St. Tropez Chicken and Nigella Lawson Game Changer # 44

By Veronica46
St. Tropez Chicken and Nigella Lawson game Changer # 44 Nigella Lawson’s given name was originally thought up by her grandmother.  It is like the female version of her dads name. She is game changer number 44. Nigella was born in London England and is the daughter of Nigel Lawson , a former Chancellor for Margaret Thatcher. Her mother is was Vanessa Salmon the heiress to the J. Lyons & Co. fortune. Nigella grew up mostly in Kensington and Chelsea where she lived a luxurious life-style. Her folks divorced in 1980 and that is the time when Nigella didn’t get along well with her father. She didn’t get along well with her mother until she was an adult and this contributed to her unhappy childhood. Her mother died of liver cancer when Lawson was only 25. Also tragically her sister Thomasina died of breast cancer in 1993 .  Nigella moved around a lot from age 9 to 18 she went to nine different schools.  She worked for many department stores and graduated from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford with a degree in mediaeval and modern languages. Lawson soon started work as a book reviewer and restaurant critic.  Later she worked for the Sunday Times. In 1998 She wrote her first cook book How to Eat. In 1999 she started hosting her cooking series Nigella Bites. It was accompanied by another best selling cookbook of the same name She followed it in 2000 with another cookbook, How to be a Domestic Goddess In 2003 She stared in Nigella Feasts. In 2007 she hosted  Nigella Express for Food Network and Nigella’s Christmas for the BBC. They both were followed by cookbooks of the same name. Nigella and her husband Charles Saatchi live in Chelsea. I decided to make her St. Tropez Chicken. It gets its name from the bronze like color the skin takes on when cooked.  It makes a ton and would be wonderful for any get together you have planned.
