In a non-stick frying pan, sauté the mushrooms, green pepper and onion in oil for 4-5 minutes or until tender.

Chicken (we used 2 breasts,)

10 steps to success:
Get your ingredients out and ready to go
Get your ingredients ready for chopping
Chop the peppers, onion and mushrooms - Chef's notes: We cut the peppers so they’re long. We peeled the onion, then cut it in half, then along the longest side. We peeled the mushrooms (you don’t have to do this) then cut from top to bottom.
Chop the chicken - Chef's notes: Remember to wash your hands!
Put a few sprays of fry-lite (or up to a tablespoon of oil) in your pan and fry the onion until it starts to brown. Watch those onions sizzle!
Add in the peppers and fry until they start to brown.
Make space for the chicken and add it in
Add in the chicken
Mix together and cook for 5 minutes
Get the largest piece of chicken and cut it to see if it’s cooked white all the way through
It’s done! Time to serve.
How to Serve:
Put a dollop of the food into your wrap. Fold it up from the bottom
Then the left side
Then the right side
Wrap challenge. Can you make it stand up?!
freshly ground black pepper
600 g baking potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.
Wash 4 large sweet potatoes under cold running water, scrubbing well with a scrubber to get rid of any dirt (no need to peel them)
Cut each sweet potato in fries, by cutting the sweet potato in half and then into smaller fries
Add to a large mixing bowl, then sprinkle over a tiny pinch of sea salt and black pepper, and ½ a teaspoon of sweet smoked paprika
Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then toss everything together to coat
Spread out into a single layer in a large baking tray, then bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through
Leave to sit for a couple of minutes, to make it easier to remove them, then use a fish slice to transfer them to a serving dish
500grams of strong white bread flour
2 teaspoons of salt
7 grams of yeast
300mls of lukewarm water (200 cold, 100 of boiling water)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Measure out 500grams of strong white bread flour into a large mixing bowl
Add 2 teaspoons of salt and mix together
Add your 7 grams of yeast and stir until mixed together
Create a well in the middle of your mixture and add in your water and olive oil
Mix all of this together, using one hand to fold the mixture together gently in the bowl (if you have a mixer at home you can use this now for 10mins on a low setting).
Move the mixture onto your work surface and keep needing until you create a slightly sticky dough - Watch the video to see how John does this.
Create the shape you want with the dough
You now need to prove the bread by placing it in the mixing bowl, putting a tea towel over it and leaving it for an hour.
After an hour your dough will have grown a lot larger
Need the bread for a couple of minutes to push the air out
Shape the dough into its final shape
Put your parchment paper on the oven tray
Place your dough on the parchment paper
Place the tea towel over the tray and leave for another hour
After an hour, remove the tea towel and add any design you wish such as a few cuts on the top as John demonstrated
Preheat your oven at 200 degrees
Place your oven tray in the oven for half an hour
After 30minutes take your bread out the oven and get stuck in!
