Five chicken dinners

Well, need I say more? Here are five dinners made with chicken, which apparently Australians eat more of than any other meat. This year each of us will consume an average of 44kg of the stuff. Fact.

These recipes should give you a couple of kilo’s worth of inspiration (unless you’re a vegetarian, in which case you might prefer to click here.)

    I thought this was a vegetarian blog

    Chicken should never be eaten

      Nope, never even vaguely a vegetarian blog. Which is why I clearly list categories for chicken & red meat along with vegetarian. Thanks for visiting though. I’m glad I’ve given you something to hate on today.

    Oh, and we love fajitas and butter chicken in our house too, even managed to find a healthy butter chicken recipe on the interwebs that only takes 15 minutes and uses all fresh ingredients (we’re trying to cut out/reduce additives this year)

    we are a big fan of the sausage rolls too! one of our absolute fav chicken recipe is thai chicken with holy basil – it is made with chicken mince, i use a fabulously simple recipe from ‘vatch’s thai street food’ and we just serve it with rice (i hide extra veggies in it!). if you want, i can type out the recipe for you – it takes about 10 mins to make 🙂

    we also love vietnamese rice paper rolls (i give them to the kids in a ‘deconstructed’ form) – i always make a sweet chili chicken to pop in them.
