Spicy Chicken Livers on Toast

I was fortunate enough to be treated to a full on Spaghetti Bolognese experience this weekend. Wife went all out and even included chicken livers which really brought a great depth to the sauce. This was doubly brilliant as Wife isn’t usually an offal fan so there’s rarely any in the house. The result was … Continue reading

Vietnamese Chicken Salad

On Sunday we had Roast Chicken and that means leftovers. I imagine there’s going to be a lot of cooked poultry knocking about over the next week or two and I can easily see this recipe working just as well with turkey. It’s not your usual winter dish but it’s a nice change and if anyone … Continue reading

Super Simple Breaded Chicken

I was watching Celebrity Masterchef the other week and the skills test was to prepare breaded chicken in 10 minutes. I thought I’d give it a go and give myself a bit of a test. I didn’t have the recipe but John Torode did a quick run through and it looked easy enough. I was cooking, once … Continue reading

Chicken & Chorizo Paella

We’d just got back from a trip around Spain and although I knew getting the same produce we enjoyed over there would be an impossibility in Yorkshire I was determined to try a paella recipe. I went to my favourite recipe sites and 4Food provided me with what I was looking for. You can see the … Continue reading

Perfect Roast Chicken

Well, perfect is quite a claim and that’s exactly what I thought when I saw this recipe. It’s from Jamie Oliver’s site and we all know how good he is but I had to test out the ‘perfectness’ of it. You can find the original recipe here. I didn’t want a recipe that involved too … Continue reading

Jim’s Chicken with Pak Choi

I have been so busy lately with other things that I haven’t been doing much ‘new’ cooking. Last night was another one of those situations where most of the things I’d bought earlier in the week had been whittled down and I was left with a pack of chicken thighs and some pak choi. It’s … Continue reading

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

Tequila & Lime Chicken

There was some chicken in the fridge and I really didn’t know what to do with it. Wife has said she’d prefer a few dishes with less carbohydrates this week so I started thinking about sauces, back to the fridge. I found some lime, chilli and onion and I knew I had some garlic so … Continue reading

Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

The vast majority of people I know who like Chinese food have sampled many different versions of this classic soup recipe. I searched high and low to find one that sits in between a lot of people’s ideas and contains ingredients that aren’t too difficult to track down. The one I settled on in the … Continue reading

Chicken ‘Tatsuta Age’ Style

A couple of weeks ago I got a great gift. Wife had gone out and purchased for me the Hashi cookbook. It’s got to be the best Japanese cookbook out there. The book starts with a lovely foreword from the author, Reiko Hashimoto (@hashicooking), goes on to discuss some of the more interesting points surrounding … Continue reading
