Chicken Roll

Chicken Roll came to my rescue a few nights ago. Hubby invited someone for supper and I was so unprepared. Luckily for me, I received a Today Pastry Mystery Basket earlier that day and I had leftover chicken from the previous night. This leftover chicken roll reminded me of my days in the Knysna School […]

Chicken and mushroom Pot Pies

Chicken and Mushroom

Chicken and Mushroom is such a classic combination, especially in a pie. I think the chicken and mushroom combination works, because both chicken and mushroom are not overpowering flavors. Both favors just resonate home cooking to me. Whether it is in a Creamy Chicken and Mushroom One Pan wonder, Chicken Cheesecake or Meraai se pie, […]

De-boned Roast Chicken

De-boned roast chicken has been on my to-do-list for a very long time. Roast chicken, I think I have perfected ( according to my family), but de-boned roast chicken I have avoided for far to long. The fear of failure is my downfall in life and it was also what kept me from trying to […]

Chinese Chicken – the best I’ve tasted so far!

Chinese Chicken

Chinese Chicken can mean a gazillion different things, but to me, it means take-out and lots of it. I worked in Port Elizabeth for a good couple of years, met my husband there and after a while we moved to the mother city, Cape Town. Whilst living in Port Elizabeth, Michael’s, a no-fuss Chinese take […]

Nachos Chicken

Nachos Chicken, it has to be delicious right? That’s what I thought! Nachos chicken – I am not sure if it was my invention of not, I certainly would like to think so! There are many recipes for Chicken Nachos, but not many for Nachos Chicken! The idea is that you coat the chicken with […]

bitterballen

Bitterballen is a snack from Dutch decent and enjoyed with drinks at pubs and restaurants not only in the Netherlands, but worldwide. Bitterballen is meat-based and is usually made with either veil or beef, but I opted for chicken! I made bitterballen the first time last year for a Fairview event and was quite nervous […]

Coq à la Bière – Ok, Chicken cooked in Beer!

Coq à la Bière

Coq à la Bière sounds very classy, like it should be something really difficult and complicated to make! Coq à la Bière on the contrary is something so far from difficult and classy it isn’t even funny! Maybe if I help you a little, you will be less confused, Coq à la Bière is the country-girl sister […]

Chicken Casserole with Brie and broccoli!

Chicken Casserole

Chicken Casserole seems like such a simple dish to make, but if you get it wrong, you end up with a dismal mess! Chicken casserole for me has to be creamy and full of flavor. The chicken pieces must still be identifiable, there is nothing I hate more than dishing up some chicken casserole and […]

Brie, Chicken and Olive supper – heaven in every mouthful!

brie

Brie, or as my children used to call it…. stinky cheese. Yes, I know it is not even the real stinky one, but for them it was. These days, they love it and I cannot keep up buying more! Brie is a soft cow’s milk cheese, named after the French region where it originated from! […]

Smoked chicken has become a stock item in my fridge, because it is so versatile! I can whip up a sandwich in no time and have you ever added chopped smoked chicken to  your standard tomato pasta sauce ….. it is delicious! Smoked chicken is relatively cheap to buy, but making your own smoked chicken […]
