The Chicken Parmo is a classic, delicious takeaway treat originating from Teesside. Often associated with trips to the kebab shop after a boozy night out, in its hometown this famous dish is often served with lashing of garlic sauce after being gloriously deep fried. The result is delicious but off the scale in terms of points/calories.
I’ve previously posted a recipe for kangaroo stroganoff but I thought, since beef is slightly more common, I should probably post my recipe of the more traditional version of the dish. You can serve the stroganoff with whatever you fancy, pasta, rice or potatoes, the worlds your oyster! I’ve pointed it with pasta here so just be sure to amend the points if you use an alternative.
There are a few recipes that I get asked to make WW friendly a lot and chicken pie and chicken korma are two of the most popular. After putting it to a vote on Instagram, you chose the pie as the first of these two recipes you would like to see so, your wish is my command!
This is a lovely creamy pie filling recipe which feels really indulgent. I served the pie with a 50g garden peas per person and that was enough for me however if you have a very hungry OH, you could always serve with some mash too!
Much to my family’s disappointment, I’m just not a fan of Shepherd’s or Cottage Pie. Nothing to do with the taste or flavour, I just can’t handle the texture of mince with mashed potato for some reason! Keen to make a nice, wintery and warming meal this weekend, I decided to put a bit of a twist on the regular Cottage pie by replacing the traditional beef mince with some chunky beef stewing steak and turning the whole thing into more of a Steak and Ale pie vibe. The addition of the stilton to the mash is wonderful, it adds a lovely tang to what is a smooth and comforting pie topper. If you aren’t keen on blue cheese, simply leave this out. If you do, the points are 10sp per portion.
Me and the OH love our pork at the moment so tonight, with the pork out the freezers and all defrosted, I fancied trying something new and easy. I opened my fridge to see what we had that I could use up and popped the following together and it was delicious! The OH couldn’t believe it was so low in point and it was so filling and tasty. If you don’t have any cider to hand I think it would be just as nice without it but it does just add something a little bit different!
