Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Home Grown Veg

I've cropped the first of the vegetables from my veg plot yesterday. It's late this year.....

I was late planting and have done little watering to anything other than the courgettes and beans. It's been so dry and arrid a few potato plants have died. I wasn't expecting any potatoes as they haven't been watered at all - but was pleasantly surprised by a nice haul of little Charlotte potatoes from a withered and dead plant !

These are round yellow zucchini / courgettes. Since then, another 2 were ready tonight. They are very prolific once they get going !

Slice into rounds and put in a roasting dish. Drizzle with olive oil and some fresh herbs (oregano here) and season. 15 minutes in the oven at 180deg C and they're done lovely. I cooked the onion the same way and remaining fennel from the night before.

For the garlic chicken, insert a shap knife lengthways into the chicken breast fillet to make a pocket. Put a good teaspoon of butter inside with some fresh garlic and any other finely minced herbs. Bake in 180degC oven for 20mins.... then scatter over some parmesan and cook for another 10mins

There was plenty of veg without potatoes..... but since they were the first of th year we had some new potatoes with mint too !
