This post upsets me a little bit. Because although this meal is DELICIOUS [I've made it twice in the past 5 days, and at two portions per pop, this amounts to four servings. In 5 days I've had ten proper meals (lunch & dinner), so this constitutes approximately 40% of my ingoings. And I STILL love it] it isn't exactly aesthetically impressive.
Oh sure, it's cheesy, and tomato-y, rich with roasted garlic and slight nuttiness from the pinenuts in the breadcrumbs, and a little beurre noisette in the sauce. But it has defied my every wish to photograph it in a fancy way.
This may be due to the fact that I have approximately 4 hours in which to shoot in natural sunlight now in Edinburgh, which doesn't coincide brilliantly with when I actually want to eat dinner. However, I challenge anyone to take a bite of this and not immediately proclaim how amazing it is. And with one chicken breast serving two hungry people, it's also good for those of us on a tighter budget. Recipe to follow.
