Cajun chicken, roasted root veg and greens in creme fraiche

It's been quite an odd week - in that victim has done most of the dinners.  This is a very pleasant change, but I'm not used to it!  We had - quorn chili, hot vegetable soup, corned beef hash and beef biryani of earlier post.  Chopped potato, swede and turnip - roasted in olive oil, mustard and thyme for an hour or so.  Chopped leek and softenned in white wine, when nearly soft added chopped green beans, simmered for about 10 minutes, added chopped cavolo nero and simmered until wilted (5 minutes).  Meanwhile, tossed chicken strips in blackenned cajun seasoning and olive oil, then fried them for about 2 minutes on each side - till cooked through.  Took greens off the heat, seasonned and stirred in dollop of creme fraiche.  I loved the veg - victim loved the chicken... not sure it all went completely together, but there you go!
