A quick and easy recipe for teriyaki-glazed oven-cooked chicken with a vibrant vegetable noodle salad, full of flavour.



  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Chop the red bell pepper in small dices, approximately 1/2 cm.
  2. In a small frying pan, heat a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Add the pepper and season with a pinch of salt. Cook for approximately 5 minutes until red bell pepper has softened and developed some colour.
  3. Transfer the red pepper to a small plate and leave to cool completely.
  4. Once cooled completely, transfer the red pepper to a food processor or mini chopper and add the garlic clove, dried rosemary, dried oregano, ground cumin and fresh lemon juice and blitz until smooth. You could also do this with a stick blender.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste. This dip is delicious on top of some grilled baguette or ciabatta slices!
