Chicken, Soy and Honey combine to create a sticky sauce which works so well together. This recipe is so simple as well there is no excuse not to cook it. This is my own variation of a recipe I saw on the BBC’s Good Food TV show with Tom Kerridge. While the original recipe makes a great chicken dish, I wanted to make it more Asian inspired so I added Chinese Five Spice, a bit of grated ginger and some red chilli for a nice kick!

This recipe is a show stopper! This is the perfect marriage of chicken thighs, spice and a refreshing cucumber salad.This is dead simple and is something you can prepare a little in advance if you’re having a lazy camping day, a BBQ or just want something super tasty yet light. Unfortunately, I can’t take the credit for this as it’s actually a Bill Granger recipe but I love its simplicity so much. It’s perfect for a balmy summer evening and perfect for cooking on a barbecue! This serves 4 people nicely.

I’ve nicked this recipe from the mother in-law after she cooked me Normandy Chicken one Saturday evening. Often we cook with wine but not often do you associate Apples, or in this case cider, with chicken. Normandy is known for its apples, cream and brandy so this recipe for Normandy Chicken brings them all together in comfort food bliss. This is a one pot wonder which makes it great for cooking while camping and equally as good while sitting at home on a Saturday evening! Serve with some mashed potatoes to soak up the lovely sauce!
