I was in London, for my alone vacation there and I was there to explore the city, I went on the streets of London with a map in my hand and searching the best restaurants of the city.

The first restaurant I explore was restaurant of a famous chef and the name of that restaurant was Jamie Oliver’s Diner Piccadilly and I was sitting the restaurant holding the menu card of the restaurant. I don’t know what to eat.

I asked a person who was sitting there about what to eat, he suggested me to eat the Blackened chicken with Quinoa Salad, I ordered that salad and it was so tasty with multiple flavours and here is the twist, when I was paying the bill in the billing card and I saw a picture of Jamie Oliver. I was shocked at that moment because the person whom I asked what to eat was the same person isn’t it crazy.

I went back to the table but he left and I asked the waiter about his recipe book and from that recipe book, I got to know about the recipe of this dish which I will share today with my favourite people.

Let’s see the journey of Blackened Chicken with Quinoa Salad Recipe.
