Balsamic Chicken Traybake

It’s hard to beat a traybake for an easy way to get a delicious balanced meal on the table. When I shared this recipe back in July for my One Pan Wonder Week, people loved how easy it was. They were thrilled that in under 10 minutes, dinner was in the oven and they could do something else while it cooked. And it was pretty well-received by their families too. I’ve heard from many who have cooked it over and over again and told me that their kids love it. I hope it becomes a family favourite in your house too.

Honey and Soy Marinade

This is my go-to recipe for a simple marinade without the questionable ingredients (hello flavour enhancers) you might find in pre-marinated meat or in a bottled marinade in the supermarket.

It even works as a stir fry sauce for a speedy mid-week dinner.

What’s not to love about that? Continue reading

Roast Chicken Seasoning and Ways with Leftovers

You know that tasty seasoning that store-bought barbecue rotisserie chickens are smothered in? The really more-ish stuff that makes you want to eat all the skin? Well, I love it. And so does my 4-year-old daughter. But I suspect that there are probably some ingredients lurking in there that I’d rather we didn’t eat. And, like most things, making your own at home is so much cheaper. So, I set about coming up with a seasoning for my roast chicken that was just as tasty. And I think I’ve found it…I mean, look at that picture above. Doesn’t it make you drool? Continue reading
