Valentines Meal with Aldi

I have recently been asked by the lovely people at Aldi to create a recipe using Aldi only items for Valentines day and so I headed off to my local Aldi to see what I could buy and come up with a yummy meal that would be perfect for Valentines at home this year. 

I chose to do a Garlic and herb chicken with potato dauphinoise and some yummy and healthy vegetables. All items were purchased from Aldi including the garlic, tarragon, potatoes , double cream and cheese which I forgot to photograph (oops).





You will need for the chicken: 

2 skinned chicken breasts
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp tarragon
Salt & pepper

For the Potato Dauphinoise:
500g potatoes (thinly sliced)
250ml double cream

100g grated chedder cheese


Method:
1. Cut up your choice of vegetables and pop them into a steamer for 25 mins
2. Slice up the potatoes and parboil for 15 minutes

3. while the potatoes are parboiling: 
- Preheat oven to 190°C
- Crush the garlic and then add tarragon and salt and pepper 
-Rub all ingredients onto the chicken
 - Pop in the oven for 25-30 minutes 

4.. Mix cheese and cream together
5. layer the potatoes into an oven proof dish adding the cream/cheese mixture between each layer. Bake for 25 mins

6. Serve and enjoy.


I also chose to make a vegetable soup for starter: 

All you need is the Vegetable soup mix from Aldi, water and a vegetable stock cube. 



The dessert was also easy to do too all that was needed was:

A pack of 4 apples
Crumble mix
Optional: Sugar/Sweetener to taste. 

Method: 
1. Peel and slice the apples 
2. Put into a oven proof dish top with the crumble mix and sweetener/sugar
3. Pop in the oven for 25 minuites a 190°C.



Will you be having a Valentines meal at home this year?
