Chicken with sun-dried tomato cream sauce

Sheer exhaustion and post-Easter fatigue overwhelm me today.

In the aftermath of children's laughter and chocolate covered mouths I am left with battlefield remnants of dirty dishes, pots, benches and rubbish. Fuelled by the pressing need to sit with my legs up on my comfortable couch I powered through the cleaning with some much appreciated help from my husband and although there are still a few loads of laundry waiting patiently to be cleaned, I can rest with my feet up in between turns of the drier and swooshes of the washing machine.

As an Easter treat to my family, my husband, brother and I made a video with my father and uncle's heads plastered to Chippendale bodies - I highly recommend having a play with it as it definitely brings raucous thundering laughter and tears from those who watch it.

My most precious moment yesterday was watching the children hunting for Easter eggs; an event I loved so much as a child I still do it to this day with my husband and my dog. The thrill of finding jewelled eggs in everyday places brings so much joy, especially to wide-eyed children.

My fridge overfloweth with desserts and sweets, only a few of whom will be completely consumed as hard as I may try. With all of the cooking and baking of the past few days I felt dinner should be simple and non-fussy.

ease: 5/5.
prep time:
cooking time: 15mins.
total: 17mins.

taste: 4.5/5. My husband was licking his plate and asking if there was anymore - he really loved this dish and even asked me what was in it. I halved everything except the tomatoes to make sauce for 1 person.

would I make it again: Yes - super easy and as hubby said 'it's pretty hot'.
