Been a little run down lately and the FF is on hold until my arm is better, so here’s what we had on Wednesday.
Recipe 1: Chicken and Pea Fry.
An excellent way of using leftover chicken and veg or of just putting together a meal when you’re in a rush.
-4 chicken drumsticks
(can swap peas and beans for legumes of any variety)
-5-6 leaves of lettuce
-4 medium carrots
-2 rashers of bacon
-chopping board and knives
1: Slice the chicken from the bone and roughly cube it.
2: Dice the carrots.
3: Heat the oil in the pan.
4: Seal both sides of each piece of chicken before adding the carrots.
5: Cook the chicken and carrot right down before adding the legumes.
6: Turn the pan to a lower heat. Slice and add the bacon and lettuce.
7: Once the lettuce is wilted, serve.
Recipes 2 and 3: Strawberry Jam and Ice-Cream.
Jon doesn’t normally like strawberries or anything related to them, but he enjoyed this so that’s a success.
-300ml double cream
-mixing bowl (microwave safe)
-plastic tupperware (freezer safe)
1: Mash the strawberries.
2: Add the sugar.
3: Microwave until thickened.
4: Pour the excess fluid into tupperware.
5: Use fork and funnel to put the thickened jam into the jar. Secure the lid tightly and place in the fridge.
6: Mix the cream into the strawberry fluid. Freeze.
