An easy and tasty meal for the whole family to enjoy, this is sure to become a family favourite. Former Welsh Bake off star Beca Lyne-Pirkis has been busy in the kitchen creating delicious energy saving recipes with Llaeth y Llan products.
Beca uses seasonal products to create tasty dishes in the kitchen without waste. Having a smart meter has allowed Beca to adapt her cooking to reduce her energy consumption in the kitchen. Smart meters make the energy that we use visible, showing us in pounds and pence the cost of our cooking.
To save energy cut the chicken into thin strips to cook quickly, to increase energy efficiency use a think-based frying pan it will heat up quickly and cook the breads in no time.
