Recipe: Chilli & Paprika Chicken Kebab with Pesto Pasta

It’s that time of year now, where we have the odd couple of days of sunshine between the days of wind and rain. The typical British Summer of will it rain or will it shine?

This recipe is something light, but feels so much like comfort food. Can be eaten and craved for when the weather is horrid, but is also versatile so it can be cooked on a BBQ when the weather is at it’s best.

I cooked this particular meal for me and wifey last night. By far one of the better meals I’ve ever made. It was so simple too. Not only can you whack these skewers under the grill in the kitchen, but I bet they’d be awesome on a BBQ as well.

Recipe: Nando’s Style Chicken

Plenty of people have heard of Nando’s, that chicken restaurant that sells, well, chicken. Chicken can come plain, it can come a little spicey, a medium spicy and very spicy. However, you like your chicken chances are you’ll find it served like that at Nando’s.

Recipe: Low Syn Coronation Chicken

One of my all time sandwich filler and jacket potato filling is Coronation Chicken.  The mild curry taste just has its own place on a sandwich or as a jacket potato filler.

Being a Slimming World member, I would have to syn any pre-made Coronation Chicken fillings.  This can range from 2 syns per tablespoon to 27 syns for a pot.  When you only have so many syns to use per day you start to look to create low-syn alternatives.

I thought about Coronation Chicken and it’s basically curried powder and yogurt right?  That’s all it seems to me, so I set off to experiment.  In the end, I add Curry Powder, Cinnamon, and Turmeric to yogurt and lighter than light mayonnaise to create the mixture.

Light, tasty and low syn – win win win!
