Chilli bowl

The recipe I found to make this originally has got lots of comments about how this is better than an average chilli, and I certainly agree. There was a great depth of flavour and also just the right amount of heat to make you take notice but not so much that you need a pint of…

Spicy turkey chilli con carne

You need a few different things for this chilli but they’re not hard to get and that’s what puts this chilli above the other, somewhat bland, bolognese style chilli’s I’ve made before. Once you add the spices in, the taste and texture completely change and the whole thing takes on a new flavour. Ingredients for…

Sticky Cajun Chicken

Let me just say, the meal is as great as this photo is out of focus! It’s super healthy in terms of ingredients and cooking methods – hardly any oil or fats are used in cooking and there’s not really any carb elements either. When I made this I made enough for lunch the next…

Curry with kachumber salad

This is a lovely curry that is healthy, cheap to buy for, relatively quick to prepare, and can be very easily scaled up or down depending on how many people/meals you’re cooking for. The recipe also includes a fresh kachumber salad on the side. Including the salad is a great way of helping cut down…

Pyrenees chicken

This is a great dish if you’ve got lots of people to feed and also it’s super versatile and will go with lots of different sides. The recipe I followed was from Movida which is a Spanish food cookbook, which I confess I don’t use as often as I should due to the amount of preparation usually…

Poulterer’s pie

I think this is kind of the chicken equivalent to shepherd’s pie, hence the name (a poulterer being someone who keeps poultry). Although this meal is a bit of effort, it will easily serve two for two nights. It did seem like a bit of a random combination of vegetables, but infact, it all came…

Rustic arrabbiata chicken

This is another great 2 night recipe. Initially I was dissappointed with the recipe as it looked nothing like the recipe photo had promised (but then, I did diverge from the recipe quite a bit) until I tried the leftovers with spaghetti – and it went marvellously. It’s like the sauce that so many of…
