We bought back the idea for awesome salt ‘n’ vinegar chicken wings from the USA. We also came back with some delicious huckleberry BBQ sauce. Well, heck, let’s try making some more chicken wings with a tasty, tangy sweet fruit glaze! This was outstandingly good, it’s now a tough choice as to which would be our go-to wing recipe.
For the next in our series of burger recipes, we present the Mad Max Turkey Burger. Infused with the flavours of the unqiue Mad Max seasoning, and packed with a little chorizo, this is a great tasting lean meat burger. And utterly delicious.
Sometimes a Christmas gift can be forgotten. In this case, it was Indian spice and chutney, a gift from my wife … oops. On discovering it the pantry, I made Indian spiced chicken wings a go. It turned out to be a delicious combination, so I cooked it again with chicken thighs.
This could have been called “store cupboard” random curry, as it was concocted from stuff found in the pantry that needed eating. Throw in a bit of this and that, and hey presto, a delicious cheap-eats style chicken and sweet potato curry.
This dish came from exploring the depths of our larder in search of a winter warming meal and combining a bunch of stuff to make something with Moroccan flavours and vaguely themed on a cassoulet. Whilst being accurate, that wouldn’t have made a snappy recipe title.
So we called it Moroccan Cassoulet instead, simple and descriptive. Very flavoursome, and perfect for a cold winter night.
I’ve been working in Switzerland for most of this week, and whilst it’s been a lot of fun and hard work combined, very little time to do anything constructive with a new recipe. So instead, a simple lunch of ultra crispy chicken legs.
I took Dizzy Pig’s latest BBQ rub, Peking, for a spin with some duck breast. Cooked two different ways … the rub by itself, and also as the base for a marinade, both were served with tasty mushroom risotto and honey glazed carrots. The results were both delicious and different.
Take one Sous Vide Supreme. Mix in a Big Green Egg. Sprinkle with other kitchen equipment. Combine with tender chicken breast, vine ripened tomatoes, crisp asparagus tips, fresh basil and papardelle pasta.
The result was a meal truly greater than the sum of its parts. And the ingredient that bought it all together? Pickled celeriac.
Wild garlic is in season at the moment, and I’m fortunate enough to have parents-in-law with this wonderful herb growing in their back garden. My wife picked some and used it to make a tasty, fresh wild garlic leaf pesto sauce.
We had this with some pappardelle pasta, which was served with smoked chicken and asparagus. Utterly delicious. It can also be used for vegetables, or as a dip.
Celebrate this year’s Lunar New Year with homemade Gà Sốt Cam – a simple, tasty low-cost Vietnamese dish of delicious orange chicken with fragrant lemongrass.
After thoroughly enjoying the delicious Jamaican jerk spatchcock chicken, it was clear that spiced rubs can enrich a meal. The “Life of Spice” company offer a range of rubs to enhance flavours. I tried five individual rubs on some chicken legs, all distinct and very tasty.
Spice up your chicken with a homemade Jamaican jerk marinade. Whether it’s cooked al fresco on a Big Green Egg (or similar), or inside using an oven, this will undoubtedly delight and impress your dinner guests.
