Maple chicken thighs
How are we on this wet and windy morning? Is it wet and windy where you are? The weather has been interesting lately with some very hot and humid days followed by the loudest thunder and lightening i have ever heard. The lightening was so bad that it broke a cupboard in our back garden that was ready for the skip. With one bolt it became a flat pack. Oh well, easier to transport. On to the food. Maple chicken thighs are a little different to the food I usually eat and with them being so delicious and sweet, it’s a hit with the kids too. To kind of balance out the sweetness, i serve mine with some kale, lightly cooked in lemon and garlic. On occasion, i also serve it with corn on the cob because i just love sweetcorn.
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.
Chicken shawarma Salad
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).
Chicken and chickpea curry
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.
Peri Peri Chicken
It took me a while of staring into space to decide what to call this and then i just went with the obvious.. Initially i was like hmmm,shall i call it Peri Peri chicken without ready made sauces, Peri Peri tray bake or Lemon, garlic and red pepper tray bake.
