A delicious piece of tender chicken covered in orange and lager sauce along with bell peppers and plenty of herbs perfectly suited for the sweet tooth.

Because ♪ ♫ a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go down-wown, the medicine go down… ♩♬

 For the marinade you’re gonna need some white wine along with a blended mix of:

1 celery stalk

2 bay leaves

4-5 whole medium cardamoms


1 tsp sweet paprika

1 tbsp olive oil

Make sure you cover the chicken and herbs with white wine and put it in the fridge overnight.

The next day remove from fridge and prepare your meal. You’re going to need:

4 chicken or turkey fillets

2 chopped onions (preferably caramelised)

1 leek

7-8 different-coloured peppers

fresh thyme

fresh coriander

a small glass of freshly squeezed orange juice

1 can of lager

some more olive oil

salt and pepper

1 tbsp of flour to thicken the sauce

Brown the chicken fillets along with the leek and slowly add the onions, the peppers and the herbs. Keep stirring for 5 minutes and finally pour over the orange juice and the lager. Simmer for 1 hour. Once the chicken and peppers are tender, remove them from the pan and thicken the sauce with some flour.

Serve with basmati rice or potato puree.

Bon Appétit!

Food for thought

The IMF admitted to having miscalculated the effects of austerity on countries like Greece thus causing over 1m people losing their jobs, over 3000 people committing suicide and the country’s prospects of recovery slim. So, they went only 200% off the mark; what’s the big deal?

Then they admitted that austerity does not work after all calling the UK government to reassess their fiscal policy.

And finally concluded that the medicine may be killing the patient but they will persist in administering it against all evidence probably because, as the renowned economist Billy Mitchell points out in this article, austeritarian economists have confused economics with religion.

So help us God.
