Starting my meal plan on a Saturday allows me to meal plan around any activities we have on the weekend. We love enjoying something more indulgent like this Hainanese Chicken Rice on the weekend.
Hainanese Chicken Rice
For those who grew up eating this dish, like my husband and best friend, it holds a special place in their hearts. But even if you’re new to Hainanese chicken rice, don’t be intimidated by its reputation as a complicated dish. In reality, it’s much easier to make than it looks, and it’s a delicious meal that the whole family will love.
Beans with Fried Rice and Dumplings
An absolute family favourite. Beans and pork mince caramelised in a sticky, sweet sauce served with fried rice and dumplings – how can it be anything other than delicious? Many components of this dish can be made in advance. Both the dumplings and fried rice are fantastic freezer staples. It’s the final flourish of chilli oil that does it for me!
Looking for a delicious and easy pasta recipe to impress your guests? Look no further than my delicious prawn spaghetti recipe! With succulent fresh prawns, perfectly cooked pasta, and a rich tomato sauce, this dish will surely become a family favourite. And the best part – one pot heaven. Less washing up and more time enjoying this tasty meal.
Chicken Teriyaki Bowl
Like many of us, I used to buy teriyaki marinade. The individual ingredients to make my own were too expensive, difficult to find at the shops, or I didn’t think I had time… I was wrong. Not only is this super easy and quick to get out on the dinner table, but it’s also better value! The taste is authentic and better than any store-bought marinade I’ve tried… Plus, you get the satisfaction of knowing exactly what is in yours! I love teriyaki served up in a bowl just like this. Try the recipe with beef or tofu – Equally delicious!
Peri Peri Chicken Oven Baked
Spice up your next roast chicken with my Peri Peri Chicken Oven Baked recipe. This dish is sure to impress, made with a free-range chicken and a flavorful marinade of char-grilled capsicum, fresh garlic, onion powder, sweet paprika, and oregano. The best part? It requires little effort and is baked in the oven, making it the perfect meal for any night of the week.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup
It’s time to elevate the humble pumpkin soup! With its deep, toasty flavour, this roasted pumpkin soup is a must-try. Best of all, the recipe requires minimal chopping and preparation. It only takes ten minutes to prepare this delicious, warm and comforting meal. Then leave the oven to work its magic. I like to top it with a dollop of sour cream, finely chopped chives, chilli flakes and crusty sourdough bread on the side.
Baked Chicken Risotto
This is chicken risotto made easy and fast. Traditionally risotto is a dish cooked by adding broth to rice until it reaches a creamy consistency. But this quick, no-fuss, oven-baked method produces perfectly fluffy, garlic infused rice. Stir through spinach leaves and parmesan at the end for a simple, one pot dinner or use any of the vegetable alternatives listed below.
