This deliciously creamy soup uses a whole chicken, celery, onion, mushrooms and wild rice. The perfect all-in-one soup.

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.

This is the perfect comfort food for any day of the week. Chicken is simmered with rice in a creamy stock. Serve with crusty fresh bread for a substantial lunch or dinner.

This is such an easy chicken, pumpkin and spinach risotto to make. A deliciously different meal that the entire family will love. If you have any leftover chicken in the fridge from a roast, this is a great way to use it.

This recipe makes my favourite chicken dish. Chicken, peppers, mushrooms, olives and rice are simmered together, until cooked. The addition of green olives, adds a special depth of flavour that is hard to explain.

This is my favourite soup in the world! It is extremely healthy and very filling, it freezes well and keeps good for up to 2 full days in the refrigerator. This recipe makes 10 portions but you can improvise the recipe to make the amount you need.

A flavoursome simple recipe which has just the right amount of spicy heat. It keeps well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. My student son wanted to learn to cook as he was tired of microwave meals, and this recipe was easy for him to replicate.
