It’s two days since she announced the break-up of her 10-year marriage, but Gwyneth Paltrow was back on her lifestyle website this morning to show how to joint a chicken and get “three quick and healthy meals”.
The recipes include Grilled Jerk Breasts with Slaw and Chicken + Beet Green Pilaf, "We slather these breasts with a spicy pimenton rub before grilling and serving with our slaw," she enthuses.
The actress used her Goop website to announce her marriage split this week. And today she again made a reference to her marital situation when she thanked her subscribers for their support in recent days with a brief postscript saying: “P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many.”

"Elegantly minimal in black or off-white (and nicely affordable, too), these tables can stand alone as a side table, in a group as a coffee table, on its side over the couch, or nested with its smaller version as a set of occasional tables," she says.
Fellow acress Cameron Diaz has also addressed the couple's impending divorce: "because everybody is interested and they are giving them the truth".
She added: "They're being very honest about their relationship, which is that they are really great friends, they're amazing parents and they're just consciously deciding that a part of their life is not going to be spent the way it's been for the last 11 years, which I think is ..."
