KNOCKING AT THE DOOR
-ALL: Hello, Katie.
Come in, quickly! Come on!
Now, do you want to know what delicious recipe
we're going to cook today?
Today's mouth-watering recipe is going to be...
Now, doesn't that look tasty?
There's one thing we need to do before we start.
Do you know what it is?
ALL: Wash our hands.
# Roll up your sleeves Give your hands a wash
# With slippy, dippy soap Splish, splash, splosh
-# Have you done your hands?
-Washed and dried?
-# Sleeves rolled up?
# What can you do? I can cook! #
Let's get cooking!
To make our cheesy chicken, we need to start with two cherry tomatoes.
-What do you think they look like?
-Eyes? Like this?
Hello! My name is Mr Tomato!
We need to chop up these tomatoes with a clean pair of scissors.
When using scissors, everybody knows,
it's always best to point them at your...
At your toes, that's right.
We'll make our tomatoes explode!
I'll start with small little snips
Then we'll do bigger ones.
-James, how are you doing with your snipping?
Can you pretend to do snipping with your fingers like this?
Snip, snip, snip, snip!
Ellie, that's brilliant, well done. That's fantastic.
I've chopped mine into loads of pieces!
We need to add a pinch of pepper, to add flavour to our cheesy chicken.
Can you get your pinchy fingers out?
Pinch, pinch, pinch!
We're going to take a small pinch of our pepper.
Sprinkle it in.
Take a look at this.
It's a herb called basil.
And it's going to add yummy flavour to our cheesy chicken.
Smell the leaves on your table everyone. What does it smell like?
-It doesn't smell like any ordinary leaves.
-Does it smell nice?
It tastes even better when you put it in your food.
Take your leaves from your bowl.
Can you guess what we're going to do with them?
That's right, tear them up!
A bit like tearing paper.
And then sprinkle them into your bowl with your tomatoes as well.
Can you pretend to tear at home? Like this!
Tear, tear, tear! Can you do that?
It's raining leaves in your bowl, Pierce.
Can everyone make it rain leaves?
Well done, James.
What do you think we're going to need next?
Let's put you to the test.
Today's ingredient for you to guess.
What do you think it's going to be?
Let me give you some clues.
The missing ingredient comes in lots of different colours.
So, could it be...tea-towels?
We can't eat tea-towels.
But they will be useful when we do the drying up!
The missing ingredient is also crunchy.
So could it be...
I've already had my cereal, let's move on!
The missing ingredient also has lots of seeds hiding inside of it.
So, could it be...
It's an orange pepper! Did you guess?
We're going to need an orange pepper in our cheesy chicken.
Let's find out how peppers grow in the I Can Cook garden. Come on.
# I can cook! #
Welcome to the I Can Cook garden.
Where in the garden do you think we'll find peppers?
Do you think they'll be growing underground? Or on a bush?
Or in the greenhouse?
ALL: In the greenhouse.
They will be in the greenhouse.
Do you want to have a look? Let's go.
Can everyone see my peppers growing?
When do you think they'll be ready to pick?
When they're really big.
About that big. Can we make that size with our hands?
We can eat peppers when they're the colours of traffic lights.
What colours are those?
Green, orange and red.
Red, orange and green.
They're the sweetest when they're red, and when they're orange.
Shall we pick some peppers?
Give it a good tug, a good old tug. That's it.
Twist it around. that one came off easily!
Let's get back to the kitchen.
# I can cook! #
We've washed our hands and our peppers,
and we're ready to carry on cooking. Are you guys ready?
We've got our orange pepper, and we're going to pop it.
We need to put our hands around the pepper,
and use our thumbs to pop it. Push the green part down, pop!
Push really hard, that's it!
And then pull this part out. Oh!
We're going to put our thumbs in the pepper and rip it in two pieces.
Let's make a big rip sound when we do it.
THEY ALL LAUGH
And now we need to rip out all of the white fleshy bits in our pepper.
Can you rip the fleshy bits out like that?
Well done, Ellie, that's really good.
Now we're going to tap the pepper to get all the seeds out.
What do the seeds make you think of?
-Do you think they look like rain?
We've got two pieces of pepper.
Don't you think they look like shells?
-A bit like boats.
Do they look like boats?
Mine's like a speedboat if you don't rip it.
Now we're going to take a baking tray
with some baking paper on top of it.
I've already oiled yours for you.
We need to take one of our pepper shells
and put it on top of the tray.
Then we're going to fill up our pepper,
and start with roast chicken I cooked earlier.
We're going to rip it into small pieces.
Make sure you get it into all the holes at the back.
Do you like stuffing the pepper, James?
-It's fun, I love stuffing peppers.
Don't fill up your peppers, there's more ingredients to come!
Chocolate! We're not going to put chocolate in our cheesy chicken!
-Cheesy chocolate chicken!
-Cheesy chocolate chicken?
Cheesy chocolate chicken...marmalade.
Next, we're going to add the rest of the cherry tomato mixture
into our stuffed pepper.
Take as much as you want. There you go, spoon it on.
You squish it in!
-Who's looking forward to eating their cheesy chicken?
I think this is gonna be really tasty.
We're going to take a special kind of cheese called mozzarella.
-It's quite soft and squishy, what do you think it looks like?
-Why does it look like ice cream?
-Sometimes ice cream is white.
-We have to squish it.
Let's get squashing! Squash it up.
Till it goes all squishy.
We're going to add the mozzarella into our stuffed pepper.
Get your fingers really sticky,
and stuff it on top.
Can you push it into the holes in your pepper? Like this.
Let's see everyone's fingers, who has sticky fingers?
-I'll give mine a wipe.
Now we're going to take a pinch of pepper,
so we need our pinchy fingers!
Can you make it quack like a duck?
ALL: Quack, quack, quack!
Pepper will add flavour to our cheesy chicken.
Take a pinch and sprinkle it on top.
Then we'll add the last bit of our cheesy chicken, my favourite part.
-Do you know what it is?
Some grated cheese!
Sprinkle on as much as you want.
Pierce, how much cheese have you put on?
Why so much cheese?
Because I really, really, really love cheese!
Now it's time to put our cheesy chicken in the oven for 20 minutes.
Remember, everyone - with ovens, beware, because it's hot in there!
Get an adult to help you. Come on, everyone, bring your cheesy chicken.
Thank you. That looks fantastic.
# I can cook! #
While our cheesy chickens are cooking, it's time to...
ALL: Tidy up!

Now, time to remember what we've made today.
# Chop, chop, chop tomatoes Chop, chop, chop

# I can cook! #
Our cheesy chickens have cooked!
Whilst they cool down...
ALL: Let's lay the table!
Look! The cheesy chicken's cooled down and is ready to eat!
The waiting is over, enough of this talk,
let's taste what we've cooked with a knife and a fork!
-What do you think of yours, Chloe?
-I like it.
-What about yours, Ellie?
Our cheesy chicken is scrumptious!
We did it!
ALL: We can cook!
That's it for now, I can't wait to see you all again soon.
But just remember, you can cook, too!
