Showcasing an utterly beautiful golden enoki mushroom. Together with chicken, red chilli and pak choi I made a stir fry and added fresh papaya slices at the end - the smooth, cooling fruit added a fresh honey-sweetness that complimented the chilli. The dish is lightening quick to make but the combination of textures and flavours makes it feel a lot more complex. This stir fry is crunchy, spicy, nutty (from the enoki) and sweet.

A ballotine is traditionally a deboned leg of chicken or duck, stuffed, tied and rolled and steamed, poached or baked. Nowadays chicken breast and various cuts of red meat are also used to make a ballotine - really a fancy way of saying a stuffed and rolled piece of meat. I stuffed chicken breasts with Mediterranean Delicacies basil pesto and topped with their Olive Tapenade and bread crumbs.

Sweet Chilli Chicken Pitas with Beetroot Slaw

By |2017-05-08T12:46:33+02:00February 8th, 2012|Chicken & Poultry, Food, Mains, Recipe Index, Recipes|

This bright and zingy chicken pita is the ideal meal for when you don't have time but need the nutrition. The raw julienned beetroot is a sweet take on red cabbage slaw. Personally one I prefer. Instead of mayonnaise, I've used low fat plain yoghurt. By all means use double cream or thick Greek yoghurt if you like.

And then I stared at the chicken breasts that I purchased earlier that day. Chicken and mushroom pie, [...]

A stir fry and a Broth The beauty of this dish is two-fold: Each of the spices and condiments added can be adjusted, for example the chilli, ginger and soy sauce, to alter the flavour focus, and this can be transformed from a stir-fry, into a broth, with the addition of just water, a little [...]

Heritage Day 2010

Heritage Day previously known as Shaka Day (and having spent my childhood in the Kingdom of the Zulu, this is a name I still think of fondly), and famously christened Braai Day was not a day of leisure in this house. So while South Africans across the nation were oiling the braai-stands, or batting eyelids for an invite to a braai [...]
