Sicilian Lemon Chicken
GF / DF / SF / 297 Cal in a 350g portion / 212 Cal in a 250g portion
Free-range Irish chicken, cooked in traditional Sicilian style with fresh fennel, juicy green olives and preserved lemon with a hint of cinnamon in a sumptuous sauce of Italian plum tomatoes.
A superbly tasty traditional. This dish would commonly be served with fluffy couscous but it's just as good with long grain brown rice or some crunchy roast potatoes which you can find in our side dishes section.
