Recently my parents came to visit me in London to see the new flat and go for lunch. The parents came around midday and saw the flat. One of my first comments my Dad said was
“You should knock through this wall”
Odd comment as we don’t own the flat! I think they approved of the high ceiling, but not sure what else.
We then went out to Cattle grid Steak house Restaurant for lunch. The slogan for the restaurant is
Cow – Pig – Crustaceans – Cocktails
With such an enticing slogan, how can you resist trying it out.
I had Half a Chicken, with Piri Piri Sauce and Chips.
It was nice. The restaurant felt like gastro pub standard. I’d go again but I wouldn’t go on a special occasion. If I was being honest, I was expecting more of a wow after worshiping the slogan.
Afterwards we met up with my brother and his girlfriend. We went to all bar one, had coffees/ teas/ alcoholic drinks. Not long after all bar one, my parents left and we carried on drinking in a cool bar, that played awesome music, and ended up at Pizza Express, quite drunk. Pizza Express was so good!
This post’s recipe is chicken burger. It tasted like a chicken burger from a fast food joint (which was excellent because that is what we were going for). We’ve never tried to make chicken burgers before, which is odd because I only seem to order chicken burgers at fast food joints.
It was delicious and we made it with garlic butter chips and home made aioli (like mayo)

Cooking Time: 45 minutes
2 chicken breasts, butterflied and cut into 2
3 slices white bread
1 heaped tbsp oregano
1 heaped tbsp. chilli flakes
Salt and pepper
2 eggs, whisked

200ml olive oil
2 limes, juice of
2 garlic cloves, peeled, finely chopped
2 egg yokes

Blitz the bread with oregano, chilli, salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken in flour, eggs then bread.
Place on a baking tray.
Cook for 20-30 minutes in the oven, or until cooked through.
Blitz the garlic, lime and eggs together.
Slowly drizzle in the olive oil whilst blitzing, until a thick mayo consistency is created.

Slice the buns.
A couple of minutes before taking the chicken out, put the buns in the oven, to warm up.
Place the chicken on the bun with lettuce and a dollop of lime aioli.
