Italian inspired Chicken Burgers.

Hello everybody today I will be posting my recipe for my boyfriends favourite meal that I make for him. Since I am vegetarian I do not eat these but I do cook them for Conor since he is a fussy eater and he isn’t the best cook in the world and if I let him he would live on chicken nuggets and chips alone, so here is my recipe for an amazing chicken burger for fussy eaters.

You will need.

1 Chicken Breast per burger 
1 Teaspoon Red/green pesto
Handful of Breadcrumbs
Ciabatta rolls
Slices of buffalo Mozzarella
Slices of Tomato
Lettuce
Mayonnaise

 

Method:

  1. Butterfly and flatten out your chicken breast till they are flat enough so it will cook evenly.
  2. Spread the pesto onto the chicken on both sides.
  3. Next place your chicken breast into the breadcrumbs and coat until it sticks to the pesto.
  4. Heat up some oil in a frying pan then cook the breaded chicken until cooked all the way through and the breadcrumbs have gone golden.
  5. whilst your chicken is cooking prepare your other bits for your burgers so slice your ciabatta rolls in half spread on mayonnaise, place on some leaves of lettuce, then some slices of tomato and lastly a slice of buffalo mozzarella make sure this is in top so when you place on the chicken it will melt so make sure it is on top of all the other extras.
  6. Now once your chicken is cooked fully place on top on mozzerella place on the top bun and enjoy.


 So there you have a really easy 6 step meal that is tasty and fussy eater approved. I normally serve it with some homemade chips cooked in the oven for 40 minutes with some oil, salt and pepper on top they are delicious.

Mock mojito recipe 

Hi everybody just a quick one , I’ve recently been making these mock mojitos, since I only really drink alcohol on special occasions so I don’t have them often, but I do love a mojito, so I thought what if I make a mock mojito, I started to look to see what I had to make one and rustled this one up and I can’t get enough, it’s so refreshing with out the added alcohol, so I thought I would share this one with you. 

  1. In a glass add in the ice, mint and lime slices and crush using spoon or special cocktail crushing tool, 
  2. Into this mix add in sprite and lime cordial and stir. 
  3. Add in a straw and enjoy this super refreshing drink.

I hope you enjoyed this one was just a small little post just on this super drink, just thought I should let you all know about it, you can also make it alcoholic if you wished to just add rum of choice and then you have a normal mojito. I hope you enjoyed this mini post and thank you for reading.

Lemon curd cupcakes 🍋

This is the cupcakes I made the other day and I just thought I should share the recipe and method with you all. I used a Betty Crocker lemon cake mix and frosting to save time and I thought I would give them a go and they turned out good they was really yummy and light, I did however put my own little twist with putting lemon curd in the middle of the sponge to make them gooey and give them some extra lemon flavour. I will link where you can get some of the ingredients at the end but most you can get at any supermarket.

Ingredients:

  • Betty Crocker zesty lemon cake mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 75ml Vegetable Oil 
  • 180ml water 
  • Lemon curd 
  • Betty Crocker zesty lemon icing 
  • Cupcake cases 
  • Cupcake Baking tray

Makes 24.

                            Method

Preheat- The oven to 180°/ Gas Mark 4.

Fill- The baking tray with cupcake cases.

Mix together the Cake mix, 3 eggs, 75ml Vegetable Oil and 180ml Water, until fully blended and smooth.

Spoon- The mixture evenly into the cupcake cases, making sure not to over fill them.

Place- In pre heated oven, for 20-26 minutes, keeping an eye on them.
Leave- To cool completely on a cooling rack, making sure they are totally cool before going any further.

Spoon- Out the centre of the cupcakes, making sure not to go too leave the bottom and sides of cakes.

Fill- Center of cakes with lemon curd, you will only need a small amount, about half a teaspoon.

Frost- The top of the cakes with the zesty lemon icing, you can do what ever you like here if you can or want to you can pipe the icing or you can just spread using a knife.

Enjoy- You can now dig in and enjoy your scrummy cupcakes, I enjoyed mine with a cup of tea whilst watch the great British bake off. 

I hope you enjoyed this recipe, you can find the ingredients in any supermarket but you can get Betty Crocker zesty lemon cake mix and icing from Waitrose, Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and possibly more supermarkets but this is where I know sells them.Thank you for reading this post.

Chunky leek and potato soup recipe 

This is my soup recipe that I mentioned in my autumn/fall essentials post, it’s perfect for a cold day and especially if your feeling under the weather, so I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you try it don’t forget to leave me a comment telling me that you did.

Serves 2 

Cook on hob on medium high heat in a saucepan. 

Ingredients:

– 1 whole leek sliced finely 

– 2 carrots sliced 

– 1 large potato cut into cubes

-1 chicken stock 

-enough water to cover the ingredients 

-herbs and spices just a pinch too taste, such as/ basil,parsley,thyme and chilli powder( I like mine quite spicy so I add more of this one)

-80g Pasta per person 

-salt and pepper to taste

The recipe:

  1. Prepare all of your ingredients 
  2. Add some oil into a large saucepan and fry off the leek.
  3. Add in the carrot and potato to fry them off slightly 
  4. Mix the stock cube into a jug of water following the amount you need on the stock cube packet, then add into vegetables.
  5. Now add in all of the herbs and salt and pepper just a pinch of each too taste, but I like to add more chilli powder as I like it hot. 
  6. Next add in your pasta any type is fine, but my favourite is Farfalle, also make sure you cover the ingredients with enough water.
  7. Now you just need too wait for the pasta and potatoes too cook and soften so pop the lid on the pan and turn it down slightly so it doesn’t over cook and leave it to simmer.
  8. Keep checking it to make sure you know when it is done by tasting a piece of the pasta and try cutting the potato to see if it is still hard, this can take up to about 20 minutes but it may take longer or shorted amount of time.
  9. Once it’s done it’s ready to serve, I normally serve it with a slice of bread and butter so you can dunk it in the broth and in a large bowl. Enjoy
