Rough and dark but bewitching in elegance." 
The Jean-Pierre Braganza show was one of the shows where I loved every single look. I loved everything about the pieces from the colour palette to the engine prints and cut.











LFW SS15 FAVOURITES...


I've finally got around to sharing some of my favourite LFW runway looks. I got tickets to the Bora Aksu, Christopher Raeburn, Fyodor Golan and Jean-Pierre Braganza shows, and fell in love with their collection.

Bora Aksu 

The collection is so pretty and is very ladylike. It is filled with soft colours, lace and sheer material.


Fyodor Golan 

The Fyodor Golan was amazing, I absolutely loved the location which was The Vaults. The collection was very colourful and fun. 


Christopher Raeburn

The collection called ASCENT "explores the lightness and freedom of flight". It is a great mix of style and sustainability. I love the variety in the materials and textures.



Barbara Casasola

I really love the looks below from Barbara Casasola, it is definitely something that I would wear. I love the simplicity of the looks and the colour palette.


Erdem

I've always been a big fan of Erdem, and have done a few posts on the designer. I cannot get over their SS15 collection! The botanical theme ran throughout the collection, with a colour palette of mostly green and brown.


Holly Fulton  

I love every single look from Holly Fulton,  
from the 60s vibe, to the monochrome and the patterns.
