This is a cottage pie but using mediterranean flavours and chicken/turkey mince mix for a healthier pie. Paprika, garlic, white wine, tomatoes and herbs make up the base of this dish. Easy to cook, lighter than regular cottage pie. The pie is topped with a creamy parmesan mash, and breadcrumbs just to make this extra … Continue reading Mediterranean ‘Cortijo’ pie
I love satay chicken, this marinade is fool proof and delicious.
My good ol’ faithful spicy chicken and turkey meatballs, cooked in a rich and spicy tomato sauce. I would usually use Turkey mince on its own for this recipe, but could only get hold of this mix, either way is fine. This mince is healthier and more succulent than beef. Ingredients: Balls 500g chicken/turkey mince … Continue reading Spicy Chicken and Turkey Meatballs
Many would turn their noses up to offal, which is such a shame as if cooked well it can be very tasty. I love liver, even as a kid I found it tasty; yes I was a weird child but it was a favourite of mine. I have cooked this for friends who were determined … Continue reading Chicken Liver Risotto
This was a lockdown Tagine, using ingredients I had in the cupboards. It is similar to another recipe I would make using apricots and rosemary. Simple ingredients, easy recipe, amazing taste. Ingredients: 25g salted butter 1 tbsp. olive oil 1 large red apple, cored and cut into wedges (I removed the skin because of #crohns … Continue reading Chicken, Apple & Rosemary Tagine
This is a copy of the chilli chicken from Wasabi, it is my guilty pleasure which I miss eating, so I decided to recreate. This ‘Fakeaway’ for me became better than the original, purely because sometimes they make it far too spicy and I am often sat with a pink face and crying alone in … Continue reading Spicy Chilli Chicken
Here in Spain there are lots of beautiful lemon trees; my aunt grows some huge juicy fruits. It is always a case of “What can we make with them?” I made this curry and slow-cooked it so you can eat the lemons within it. It is a hot curry and very zingy, not for the … Continue reading Lemon Chicken Curry

My version of this popular curry, it is creamy and spicy and the chicken should be cooked to be succulent and juicy. You can adjust the heat to your taste, and as it is a creamy curry you can make this very mild if needed. My recipe is a medium heat. You can make a … Continue reading Chicken Tikka Masala
This was a favourite curry of mine as a kid; not a family recipe, but something my mum would always order from the local Indian takeaway. It was tasty, spicy and lemony. Not many places would have this on the menu, but my mum would always ask if they could make it especially for her. The … Continue reading Chicken Sambar
I like to use chicken and turkey mince for meatballs as they make such juicy balls and are also low in fat. The texture is different to beef and the taste is great. A slightly healthier option. Ingredients: Balls 500g chicken/turkey mince mix, mashed up 1/2 tsp. sea salt 1 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp chilli … Continue reading Chicken and Turkey meatballs in a rich tomato sauce
This curry is that tasty you cannot stop eating it!! I always loved satay as I love peanuts and you can use the basis of this recipe to make chicken satay skewers and cook it on a BBQ!!
I first tried this dish in a restaurant in London called ‘Mestizo’, one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants I have visited in the UK. Traditionally served in a ‘Molcajete’ which is Mexican Spanish and is a stone tool similar to a pestle and mortar. We use to call it the ‘volcano’. When I … Continue reading Salsa Roja Picante en Molcajete
This is a lovely summery dish, tangy from the lemons, and pretty healthy. You can swap the orzo for rice if you can’t find it, or you can just make the bake with vegetables. Ingredients ½ chicken chopped, skin removed 1 onion diced 1 celery diced 2 carrots diced 2 garlic grated 1” ginger skin … Continue reading Chicken, Lemon and Rosemary Orzo bake

I had also been watching Jamie … Continue reading Chicken Salad with Creamy Mango and Macadamia Nut Dressing
I was lucky enough to travel around Thailand a few years ago, and as I LOVE Thai food I decided to visit a cookery school. There they taught us how to make authentic Thai curry pastes and curries and we got to pick out all of our fresh ingredients from the local markets, it was … Continue reading Thai Green Chicken Curry
