Sweet Chilli Chicken

Today’s recipe is sort of inspired by a traditional Filipino dish, but done as a stir-fry, and it is dished up with egg-fried rice. I seem to be doing an awful lot of Oriental cooking at the moment, not that I am complaining; Oriental cuisine is one of my favourites. When I was growing up,…

Jacko’s Simple Roast Chicken

And now, we come to one of the most important recipes any home chef should have in his or her repertoire, roast chicken. (Insert Homer Simpson style drool here) I suppose the roast chook has been a major part of my life since I was a little boy. I used to sit in the kitchen…

Easy Chicken and Ham Slab Pie

An old family favourite, straight from my mother’s notebook. Apologies for the long absence. I’ve been unwell, and life has been a bit hectic. But that’s all alright now. Anyway, the other night it was my turn to cook the dinner and I decided to cook one of my favourite quick supper ideas, a chicken…

Baked Tikka Yogurt Chicken

I admit this may not win any prizes for being the most beautiful dish when you pull this out of the oven. I promise it tastes good though. This is a simple version of that Great British favourite, Chicken Tikka, based on a Slimming World recipe. If you prefer your tikka to be in a…

Easy Midweek Paella

A great storecupboard supper that’s ideal for the winter months. Although, having said that, I have made this in the summer and I enjoyed it then too. This is one of those recipes that is easily adaptable to whatever you got in the fridge. I once made this using skinned Cumberland pork sausages, sliced chorizo…

Chilli Chicken Stir-fry

A great tasting stir-fry for two, which I came up with just today. And only two syns a portion on Slimming World. I could quite happily eat stir-fries every day. They are quick and easy, and everyone likes them. As a student I used to make a stir-fry once or twice a week. This one…

Five-Spice Roasted Duck Legs

One of my all time favourites. I have been known to eat this cold for lunch the next day. I love duck, just love it. I had my first try of duck when I was nearly seventeen at my Mum’s 50th birthday in 2004, and I bloody enjoyed it. Crispy skin,  sweet juicy meat in…

Thai Style Chicken Noodle Broth

I love this. Just love it. If there’s any leftover, it’s just as good reheated and served over cooked Jasmine rice as a curry. Happy days! I guess I’ve had a love affair with the food of South Asia since I was in my very early teens. The first time I tried it was when my…

Chilli Jam Chicken

This is a very good recipe, again reposted from the old site, but with a new introduction. Sorry…. I adore chicken, I love that you can roast it, bake it, grill it, hell, what ever method you use, I love it. I think I have some kind of chicken dish for dinner at least four…

Old Fashioned Chicken Soup

After sharing two recipes from my previous site, I thought it high time I did something not seen before. Hope you like it. For the last couple of weeks I’ve been suffering from a cold. Not man flu, just a regular cold. After a few days feeling like shit and not being hungry, my appetite…
