IMGP7549

So as you all know, chicken plays a prominent role in our household. While I have finally learnt to love fish, it is less accessible in our neighborhood than chicken, so we find ourselves with the bird more often than not. Sunday Roast is something that I’ve never been able to get fully on board…

CHICKEN!  Being limited in choice with old Priya floating around the house means I’ve gotta think up new and wonderful ways to make chicken exciting. This dish, leveraging off that delicious nutty, seedy, spicy blend – Dukkah, is both tasty and simple to make….

IMGP7400

Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to receive some sauces from Roza’s Gourmet Sauces- a family-owned company based in Brisbane that makes all-natural, gluten-free delights. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a lover of all things saucy- dips, marinades…the list goes on. So I was delighted when Roza’s gave us their Chilli Ginger…

Raj on Taj is a classic Indian establishment with two locations in Adelaide. Alex and I stopped by after I was struck by a craving for Indian food (these happen often), and were quickly seated by a friendly waitress who was more than happy to chat with us about our holidays. When it came time…

I started the other night with some chicken breasts. I had no idea where I was going from there when I opened up the fridge- my mind went Indian, Greek, Mexican, before finally settling on Italian. This incredibly easy recipe (you basically do all of the work when you make the marinade!) requires the following:…

Braised Chicken w/ Apple & Calvados

calvados

Second Course Here you go guys, the second course. This recipe jumped out at me because it was aggressively flavoured with apples, from the granny smiths and apple cider to the Calvados brandy.  I was intrigued to see if the final dish would be overly sweet, however it worked extremely well with the seasoned chicken…

Chicken Parmi w/ Parsnip Fries

parma

Having not eating a chicken parmi (chicken parmigiana) since Australia and with a chicken breast ready and waiting in the fridge, I knew exactly what was on the menu tonight, can you guess? Pasta. No just kidding, a parmi.. Parmigiana originates in Italy from the word Parmesan, therefore it is traditionally breaded vegetables or meat…

The French have some of the most delicious food in the world, albeit some of the most unhealthy too.  Take any food, drown it in butter or cream and hey presto! you’ve got yourself French food.  So why wouldn’t a French inspired Italian pasta be delicious? It would, so here it is. All you will…

Quick and Easy Chicken Gyros

gyros

Making gyros at home is crazy easy, especially when you cheat a bit and use store bought marinated chicken. We really enjoy Trader Joes’ sundried-tomato marinated chicken breasts- they are full of flavour and hold up great on the grill. The only component that actually requires work aside from the chicken is the tzatziki sauce….
