Easter Sunday dawned bright and warm here in Le Marche - perfect for a glass of something outside in the sunshine before settling down to a festive lunch!!!!
I know lamb is traditional, but one of our guests is not a red meat fan, so I decided on chicken.....well, three chickens actually. I love the combination of chicken and citrus and used beautiful, juicy local lemons, (literally a gift from next door's garden) and mandarins to add flavour and contribute to a rich, tasty gravy!
And to follow? Chocolate of course! A rich chocolate cake inspired by a Nigel Slater recipe and then Cornflake cakes, little eggs and pride of place - Easter Chickens, Lidl style! I'm a big fan of Lidl's chocolate and this was no disappointment.
I hope you have had a restful and happy time as well.
