FETA BREADED CHICKEN WITH BACON AND TARROGAN RICE

A dish for comfort food lovers. Crispy breaded chicken with a feta twist, on top of some of the most moreish rice you have ever eaten! There is a lot of flavour in this rice, which is almost like a risotto in texture, but we only used regular Basmati. Once you add the stock and…

PARMESAN CHICKEN BURGERS

Parmesan chicken is a classic that is so simple yet packed with flavour. This Parmesan chicken burger is a game changer. Add that Parmesan chicken to a bun with a little rocket and it makes the tastiest burger going. No added sauce is necessary as you have that wonderful marinara covered in fresh melted mozzarella….

CRISPY BRAN FLAKE CHICKEN GOUJONS

At first this was just an experiment, but it turned into a really great idea! Who would have thought that bran flakes could turn something so crispy and delicious, coating those tender chicken fillets like it was born to do so! Using oat flour as a first coating worked just as well as using regular…

SPICY BUTTER CHICKEN WINGS WITH BALSAMIC GLAZE

Sometimes, getting in a mess with finger food can make it all the more fun! These tasty chicken wings are the spicy, succulent kind that you won’t be able to stop yourself from going back for more. They’re smothered in a beautiful butter and the sweetness from the balsamic is just the icing on the glaze……

BEER CAN CHICKEN WITH MUSTARD AND THYME MASH

Using a beer can to cook a chicken in the oven really does cook it to perfection! Just like you would buy a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket, it cooks it so evenly that the skin is crisp and the meat is tender and juicy. Even better, you can use the beer in the can…

STICKY CHICKEN THIGHS WITH SLOW ROASTED VEGETABLES

After a long weekend off for Easter, I think we’re all feeling a little bit glum and a tiny bit heavier from indulging in drink, food and a lot of chocolate. Some of you may even of have had too much of all three. Not us of course… So now is the perfect time for a meal…

SWEET AND SOUR CRANBERRY AND TURKEY STIR FRY

This was something completely experimental that turned out to be a quick, easy and tasty stir fry. Cranberry and turkey is a classic combo which usually resonates around the Christmas period, but this oriental twist makes it an any day meal to enjoy. Sweet and sour go so well together, it’s the ‘ying and yang’ – a…

SWEET AND SPICY SPATCHCOCK CHICKEN WITH RICE

Last Saturday I was at the supermarket and fancied chicken with rice (as you do) so I decided to buy a whole free range and good quality chicken. I don’t care what anyone says, the free range variety does taste a lot better! I decided to spatchcock it and baste it in a marinade using…

MEDITERRANEAN STEW WITH CHORIZO AND MANCHEGO GNOCCHI

This stew is something different with some great, hearty combinations to warm the soul. You cannot knock the chorizo and manchego gnocchi either! What I love about this stew is the fruitiness from the tomatoes and peppers that go so well with the earthiness of the mushrooms. I love dried porcini mushrooms as they have…

CHICKEN KATSU CURRY WRAPS

Getting together for food with family and friends has to be one of my favourite things to do. Whether its a big occasion, a catch up or just enjoying some time with your loved ones; for me these moments always involve food and drink. A quick pint down the pub, dinner out or most importantly a…

CHICKEN AND TARRAGON RICE BAKE

I love rice based dishes such as risotto or paella. Another favourite of mine is a sweet and creamy rice pudding. This recipe is not a desert but the method reminds me just of what you would do for a rice pudding! A tasty dish you can just throw in the oven and let the rice work its magic. This…

CHILLI AND LIME BUTTERMILK CHICKEN BURGER

Chicken burgers if done right are one of my favorite foods. Not too long ago, I tried my first buttermilk fried chicken and I was on another planet! It was so tender and juicy that I wanted to eat more and more. Apparently, the extra juiciness is a result of the acids in fermented milk (such…
