Jim’s Honey, Mustard & Thyme Chicken

This all began with a rather poor shopping trip earlier in the week, didn’t pick up half the things I was going to need so I either had to go back to the shops or be a bit creative. I went for the latter. Ingredients: 400g boneless chicken thigh 3 tbsp wholegrain mustard 2 tbsp … Continue reading

Chilli & Coriander Beef Burgers

As the barbecue season marches on with great gusto I thought I’d have a go at making my own burgers.
