Strawberry & elderflower gateau with strawbery coulis

Strawberry Gateau - I’m going to be honest and say I didn’t price this up because I forgot. It was a special treat during the holidays. Also, whilst being honest I wasn’t too sure how it would turn out because I haven’t really cooked a pudding before. Well, I say cook, this actually doesn’t involve any cooking! As it turned out, it wasn’t bad! Oh, before I woke up this morning I didn’t even know what a coulis was, let alone how to make one.


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.
