Homemade Chicken Kebabs
Store-bought chicken kebabs are convenient and fast, but there is nothing like the flavour and satisfaction you get from making your own. These homemade chicken kebabs take 15 minutes of preparation, but they deliver an option that is healthier, cheaper and tastier! We love these garlic-infused chicken kebabs on the barbecue served with a classic green salad, roasted potatoes and garlic aioli. Check out the recipe for instructions on how to barbecue, pan-fry or oven-bake these delicious skewers.
This bolognese sauce is seriously delicious and simple to make! It’s the ultimate comfort food that’ll make you feel all warm and cozy inside. The trick is to take your time and cook the veggies slowly while adding some beef stock to make it extra rich and flavorful. It’s perfect for feeding a hungry family of four, and the leftovers are just as good (if not better!). You can also stash some in the freezer for an easy meal anytime.
Red Wine Lamb Shanks
Red wine lamb shanks are a hearty and comforting dish perfect for a cosy evening at home. This recipe involves low and slow cooking and results in tender, falling-off-the-bone lamb with a rich sauce that is amazing drizzled over a bed of silky smooth mashed potatoes. It’s the perfect dish for entertaining during the cooler months, with a ‘wow’ factor that will impress your guests while still being easy to prepare.
Pork with Garlic Rice
Pork with Garlic Rice is one of my family’s favourite meals. It is so simple to throw together and super quick to cook. Day-old rice is transformed into fragrant garlic rice, and the pork mince is caramelised in a dark, sticky sauce. It finished with a fried egg with a gooey centre and crunchy, fresh vegetables. This is the ultimate midweek meal. Customise with your choice of vegetables, fresh herbs and chilli.
Sticky Soy Chicken Wings
Fall of the bone, easy, sticky soy chicken wings. These are budget-friendly, and I love how simple they are to prepare. The marinade is made with accessible supermarket ingredients. It’s the perfect balance of salty and sweet, and trust me, they are addictive!
Easy Butter Chicken
Many of the butter chicken recipes I have come across are pretty complex. They require multiple ingredients and long marinating times; some even require ingredients to be blitzed in a food processor. This one is made with the simplest ingredients, and I can have dinner on the table within 15 minutes. The flavour is so intense and delicious. Bite-sized pieces of perfectly cooked chicken in a creamy butter chicken sauce is the perfect recipe for a fast and easy dinner.
