Smoky pomegranate chicken

So humour me on this one. I know it doesn’t sound like the most natural or classic combination but you’ll be glad you made this! It’s so much more than pomegranate and chicken (figuratively speaking … it actually is pretty much just pomegranate, chicken and onions). It’s got depth of flavour, tastes smoky, a bit fiery,…

Piri piri chicken

This is really delicious and pretty healthy. You can vary the amount of chilli and therefore temper the piri piri-ness, but it’s great for a weeknight meal to blow the cobwebs away! The initial idea is from Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals – and took me about 45 mins to cook even when leaving out some…

Peppered chicken and spinach curry

This is a great curry to have when it’s cold and blustery outside. It’s definitely got warmth from the spices (mainly pepper, as you may have guessed!) but it’s also really tasty and easy to make in bulk for multiple meals. The recipe below fed two of us twice. The recipe I used came from…

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…

Amazingly delicious chicken tagine

This is a recipe that will take a bit of time and attention (unfortunately you can’t leave it cooking unattended all afternoon), but it’s one of the tastiest meals I’ve had this year, and you can easily make multiple portions. I was lucky enough to have homemade chicken stock to hand, which may have made…
