Chicken in a Creamy White Wine Sauce

If you saw the last post you’ll know that I’ve been thinking about simple, tasty food recently that can be cooked without a lot of bother. Last time I went for a South East Asian inspired sauce, this time I’m going much more Mediterranean. Inspiration was born out of the ingredients in the fridge, I just … Continue reading

Chilli Soy Chicken

It’s been an absolute age since I’ve posted on here and I’m not going to bore you with the reasons why, there are reasons though. Anyway, so I’ve been thinking about simple, tasty food recently that can be cooked without a lot of bother. As you probably know by now I love South East Asian … Continue reading

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

Chorizo, Chilli & Chickpea Casserole

I hope everyone is currently enjoying the festive period. Things have been a bit hectic at Recipe Tests Towers over the past week but here’s a lovely warming stew that you can have rustled up in no time – well, about half an hour. I took the recipe from a book I was given for … 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

The recipe I found has been adapted from the Weight Watchers Zero Point Vegetable Soup and you can find the one I used here on the FatSecret website. Ingredients: … Continue reading

Broccoli Soup

Sometimes you just want something very quick, simple and healthy – look no further. This dish was seen on tele due to one of Nick Nairn’s outings on Ready, Steady, Cook. The recipe is on the BBC Food website and you can find it here. Before we go on, a little word about broccoli. This … Continue reading

Spicy Parsnip Soup

Time for another soup recipe, this one I took straight off Jamie Oliver’s website and it’s for Spicy Parsnip. With the winter months coming in I though a good root vegetable base would be the way forward, you can find the original recipe here. Ingredients: Olive oil Knob of butter 1 large onion, peeled and … 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

Jim’s Baked Trout Fillet (en Papillote)

A couple of weeks ago I did a quick experiment. I had managed to get hold of 6 small trout fillets and I wanted to check out the ‘en papillote’ style of cooking which basically means to oven bake wrapped up in a paper parcel. I tried a number of different ingredients and this was … Continue reading
