chorizo and pea risotto recipe

Chorizo and pea risotto recipe

This chorizo and pea risotto recipe is the perfect midweek meal for a busy family. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook. The kids love it and always ask for a second helping. It is versatile too. If you don't have any chorizo, replace it with some bacon or perhaps some leftover chicken from your Sunday Roast.

I always like to make recipes quick and easy. With only three steps and 30 minutes of cooking, this fits the bill well. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

roast pork fillet

Roast Pork Fillet with shallots and apple

There is something nice about a piece of pork fillet. It always seems to look lovely on the plate, but it also cooks fairly quickly. This results in a delicious roast dinner, that the kids love and with very little effort or time.

The middle boy found this recipe online and asked me to try it. I needed to make some adjustments to make it work with the herbs and spices we had in the cupboard. It turned out amazing and will be back on the dinner table again at some point in the near future.


Mango Chicken Bake

Mango Chicken Bake

Mango Chicken Bake. This was a really simple one pot dish from the BBC good food magazine and a bit of a crowd pleaser too. Except for the little lady, who was in a ‘I only like cereal mood’, although she reluctantly ate it all very quickly and asked for more of the fruity chicken, whilst saying it wasn’t good because it wasn’t cereal.


Easy Chicken and Bacon Pie Dad's Delicious Dinners

Chicken and Bacon Pie

The boys love pies and frequently request them. This particular easy chicken pie recipe is quick and affordable to make. It is also easy to change some ingredients to use up food you have left in the fridge.

In this recipe I used chicken breast, because I managed to get it really cheap in the yellow sticker section of the supermarket. However, I have also used left over roast chicken and skinless chicken thighs (chopped up). You could skip the bacon and add more vegetables if you wish. The basic process is the same when you swap around the ingredients. You can even skip the puff pastry and use mash potatoes or slice some potatoes in to thin crisps and top the pie with them.
