    Mum’s Chicken
    8 chicken drumsticks, skin on (the skin is important for flavour, and is so tasty to eat!)

    1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
    1⁄3 cup soy sauce
    2 1⁄2 tablespoons sugar
    1 garlic clove, peeled and bruised
    1 small hot chili pepper, slit open, seeds removed

    250 grams Quorn Soy Free, Meat free Chicken Style Fillet (cut into small cubes)
    – Marinate in the ingredients below for approx 1/2 an hour. Fry until golden (do not over fry, otherwise chicken will turn hard) and set aside.
    1 tbsp. corn flour
    ½ egg, beaten- reserve the other half for the egg-fried rice
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. black pepper powder
    pinch of red chilli powder
    pinch of sugar
    1 tsp. soya sauce
    1/2 tsp. ginger and garlic paste
    1 tbsp.chopped spring onions
    2 tbsp.oil
    1 tbsp.ketchup
    1 tsp.tomato paste/puree
    1/2 tsp. ginger
    1/2 tsp. garlic
    salt to taste
    1 tsp.sugar
    1/2 cup
    water or chicken stock
    1 tsp.corn flour mixed with water to form a light paste
    1 whole red chilli, slit
    1 green chilli, chopped
    1/2 pepper
    splash of soya sauce
    some spring onion for garnishing
    2 cups cooked rice (boiled with salt and a tsp. of oil, then drained and cooled completely)
    3 tbsp.oil
    pinch of salt and pepper

    Braised Balsamic Chicken

    6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1 teaspoon garlic
    ground black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    Season both sides of chicken breasts with garlic salt and pepper.
    Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook seasoned chicken breasts until chicken is browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add onion; cook and stir until onion is browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
    Pour diced tomatoes and balsamic vinegar over chicken; season with basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

    I like to make an ostrich mince bolognaise-type dish if I’m looking to reduce fat. Ostrich is so lean, and it tastes great!

    Heat up your pan (without oil now!), then add one diced brown onion, and a teaspoon or two of chopped garlic.’

    As the onion starts to soften and the garlic goes brown, add 500g ostrich mince to the pan and brown it off.

    Tip in two tins of chopped tomatoes, a finely chopped carrot, and a beef stock cube.

    Add some black pepper, half a teaspoon of paprika, a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, and a dash of worcestershire sauce. If you like your food with a bit of kick, now is a good time to put in some tabasco or chilli flakes too.

    I also like to add some mixed italian herbs, or some thyme and basil.

    Cover the pot and leave to simmer. 15 minutes before serving, taste and add salt if you need it.

    If you want to bulk this up with vegetables you can add diced sweet potatoes, celery and/or kidney beans when you put in the tomatoes and spices.

    Serve with either brown pasta/rice, or as a casserole with freshly cooked green vegetables.

    Thai Prawn curry


    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 onion
    , chopped
    1 tsp fresh root ginger
    1-2 tsp Thai red curry paste (we used Sharwood’s)
    400g can chopped tomatoes
    50g sachet coconut cream
    400g raw frozen prawns
    coriander, chopped, to serve (optional)

    Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Tip in the onion and ginger, then cook for a few mins until softened. Stir in the curry paste, then cook for 1 min more. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and coconut cream. Bring to the boil, then leave to simmer for 5 mins, adding a little boiling water if the mixture gets too thick.
    Tip in the prawns, then cook for 5-10 mins more, depending on how large they are. Serve alongside some plain rice and sprinkle with a little chopped coriander, if you like.

    Curried Squash & Chicken Soup – a healthy, low calorie tasty recipe!!!

    1 10-ounce package frozen pureed winter squash
    1/2 cup lite coconut milk, (see Tips for Two)
    1/2 cup water
    8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced

    Chicken Breasts Boneless
    1 ea For $5.99
    Thru 01/30
    1 6-ounce bag baby spinach
    2 teaspoons lime juice
    2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1/2-1 teaspoon Thai red curry paste, (see Note)
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Heat squash, coconut milk and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash defrosts, about 10 minutes. Add chicken, reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in spinach, lime juice, sugar, curry paste to taste and salt and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes longer.
    Tips for Two: Refrigerate coconut milk for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 2 months. Drizzle on sliced fresh fruit; use as some of the liquid for cooking rice.
    Note: Red curry paste is a blend of chile peppers, garlic, lemongrass and galangal (a root with a flavor similar to ginger). Look for it in jars or cans in the Asian section of the supermarket or specialty stores.

    Beef Noodle Stir-Fry



    1 lb flank steak, thinly sliced crosswise (to make slicing easier, partially freeze the meat before slicing)
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic (or to taste)
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
    2 tablespoons sesame oil
    hot pepper flakes (I add in about 1/2 teaspoon or a little more)
    1 onion, sliced
    1⁄2 lb mushroom (to taste)
    1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    1 1⁄2 cups chicken broth (preferably low-sodium)
    1⁄3 cup hoisin sauce
    1⁄4 cup soy sauce (preferably low-sodium)
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    6 -7 ounces fresh snow peas, trimmed
    7 -8 ounces angel hair pasta (cooked el dente, heat under hot water before adding the noodles into the hot wok) or 7 -8 ounces use thin rice noodles
    1 1⁄2 cups baby corn, drained and rinsed


    Saute the beef with 1/2 tablespoon garlic and about 1/2 tablespoon fresh ginger in a wok or in a nonstick skillet (I prefer a wok for this) with about 1 tablespoon sesame oil for 4-5 minutes, until almost cooked through; transfer to a plate.
    In the wok with remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil, saute remaining garlic and ginger with hot pepper flakes, sliced onion, mushrooms and sweet pepper for about 4 minutes (make certain that the wok is hot).
    In a small bowl whisk together broth, soy sauce and cornstarch.
    Add to the wok or skillet; cook stirring for 2 minutes.
    Add in snow peas, cooked noodles or rice sticks (if using) stir-fry over medium-low heat to thicken (about 4 minutes).
    Add in beef and baby corn; mix gently to combine, cover and let stand on the heat for 2 minutes.
