Sticky Chilli Chicken

Usually I would test a recipe two or three times before I post it but since I cooked this one on my Instagram stories the other night, I have been inundated with requests for the recipe, even in its draft form so I thought, since it was pretty delicious first time around, I’ll pop the first test here for you all for easiness if you want to make it this weekend!

I love a Chinese takeaway however they are usually very points heavy and so I’m always trying to convert new dishes into the perfect fakeaway. I cooked this one up in the week after realising I had most ingredients in already and I was over the moon with how quick, easy and absolutley delicious. Don’t be put off by the longish list of ingredients. Most of them are store cupboard staples (well they certainly are if you cook lots of my recipes) and it’s worth having lots of them in to add instant flavour to many dishes.

Hoisin Duck Stir Fry with Egg Fried Rice

Before you crack on making this one, I would urge you to read my little blurb below as there are a few different ways you can serve this dish. All are delicious, but some take a little more time than others.

Indian Beef Stir Fry with Yoghurt Rice -11sp

This is a dish that I only caught the end of on an episode of Food and Drink with James Martin but it caught my eye as both the OH and I love a stir fry. Having never experimented with an Indian Stir Fry before, I thought I would give it a go. I didn’t have to make too many changes to this one as the point of the episode was healthy recipes. I did however omit much of the oil (unnecessary calories!!), regularise the portion sizes and up the spices for more flavour! You can see the original recipe here.
