Chinese Dumplings

It’s Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) today so I thought why not make some Chinese dumplings to go with it? After all there’s nothing more delicious than a dumpling is there? A hot, steamy little parcel filled with delicious and fragrant goodness. I could eat them all day long. Whether fried, steamed or…

Moroccan Roast Chicken and Couscous

Well it’s been a little while since I’ve done a recipe on here, apologies! I blame tonsillitis and generally trying to balance work and home life. What a wonderful summer we just had. Yes the weather wasn’t great, but we had so much fun catching up with friends and family and attending lots of weddings….

Chicken Tostadas

Did somebody say Mexican food? Yes please. Mexican food is so exciting. I love all the colours and textures and how it can bring people together. My husband and I are always eating tacos, fajitas, enchiladas etc but sometimes it can get repetitive. So this time I decided to try something a little different. What…

Chicken Toad in the Hole

Toad in the hole is a British classic. A giant Yorkshire pudding with sausages baked in the middle? Yes please. Although sausages are not great for the waistline. We don’t often eat sausages but I really wanted toad in the hole so I thought, why not put something else in the middle? That’s how chicken…

Ever made Spatchcock Chicken?

A tandoor oven is a traditional clay oven widely used in Indian cooking that cooks food at high temperatures over charcoal. It creates the most…

Chicken and Mushroom Roulade wrapped in Parma Ham

I know what you are thinking, ‘that sounds posh!’ But it really isn’t. It’s a great dish to make on the weekend and impress your friends and it can be prepared in advance. I just made this recipe based on what was in my fridge, and you can do the same. Chicken is so versatile…

Peri Peri Chicken Wings!

Yes that’s right…Peri Peri Chicken Wings! We all know and love the famous flavours of peri peri chicken from Nando’s but have you ever tried to make it at home? It’s delicious and cheaper! Now if the weather was a little bit nicer, I would highly recommend cooking the chickenĀ on the barbecue. But its a…

Friday Night Curry…Butter Chicken

With all this hype about how butter is now good for us, I couldn’t not cook butter chicken and share it with all you lovely people. Now I don’t know if butter is good for us, bad for us, or simply tormenting us but what I do know is that it’s delicious and seems to…

Japanese Chicken Katsu Curry

How many of you love to eat at Wagamama’s? I know I do. Their food has become so popular but one dish that seems to stand out is their Chicken Katsu Curry. It’s crispy breaded chicken served with sticky white rice and an aromatic curry sauce poured over it. Apparently it’s one of their most…
