Passionfruit jelly, a super easy dessert and perfect for summer! For anyone who lives somewhere where it is not summer you can save it for when the time comes. This dish isn’t in any way a traditional Thai dish, but I wish I had tried it when I was growing up! Happy cooking and enjoy the video.
Chicken with Diane sauce
Chicken with Diane sauce. This recipe, cooked with love, delivers perfectly tender chicken breasts with a delicious sauce that you will remember for weeks.

Salt & Pepper
15 g butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 cup chicken stock
