Moroccan Bean & Chicken Caserole

Moroccan Bean & Chicken Caserole

This is a great recipe for using up any left over tinned beans. It can also be doubled, making it great for batch cooking as you can freeze it. If I know I have got a busy day the following day, I like to make…

Cardamom Spiced Roast Chicken, Sweet Potato, Pear, Spinach & Walnuts

Cardamom Spiced Roast Chicken, Sweet Potato, Pear, Spinach & Walnuts

I took inspiration for this recipe from one I found on The Happy Foodie. It sounded really tasty but I personally needed more veg and carbohydrates to make it a complete meal. I decided to add sweet potatoes and spinach, which both compliment the ingredients…

Roast Chicken & Vegetable Pasta

Roast Chicken & Vegetable Pasta

I do enjoy a big bowl of roasted vegetables, especially when the edges have started to caramelise and go crispy. It just intensifies the flavour and the varying textures keep it interesting. This recipe works with most vegetables and most protein sources. It is incredibly…

Chicken & Chorizo Gumbo

Chicken & Chorizo Gumbo

The dish gumbo originates from Louisiana, USA. It is similar to jambalaya in that it has two typical versions, the creole and the Cajun varieties. Cajun is traditionally meat based, whereas creole is seafood. Jambalaya is a rice based dish, while gumbo is more of…

Curried Broad Bean, Cabbage & Courgette

Curried Broad Bean, Cabbage & Courgette

This dish is kind of a cross between a stir-fry and a curry. It is fairly spicy, so adjust the seasoning if you prefer. Its really simple to make. If you prefer, you can make without the chicken to keep it vegetarian. Most curry dishes…

Lemon Chicken

Lemon Chicken

About 7 years ago now, when I was still very new to cooking from scratch, I found and followed a recipe for lemon chicken. It was something Neil used to make when he lived on his own, but from using a sauce from a jar,…

Jamaican Chicken & Mango Curry

Jamaican Chicken & Mango Curry

I’m becoming obsessed with cooking chicken and mango together. The enzymes found in mango help to break down proteins and so result in the chicken being wonderfully tender and moist. Its surprising how many different meals I can sneak it in to. When making this,…

Chicken Creole

Chicken Creole

This is the first recipe I attempted from scratch. Back in 2011 I was inspired to start being more creative in the kitchen by my then tandem partner or ‘pilot’ Fiona Duncan. I didn’t really know where to start so I ordered a couple of…

Chicken, Lentil & Mango Curry

Chicken, Lentil & Mango Curry

This is a recipe I’ve been making for several years now. For the first little while I played around with it a lot to get it perfect, but now its pretty much set in stone. Its a really good balance of spicy and sweet. Its…

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Chicken, Parsnip & Carrot Curry

Due to parsnips natural sweetness, I think it works really well in a curry. The contrast of sweet and spicy compliment each other really well and, for this recipe anyway, the different textures of crunchy carrot with softer parsnip add a slightly more interesting dimension to…

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

Chicken & Butternut Squash Tagine

For this recipe I cheat a little and use a pre-made Moroccan Harissa spice mix. It’s basically a mixture of ground cumin, coriander, chilli powder and cinnamon, so if you can’t get hold of the mix then just use a combination of these. It will…

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma

As I mentioned in my last recipe, Tesco were selling pears cheap so I bought a bag. As I don’t particularly enjoy eating them whole, I’ve been looking for ideas to include them in savoury recipes instead. Fruit in savoury dishes is something people either…
