Jamie Olivers ‘Epic Roast Chicken Salad’ recipe review

Posted on

I saw this recipe in Jamie Oliver’s ‘Jamie’s Great Britain’ recipe book and thought I had to give it a try – I am SO glad I did as it was easy, cheap, and the flavour was just amazing – I think this is one of mine (and my husband’s) favourite dishes now!

The chicken was simply roasted with lemon and thyme and then left to cool, so this bit I did in advance in the morning which was easy enough.

The second part was just as easy, using torn up bread as chunky croutons which were infused with the flavours of the juices of the chicken, a while bulb of garlic, cherry tomatoes, olive oil and crispy streaky bacon. The flavours were delicious!

I have had a hunt for the recipe online but can’t seem to find it, though the recipe list is here if you want to take a peek – if however you need an easy and extremley delicious recipe I highly recommend a trip to the library to get this book…..

Enjoy! x


Jamie Oliver’s ‘Kate and Will’s Wedding Pie Recipe’

Posted on

This is one of those recipes that you don’t want to do every day as it is time consuming, but oh my it is worth it!

The recipe is simple to follow and the ingredients inexpensive. I somehow managed to make more than stated in the recipe ( used slightly less meat and slightly more pearl barley and managed to make 3 pies, they are all smaller than in the recipe but will certainly serve my husband and I for at least three different dinners and can be frozen too.)

The suet pastry is soft and crumbly and the rich filling includes stout, beef, pearl barley, cheese and mustard. Ours is served with steamed baby carrots and green beans. Delicious!

Thanks Jamie for a fantastic recipe – can be found here if you fancy giving it a go.

Jamie Oliver’s Curried Cauliflower Fritters

Posted on

This recipe is great and a lovely way of making veg more interesting, it is very similar to tempura – the batter is really light and not at all filling or gloopy. The recipe was very easy and quick and I think it would go really nice with fish or chicken too.┬áI used broccoli, carrrots and cauliflower to make it more varied and served it with some spiced rice and grilled mackerel. Delicious!

Home-made mini pizzas

Posted on

My very good friend made a batch of mini-pizzas for her little one and I was inspired to do the same. Unfortunately our bread-maker isn’t quite so good so I had to make the dough by hand but it has been quite a few months since I last made some so made a nice change. I used a Jamie Oliver recipe for pizza dough – simply because I have used it several times in the past and it has always worked out well – the link can be found hereTopped with a home-made tomato sauce, grated cheese, and basil from the garden and popped in the freezer for quick and easy lunches and dinners, I’ll top them with extras depending on what’s in the fridge at the time before cooking them in the oven. They are a BIG hit with’T’!

Oh – and don;t forget to pop over and have a look at the fab blogs at ‘Handmade Monday!’ – I need to finish some of the projects I have started soon!…………

They are a big hit with little ‘T’!
