Roast Chicken & Shredded Sprout Risotto

Brussels Sprouts, nothing divides the family at Christmas quite like them. I’m not sure that any other veg consistently arouses quite a reaction: ‘urghhh’; ‘None for me’ (said with a grimmace); ‘You’ve got to have sprouts at Christmas’. I don’t…

Moving Weekend Halloumi Chicken

In the middle of moving house it suddenly dawned on me that we needed to eat – and I had made no plans for such a thing. Luckily, on opening the fridge, I was reminded that we had some chicken…

Pea Stuffed Chicken with a Parmesan Crust

With the lovely hot weather we’ve been having recently I must confess I haven’t felt much like cooking. I’m sure I’m not alone in that and if, like me, you’re feeling you really should actually cook something but want something summary and don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen this dish may appeal.

Chicken, Chorizo and Watercress Risotto

I was really very pleased with how this turned out when I put it together for dinner last night, using leftover roast chicken and stock from the carcass. Chicken and chorizo is a great combination anyway, and the base rosemary flavour was a very complimentary backdrop. Whilst there wasn’t a great deal of flavour from the watercress it gave a really good texture and colour to the dish.

Chicken and Chorizo Pasta

This pasta dish was just what we needed tonight to fill us up and warm us through.

Autumnal Chicken

I saw the first of the autumn leaves this morning as I walked to work. They were crisp and golden on the ground and there were so many of them, yet when I looked up the trees were still green, just speckled with red where the leaves were turning. We’re on the cusp of the changing seasons, in a hybrid time which finds us enjoying an Indian Summer one day and wrapping ourselves up warm the next. But those fallen leaves signalled the real start of Autumn for me and in celebration of this wonderful time of year I give you this dish, which I put together for dinner tonight. Read post.

Roast Chicken, Cheesy New Potatoes and Broad Beans

I simply adore a good roast chicken dinner and as much as it really is a dish for the colder months I couldn’t possibly go through summer without it. It really needs some adaptation for the hotter days though and…

Summer Roast Poussin

This is a colourful and flavoursome dish, and I expect it would go nicely with a leafy green salad on the side, or perhaps some asparagus. The tomatoes burst during cooking and the juice seeps from the lemons, mixing together…

Classic Combinations

There is a very good reason why some things are partnered together again and again – quite simply, they work. Vodka and tonic, the little black dress and high heels…..chicken and avocado. So little goes into this salad, yet the…
