It's called Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals and it's premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, May 1, 1:00pm ET — and in honor of that, we've got a super delicious, super special recipe from Jamie!
Look us in the eye and tell us you don't want to know how to make Piri Piri Chicken!
Check out the recipe after the jump — if your tongue wants to go on an adventure!!
It's been a while since we've had some new TV goodness from Jamie Oliver, but that's all about to end!
Jamie is premiering Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals on BBC America's daytime lineup!
Practice what you preach, Jamie, and don't get pissy when someone calls you out on it!
Jamie Oliver was in Australia, and during an interview, the interviewer happened to ask him about his own weight — asking if he was heavier than when last Down Under.
Here's how Jamie responded:
"I don't know. I am very healthy. I think the last time I had a filling in my teeth, which was quite recently, I was in good nick. But really, I am not really sure. Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing, you bitch."
Here's his excuse:
"I went out last night and had a few drinks after a very long day, (and) my brain did not quite understand that question. I do my best . . . working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh, I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30."
We love that you're all for healthiness, Jamie, but this almost made us turn on a dime about how we feel towards you. Yes, you should practice what you preach, and no, you shouldn't get all snippy when someone calls you out on it.
Hell, you've made a fortune off calling OTHERS on it.

Who can argue with the question, "Who would want to eat an ammonia-filled burger?"
But that doesn't stop people who don't know that McDonald's uses an ammonina-pink slime in their burgers!
So Jamie Oliver decided to get it stopped — and he has won.
Ammonium hydroxide was being used by McDonald's to convert fatty beef offcuts into a beef filler for its burgers in the USA.
Hilariously, though, McDonald's swears it wasn't because of Oliver:
'The decision to remove BPI products from the McDonald's system was not related to any particular event but rather to support our effort to align our global beef raw material standards. McDonald's complies with all government requirements and food safety regulations. Furthermore, we have our own food safety measures and standards in place throughout the entire supply chain to ensure that we serve safe, high quality food to every customer, every time they visit our restaurants.'
Anyway, we're glad to hear that this is over. The problems still stands, though, that fast food is unhealthy — and people abuse it that goes way beyond consuming in moderation!
We should tackle that, next!
Good job, Jamie!

Jamie Oliver was on Jimmy Kimmel's show, and talked about a wide range of subjects (involving food) including how congress wants to call pizza a vegetable, and how McDonald's can "fuck off" for unfriending him on Facebook!
But he does get a little serious when he talk about how we as a nation are on the right path, just not a fast enough path.
Also, it's great to hear his book is the 2nd best selling book in the UK ever… right behind Harry Potter, of course!
Check out the clips!
Out with the old, in with the new!
Not a bad way for David to bring home some extra bacon to the Beckham's $165 million empire.
Joining Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds, Beckham will be an ambassador for Sainsbury's Active Kids campaign and promote its sponsorship of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
As a father of four children, the L.A. Galaxy soccer player was impressed by the company's commitment to kid's health, explaining:
Ugh! This behavior needs to stop NOW!
The British chef and star of Food Revolution shared the unfortunate news on Twitter that his Italian restaurant in Birmingham has been damaged by the angry citizens in revolt, tweeting:
"Sadly my restaurant in Birmingham got smashed up windows all gone whole area closed, cant open, staff and customers all safe."
At least nobody got hurt, but it's sad to see a city get destroyed like this! Jamie certainly isn't happy with his fellow Brit's behavior, writing:
"So sad to see whats happening in UK with these Riots!all gone mad !time to get our country back now we need 2 come down hard on these idiots."
Luckily, the damage must not have been too severe because his most recent tweet suggests they've already made the necessary repairs, posting:
"Birmingham restaurant got fixed up quick, sad for many of the other shop owners especially the small family run businesses in this climatex"
We're happy to hear Jamie's restaurant is okay because we just can't understand how destroying private businesses will help bring about social justice.
