Tomato and Red Pepper Marinated Chicken

By MasterChef: The Professionals 2013 winner Steven Edwards

“I applaud Horder Healthcares’ philosophy of creating fresh food and appealing dishes to improve the wellbeing of patients and speed up their recovery. To reflect this, my signature dish combines lean tender chicken with a tasty marinade accompanied with the different textures of both the puree and crunchy chickpeas.

I trust you’ll enjoy it”
