Supper: chicken pieces with sweet potato halves, roasted courgettes with a fig and pomegranate sauce

unnamed (1)

The menu I have created is very simple and easy to make, with moorish flavours blending well together, making you want to eat till you burst with shame. Who would have thought figs and pomegranate  would go so well together. This meal would be good for a dinner party as it’s not too fussy to create, but has some different flavours that everyone should enjoy, it could then be followed by the apple and rhubarb mousse for desert.

fig sauce

Ingredients – chicken  + Veg

  • Organic chicken thigh and leg
  • 2 courgettes (zucchini) sliced
  • two sweet potato’s
  • coconut oil (odourless)


Turn the oven to gas mark 5, put the chicken in a tray with the sliced courgette, coconut oil and sweet potato. I sliced the potatoes in half and put grooves in them to help them cook faster. I then let it all cook for around 15 minutes, before pouring the melted oil over everything and also putting some of the fig sauce (recipe below) over the chicken to give it flavour. After another 15 minutes I repeated putting a little more fig sauce over the chicken.

Ingredients – fig and pomegranate sauce

  • 4 figs roughly chopped
  • roughly 1 large tablespoon of pomegranates
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • a little fresh rosemary chopped finely
  • coconut oil (odourless)
  • rock salt


Heat up the oil in a pan, then add the garlic, onion, salt and rosemary and let fry for a few minutes, then add in the figs pomegranate and a little water and let gently simmer for around 25 minutes, or until it reduces and all the flavours have come through, add more water if needed.
