Chicken Pasta Bake with Feta, Pumpkin and Kale

I always find that the last few weeks of term are packed to the brim with activities. It's like the school suddenly realises that they had planned to do a number of things during the term and for some reason, they all end up in the last three weeks. Even trying to catch up with… Continue reading Chicken Pasta Bake with Feta, Pumpkin and Kale

Mexican Chicken Sunshine Salad

There is something about Corn in a salad that always makes me smile - it's a little like having Sunshine on a plate. This is by no means a traditional Mexican salad but it has enough of the basic ingredients and spices so I think it qualifies. The rest is pretty much what I had in the fridge at… Continue reading Mexican Chicken Sunshine Salad


Malaysian Chicken Noodle Soup

Now this is a very old favourite. I hadn't made this soup in about 10 years as it comes from one of my first ever recipe books purchased way back when. I have no idea how authentic it is either, but delicious it certainly is! I've had a horrendous cold this past week and generally… Continue reading Malaysian Chicken Noodle Soup

Hearty Chicken and Veggie Casserole

This past week I decided to give myself a break from red meat.  Don't get me wrong, I love red meat, but I think we eat too much of it at times, so a week of chicken, bacon or veggies (may have to throw in some fish tonight) has been well received by my body,… Continue reading Hearty Chicken and Veggie Casserole


Coke Chicken

The last time I tried making coke chicken was about 10 years ago, but it was just too rich with the combination of ingredients.  My husband recently brought up the topic again so, of course, I jumped straight in looking for that awesome mixture that would delight the taste buds.  I came across a recipe… Continue reading Coke Chicken
