    • Taleggio-stuffed-chicken.jpg

      Taleggio stuffed chicken

      Taleggio stuffed chicken is an easy but impressive main dish that is perfect for dinner parties. Simple chicken breast fillets are made extra special by stuffing them with tangy Taleggio cheese before wrapping in salty Parma ham. This dish is quick and easy, and can be prepared, stuffed and wrapped in advance, leaving only a little cooking required before serving. Taleggio is a northern Italian cow's milk cheese. It has a soft texture and strong and punchy aroma, but a mild and creamy favour. It melts beautifully and works well in toasted sandwiches, pasta bakes, and as a pizza topping. To be called Taleggio, the cheese must be made in the Italian regions of Lombardy and Piedmont, but can be easily found in most supermarkets. Keeping with the Italian theme, Parma ham, or prosciutto di Parma, is an Italian, dry cured ham, cured for a minimum of 12 months. It is popularly served as it is, as part of an antipasti platter, but also makes a great alternative to bacon. If you want an impressive dinner party recipe that is easy to make but delivers great results, then this Taleggio stuffed chicken is for you.

    • pesto chicken courgetti

      Courgette spaghetti with pesto and chicken

      Courgette spaghetti with pesto and chicken is a quick and easy dish that is both healthy and packed with flavour. If you love pasta, but want to eat something a bit lighter and lower in carbs, then courgette spaghetti is for you. The spiralised courgette acts just like spaghetti and is the perfect base for a pasta sauce. Even better - these clever noodles can count towards one of your five a day. Even fussy eaters won't notice they're eating vegetables when it's disguised as pasta. We've served our courgette spaghetti with home made pesto and seasoned, pan fried chicken fillets. Making your own pesto is so easy and gives far better results than anything you can buy in the shops. All you need to do is blend a few ingredients and you've got a fresh and punchy sauce, without any artificial flavourings or additives. Our recipe uses quark, a lower fat cheese product, popular in Germany, which reduces the fat content and gives the pesto a creamy texture. Courgette spaghetti with pesto and chicken is the perfect healthy summer supper.

    • BBQ chicken

      BBQ chicken with Middle Eastern spices and salsa

      Spice up your barbecue with this recipe for Middle Eastern spiced BBQ chicken, which is served with a fresh tomato salsa that complements and cools the heat of the spices. Marinating chicken before cooking allows the flavours to develop and makes the meat more tender, so the little bit of work in advance is well worth it for the tasty end results. This spiced chicken is flavoured with Baharat, a Middle Eastern spice blend. Baharat is readily available in supermarkets, but if you can't find it try mixing 2 tsp each of paprika, coriander and cumin with 1/2 tsp each of nutmeg and black pepper. For big gatherings we like to make all our BBQ marinades ahead of time, and this one is no exception. If you want to get prepped early too then simply mix all the marinade ingredients together and freeze until needed. This BBQ chicken marinade will defrost quickly, just remember to get it out on the morning of your barbecue and leave it at room temperature until liquid enough to coat your chicken pieces in.

    • Creamy chicken plate pie

      Chicken plate pie

      Our chicken plate pie couldn't be easier to rustle up, thanks to a few handy cheats. The sauce is deliciously rich and creamy thanks to a good helping of creme fraiche, and the tarragon stirred through adds a real hit of herby fragrance. Because this pie is relatively shallow you can afford to serve it up in generous slices, which the family are sure to love. Our favourite side is of course the match-made-in-heaven that is creamy mashed potatoes! Try adding finely chopped spring onions and lots of black pepper to yours, to offset the richness of this dish and you'll be in for a treat. If there are only a couple of you eating then you'll be pleased to know this chicken plate pie reheats beautifully the next day too - just remember to make sure the meat is hot through before tucking in.
