Chicken Chasseur

Misleading menu titles, the Hunter’s Chicken episode. Hunter’s chicken (French: poulet chasseur, poulet à la chasseur and poulet sauté chasseur), such a classic but over the years it has been hijacked by American theories of taking the original and smothering it with cheese. I shall redress that and henceforth within this post there is no further mention of the offening curd. We shall also...

Sri Lankan Curried Chicken Pasta

Apologies, this has taken far too long to get to print and now with Christmas upon us you could possibly store this one up, use some of your leftover turkey or wait until the new year; entirely your choice.

After an investment of several hundred £ in tents, sleeping bags and the best toilet on the market I decided...

Honey and Madras Roast Chicken

Family time means everything to me, time to create, to enjoy, and most imortantly of all time to share. Every week we hold a ballot in #ParlezPantry to determine what we shall have for Sunday Lunch, each voter be they 9yrs old, or >51yrs old holds equal sway. This week was my choice and due to the heavy workload of the day job I opted for a nice and simple roast chicken, it really is the most simplest of presentations you can make...
