Fried chicken and garlic toast.

I had a more aesthetic picture of this plate, but somehow, this is my favourite..with a tiny hand pushing a fork into the salad...:)

Some fried chicken, fried potatoes , a salad and some garlic toast.. sometimes the simple flavours are very satisfying ..and as you can see, my daughter loved the garlic toast and the tomatoes in the salad..

This recipe is absolutely simple

Lemon juice - 1 small lemon
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Olive oil - 1 tsp
Sugar - a pinch
Salt - to taste
Crushed black pepper - 1/2 tsp (more or less according to preference)
Crushed garlic - 4 cloves

Whisk all the ingredients, marinate about 500 gms of chicken and 3 or 4 medium potatoes peeled and cut into 1 cm thick discs.

In a wide hot pan, add a bit of olive oil, add the chicken pieces and the potatoes, keep a lid on and shallow fry for about 15 minutes a side.

The garlic toast was made by mincing a garlic, mixing it in some soft salted butter .Then I just coat one side of the bread and toast on a hot plate.
