A great Chicken Marinade

This is a great everyday Chicken Marinade, one you make with things you’ve already got with plenty of sub options (see notes). It will make any cut of chicken extra juicy, infuse it with savoury flavour that’s a touch of sweet, with a hint of herby goodness. Especially good for chicken breast, and terrific for …

Whole Baked Fish

The easiest and best way to cook a fish is to bake it whole. The flesh is at its juiciest and most tender, and it’s completely effortless. Cooking fish this way is easy enough for midweek meals, but still makes an impressive centrepiece for occasions! I’m using a whole snapper today, but this recipe will work for virtually any fish!

Oven Baked Chicken and Rice

Made entirely in the oven (no stove!), the rice in this recipe is outrageously delicious! It’s buttery and garlicky, tender but not mushy. The secret tip is to briefly bake onion with garlic and butter before adding the rice, liquids and chicken – it adds a great flavour base!

Honey Garlic Chicken Breast

An incredible quick and easy way to serve up chicken breast – seared then simmered in the most amazing honey garlic sauce. Don’t be deceived by the short ingredient list! It’s absolutely worth the extra step of dusting the chicken with flour because it creates a crust for the sauce to cling to.

Pea and Ham Soup

This is a fabulous “throw it all in the slow cooker” soup. There’s no need to cook the onion separately – it “sautés” itself in the fat from the ham that rises to the surface. Thick, hearty soup broth infused with incredible flavour from the ham! Use leftover ham bone, or purchase a ham hock.
