Chicken fricassée (#76)

I’ve wandered back briefly to French cuisine for you today. Oddly, I wouldn’t quite say I’ve made a fricassée before, although as it is defined as meat cooked in a white sauce I’ve definitely made food along the lines of a fricassée countless times. Fun fact, this was a favourite dish of Abraham Lincoln. Obviously,…

Quick chicken curry (#74)

I won’t make a huge song and dance about this one, but it is actually a great one to have in your repertoire as a way of turning some curry paste into a curry with more flavour than those pre-created supermarket pastes tend to achieve on their own. This is a thank you to the Hairy…

Coriander chicken with wild rice (#73)

I’ve been a tad busy. And being a tad busy means I have been cooking, getting in the kitchen, trying out new things… but woefully bad at writing them up and sharing them with you all and for that I am sorry. So, to make up for it I am sharing a recipe that I’ve…

African drumsticks (#63)

This one is a little bit left field. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve cooked any food unambiguously from the African continent, and definitely not any sub-Saharan cuisine.  But what else is this blog for? What really won me over is the ability to make far ahead of time. A week ahead even! Simply combine…

Rajasthani saffron chicken curry (#62)

Forgive the terrible photo. My dieting at the start of 2019 depends on me be over the top on packaging, freezing and then reheating a mass batch of Sunday cooking. With that aside, I want to just say that this is a wonderful little curry to have in your repertoire. Definitely one I’ll make again,…

Indian-spiced chicken & potato traybake (#60)

The smell that comes from the oven after only 10 minutes of cooking this traybake is to die for. I know, I know. I promised to stop cooking solely from At My Table but it was just so hard not to. I’m on annual leave until the end of the month, but this week I don’t…

Paprika chicken (#54)

I had the most tremendous goulash on my trip to Hungary at Easter this year. I cannot recommend Aszú Étterem enough (the city has so many fantastic restaurants it’s hard to beat, but this restaurant just nabbed the ‘best main course’). A few weeks after I got back I tried out a Hairy Bikers’ goulash…

Chicken balti (#49)

Last weekend I went back to visit my dearest Mother. When she has various gifts for me she asks me to bring a suitcase in which to take everything back to my London flat. In this case, she bought me a book by John Torode. Leaving that to one side for a moment, I also…

Quick chicken chasseur (#44)

This is my first recipe where I’ve taken it not from Nigella, or indeed another celebrity chef, but simply from BBC Good Food. But, y’know what, that’s perfectly acceptable. Food is food, and good food is good food (no pun intended). I made this the other week when I was knackered, and wanted some packed…

Quick chicken cacciatore (#40)

This one is going to be one of my new staples. If you skim read through the pages of this blog you’ll see the words ‘quick’ and ‘easy’ paid as the highest compliment to many of the recipes. Is it considered unsuitable in someone who enjoys cooking that they prefer to have it done and…

Spiced chicken salad with bite (#38)

This is the first time I’ve eaten something that can be called a salad and I’ve thought ‘I’m enjoying this’. As unfair to salads as that opening line was – I promise that I do love my veg – I question those that eat salads in any capacity other than as a starter to a…

Spicy chicken & lettuce (#27)

When I want something quick it’s ideal if it’s basically preparing the stages pretty easily and then just smash them together in sequence. This one has the potential to look impressive for relatively little effort (mine doesn’t have half the garnishes that the Hairy Bikers recommend, so mine is not a great example of this)….
