An easy soy, honey and garlic marinade makes for deliciously sticky chicken wings.
Tostadas comes from the Spanish word for toasted – in Mexico it refers to flat, crisply toasted corn tortillas, topped with all sorts of savoury things. Chicken with beans and salad is a favourite. A base layer of a thick mixture – often refried beans, but here a spicy pepper and tomato mixture – keeps everything together.
This stylish-looking main course is surprisingly easy to make. The chicken breasts can be prepared in advance, ready for cooking, and kept, covered, in the fridge. Tagliatelle tossed with a little grated lemon zest would be a good accompaniment, plus ciabatta with olives or sun-dried tomatoes.
There's absolutely no added fat in this Chinese-inspired appetiser. Chicken is poached in a ginger-flavoured stock, shredded and tossed with a soy-vinegar dressing and vegetables, then rolled in lettuce leaves.
For a delicious starter, stuff fresh mushrooms with a savoury mixture of chicken sausage, vegetables and a sprinkling of cheese. They're surprisingly low in fat because they are not made with pork sausage meat but they still taste great.
This is not a proper carbonara but its so tasty!!!

'Cordon Bleu' originally referred to an award for culinary excellence given to female cooks! The term can now apply to any superior cook (yes, blokes too), and also to this dish. This yummy version adds paprika and a creamy white wine sauce worthy of its own blue ribbon.
My mum always made pizza with chorizo growing up and I loved it. I have redone it and added more protein - chicken! I love homemade pizza.

This is an authentic recipe for green enchiladas that I learnt from an amazing home cook in Puebla, Mexico. I've been tweaking and perfecting it for over 15 years. To save time, I use ready-cooked chicken from the supermarket, but you can always use leftovers from a Sunday roast! Be conservative with the cream and the cheese.
Chicken breast fillets baked in tidy little parcels, flavoured with olives, raisins and tomato puree - a quick and tasty dinner that shines with effortless Mediterranean flavours.
A friend of mine made these spring rolls so I wanted to try making my own - they're not the deep-fried spring rolls you get from your local Chinese but a healthier version. It took a lot more work than I thought to conquer rolling the spring roll wrappers but it was worth it and we had good fun making them! They taste delicious dipped in sweet Thai chilli sauce and the raw veg give them a beautiful crunch.
A delicious sweet and spicy, authentic chicken and mushroom curry that's easy to make. Serve with basmati rice.
As far as herbs go, I think fresh thyme works best with chicken. I sometimes add four or five bulbs of green garlic (young garlic that looks like baby leeks) when it's in season and if I find it at the farmers' market.
