Easy Butter Chicken Recipe
This easy, tasty butter chicken recipe is one of our most popular recipes. While there are a lot of nice pre-bought sauces, this one tastes even better and gives you the satisfaction of creating a great dish from scratch.
Butter chicken is a kiwi favourite – great for adults and kids alike! – and this recipe will become a family favourite in no time.
Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom Fettuccine
This dish is inspired by classic Italian pastas – using fettuccine and pairing it with a creamy sauce to bring the best out of the chicken.
This dish isn’t spicy so its good for the whole family – if you’re feeling adventurous you can switch things up by adding extra ingredients as you see fit.
Chicken, Ham and Asparagus Pies
This one is a little different – instead of a main meal, this is more of a snack for parties or family get togethers. Chicken and asparagus go really well together, so these mini pies will be guaranteed to be a big hit.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could try putting the mixture into a single pie to feed a whole family, but these work so well as little snack bites we daren’t mess with the recipe!
Asian Sticky Chicken Nuggets
When I first saw this recipe I couldn’t wait to try it, and it was an instant hit! Its inspired by Asian flavours, but is really easy to make and accessible so everyone can enjoy it.
Be careful not to over-reduce the sauce so it gets too strong – if it does, just add water to the sauce to thin it back down again.
Despite the name, this dish is as American as apple pie! A great, different way to use chicken, by turning it into schnitzel and smothering it with delicious tomato sauce.
This recipe is very versatile – make your own schnitzel if you’ve got time, or if you’re in a pinch you can use pre-made schnitzel for a quick family friendly meal.
