Day long marinades and lightly smoked wings and ribs

I’ve not had a lot of time for fun cooking recently, but I’ve bene really enjoying simply cooked meat on the BBQ with fresh salad.

Spicy roast chicken

Marinading chicken pieces and baking them in the oven is super simple and delicious. I always seem to have lots of yoghurt marinade left and there’s nothing you can do with it because it’s full of raw chicken.

Honey ginger chicken

To try and break a bt of a food rut we’ve been in were trying out recipes from Perfect Plates in 5 ingrediants, shopping specifically for the ingrediants for chosen dishes, rather than doing a general shop and making stuff.

Spatchcock chicken with a reduced stock

I love a good roast chicken and we very often spatchcock them for speed and even cooking. Excellent, but lacks the gravy which is so easily made from a roasting tin.

Filthy pie and super green salad

I’ve been working up in Scotland quite a lot over the last few months and whilst there came across two excellent local treats: macaroni pies (maracroni cheese, in a pie) and chicken tikka pie (you can figure it out).

Crispy chicken wings

I love chicken wings and until recently I thought deep frying was the only way to get really crispy results. I was wrong. The combination of baking at two temperatures and a little baking powder makes all the difference.

Baked chicken with Spanish flavours

An easy supper to feed lots of folks. I got the idea from this Thomasina Miers’ post. The Belazu tagine paste (bought from Sainsburys) adds a good base and body of flavours.

Miso poached teriyai chicken

After a trip to Wagamammas this weekend I realised I’d not had miso in ages, and my donburi had some excellent sweat sticky chicken. I thought the combo of the two would be rather good.


There are few things as American as hot wings in my eyes, and I bloody love them. They’re great vechicals for hot sauce too, which is handy because eating it with a spoon is generally frowned up.

Baked lemon chicken

I love takeaway Chinese lemon chicken so much. Even when it’s bad, it’s good. I’ve already blogged a fakeaway version already using chicken being quickly deep fried, but this version is very easy on the weight watchers points, and that’s pretty important to me right now.

Rich tarragon roast chicken

I didn’t manage to get any photos of the cooking process here sadly, and only just remembered to get a picture before it all vanished.

Homemade chicken kebab

Kebabs have a bad name in the UK and looking at the pavement detritus on a Sunday morning, I’d agree. However a good kebab is a think of wonder, and one of the things which makes it great is a good bread rather than a poor pita.
