This dish is a meal in one. Breaded chicken cubes are served with rice, baby sweetcorn and drizzled with a white wine, lemon and butter sauce.
This stuffing can be used in quail, gineau fowl or poussins. My mother used to make this for Easter Sunday lunch.
A typical Cajun recipe, this is full of spicy, complex flavours. With lots of rice and vegetables, it is a great dish to make a small amount of meat go a long way, and offers a healthy balance of protein and carbohydrate.
Risotto is comfort food at its best, and you can ring the changes by adding almost any ingredients you have to hand. This one uses a selection of chicken, pancetta, leeks and courgettes.
You only need a little chicken to make this mouthwatering pilaff, so it is the perfect dish to use up leftovers from a roast.
I took a look around the site for a recipe like this, and not having found one, I decided to have a go creating one. My family really enjoy it. You can adjust the heat to your own preference. You could also omit the chicken for a nutritious vegetarian option. I think it's pretty versatile. It would be delicious served with tortilla chips, guacamole and a fresh green salad. Hope you like it!
Comfort food for those cold days.
I found this recipe whilst looking for inexpensive meals to cook for the family....great hit and costs about a fiver to feed a family of four!!
This is my main favourite dinner.Some times use different ingredient.
I have modified this Chinese recipe that my mother handed down to me. The traditional way of cooking this dish is by using a clay pot. However, a frying pan, together with a saucepan will do just as well. It's simple and delicious to eat.
This dish is not only wholesome, but also extremely easy to make. It uses a few ingredients that you probably have at hand. The flavouring for the dish, comes from the natural juices of the chicken and the instant soup mix. Feel free to substitute in different flavoured soup granules. Serve with steamed vegetables.
I was given this recipe a little while back and it's become a family favourite. The sweet and sticky sauce goes incredibly well with the chicken and rice. Absolutely superb!
This is a delicious use of leftover roast chicken, a treat for a Monday night supper! You may choose to roast your own chicken or buy it from the supermarket. A little grated cheese such as Parmesan or Pecorino Romano before serving is also a nice touch.
This Jollof Rice recipe, also called Benachin, is popular througout West Africa, especially Nigeria and Ghana. It's an easy, family friendly meal made with easy-to-find ingredients.
A wonderfully hearty risotto that is creamier than most. Makes a warming meal. See the footnotes for variations - such as mushroom instead of asparagus. Even my unadventurous and uber-carnivorous brother thinks it's delicious!
This is my version of Pumpkin Risotto. A very creamy risotto with feta melted through it. My whole family love this recipe and I get cheers from my kids when I tell them we are having it for dinner. You can use butternut squash instead of pumpkin, if desired.
Chicken and bacon are a match made in heaven, and the sweet taste of pumpkin really makes this dish come together nicely. The trick with risotto is to have all your ingredients prepared and ready, because you need to stir continuously from start to finish.
This is a traditional South African biryani, which you might like to try as an alternative to what's common here. Don't be daunted by the list of ingredients, because the end result is a richly flavoured centrepiece.
I just invented this chicken and rice dish one night and it has become a favourite!! Chicken, bacon, mushrooms and rice are mixed with a lovely creamy white wine sauce flavoured with mustard. You can leave out the bacon and it'll still be delish!
This is a hearty chicken dish, which is quick and easy to make. Chicken is baked with tomatoes, chilli and rice. It's really that simple. Enjoy during the cold winter months.
