I have been making this Molasses chicken for a while now. It is so yummy with some fragrant rice or bulgar salad. The chicken is dark, subtly spiced and delicious.
I know i said i would have this chicken shawarma salad recipe up over the weekend, so i apologise that it is a little late. I promise that it is worth the wait. It is absolutely delicious. This may not be the most authentic shawarma recipe because it isn’t cooked on a rotisserie but i think it works well as a salad. The rotisserie method isn’t alway accessible. I have used all the flavours of a shawarma and baked it in the oven followed by a short blast under the grill. This recipe is for a salad, although of course you could eat it as a sandwich or naanwich ;). If i was making a lamb version, i would use a griddle instead. I have made this with both chicken breast and thighs and would recommend you use thighs but if you are watching what you eat, then breast would be better and it also cooks quicker (Halve the time and keep an eye on it as it can dry out).
So, this chicken and chickpea curry recipe is one i love. It is my mum’s recipe. I also make this recipe with daal and that is also so delicious. I love daal to be honest. I am making tadka daal today and i’m already dreaming about it.
I was never a soup person but all that changed about three years ago. My husband loves soup and we now go through months of having soup every afternoon. Of all the soups i make, this ranks second for him. His first love is this french onion soup. For me, this chicken and sweetcorn soup ranks first. I add a lot of chillies in this soup because that is how i love it. Please feel to reduce the chillies though!
Mexican chicken salad makes me think of summer and there isn’t long to go before we get there. To be honest, I love having this salad any time of the year. Who said it has be seasonal?
