BBC Good Food recipe

I have had a few requests to get back to doing food posts.Well seen as that is what Slimming World is all about I'll practice what I preach. Tonight I have adapted a BBC Good Food recipe.

                                          One-pot roast pork chop with Fennel
I have added and substituted a few of the ingredients below. I used rosemary instead of Thyme as I had none, some normal tomato paste, I used loin chops without the bone (all fat trimmed) and I added some vine tomatoes.


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the potatoes, fennel, pepper, thyme and garlic in a large roasting tin. Mix together the tomato paste and stock, then pour into the pan. Tightly cover with foil and cook for 30 mins. Take out of the oven and increase the temperature to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
  2. Remove the foil and place the pork in the roasting tin, nestling in between the veg. Season well and return to the oven for 15-20 mins more or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with the pan juices drizzled over.
Make it with chicken
Put 8 chicken thighs on top of the veg before covering and cooking. When the oven temperature increases and the foil comes off, stir 250g cherry tomatoes into the veg and drizzle the chicken with olive oil. Finish cooking as above, then eat with dollops of pesto.
