Recipes that rely on ingredients that can easily be found in your cupboards are always winners in my book; this quick pan-fried chicken recipe is made all the more delicious by using staples like mustard, honey and capers for a punchy sauce. Serve with rice, couscous or just lightly dressed salad leaves

Serves: 4

Ingredients (US & METRIC):

1 tbsp olive oil
8 rashers of smoked streaky
bacon, roughly chopped
8 skinless chicken thigh fillets
30g (1 oz) butter
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
150ml (scant ½ cup) white wine
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp honey
2 tbsp capers
5 dashes of hot sauce, or to taste
Handful of flat-leaf parsley
250g (9 oz) tenderstem broccoli
Sea salt and freshly ground
black pepper

1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan (skillet) and fry the bacon until golden and crisp. Scoop out with a slotted spoon, leaving the fat in the pan. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and fry in the same pan over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side until just cooked through.
2. Return the bacon to the pan and add the butter and garlic. Cook for a minute then, once the butter has melted, add the wine, mustard, honey, capers, hot sauce and half of the parsley and let it reduce to a thickened sauce, about 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Meanwhile, blanch the tenderstem in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, drain.
4. Serve the chicken with the broccoli, scattered with the remaining parsley.

It is a joy for every hardworking mother to cook special, tasty dishes for her family. One such dish is chicken pasta, which even the most finicky kid is sure to love. However, when we talk about chicken pasta recipes, we are not just referring to the typical “meat-and-tomato sauce on spaghetti” fare.

One of the easiest food types for a budding solar chef to cook in a solar oven is fish. In fact ironically solar fish is almost too easy to cook and needs to be carefully monitored to avoid overcooking and drying out.

There are various alternative solar chicken dishes available with the casseroles, curries, stews and pasta dishes making up the bulk of the selection.

Basic Biscuits Are Great To Have As A Staple To The Household – Live Comfortably Gluten Free

I find that biscuits should be the staple food in any household. Gluten Free households are no exception.

Being Gluten Free is anything but easy, but if you don’t give up on food it can sometimes be very rewarding.

Green Bean Avocado Arugula Salad

I came up with the idea of this salad because I wanted something filling (that’s why I chose green beans and avocado) yet refreshing (the crisp and watery Chinese pear) and very green (arugula, my favourite salad plant!) and flavourful (black olives and blue cheese). Hubby said he could not stay in the same room with blue cheese and ostentatiously lit an aromatic candle in the living room. What’s so wrong with blue cheese?! I love it in salad dressings. And I loved the Chinese pear. Of course I drizzled both the avocado and the pear with lemon juice, but anyway the pear kept very well without darkening at all. I also cut the avocado in larger slices, so it was my first avocado salad that didn’t come out mushy.
