Quick/Easy winter/warm food – 38weeks pregnantot, so need it be simply but delicious!!!!?
I really need your help – i’m sick to death of cooking the same food day in, day out.. Every week we seem to be having Spag bol, chilli con carni, pizza, roast dinner (beef, lamb, chicken) cheese and potato pie, pasta bake and coodle..
I am 38weeks pregnant and love food – but want Recipes or ideas for new dinners for me, my partner and 4yr old son. My son loves food also, but not so keep on red foods – pepper, tomato (uncooked – none the wiser when cooked in food) etc. Other than that we aren’t very fussy – oh apart from the fact i hate the thought of meat off a bone – i like it to be cooked to a point fallen off!!
As I said, i just want idea’s of things i can cook, that can be left to slowly cook or can be cooked within 30minutes as i hate having to stand there for ages.
Thank you all LOADS in advance…xx
p.s: anyone know any good chicken stew recipies??x
Chicken Stew…A meal in a bowl!!
Skinless boneless chicken breast, cut in to bite sized bits.
Carrot peeled and sliced.
Potato, peeled and chopped into bite sized bits.
Good chicken stock (knorr or chicken oxo!!!)
Mushrooms – optional.
gravy browning – optional.
Gently fry the onion, carrots and leeks in a little olive oil. When the onions are almost cooked remove the veg mix from the pan and set asside.
Coat the chicken in the seasoned flour, shake off any excess. Fry gently to colour the meat.
Transfer to an oven proof dish. Add the veg. Add the potatoes. Add stock. Mix well.
Cover and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Check the seasoning and adjust if needed.
Add gravy browning if needed.
Add mushroom. Add Peas. Mix well.
Cook for 1/2 hour.
Serve in a bowl.
To bulk it out a bit add dumpling or cobblers….
4oz self raising flour
pinch of salt.
dribble of water to bind.
Mix together (start with a table knife then use your hands) to form a dough be gentle with the mix or they will be like concrete!
Divide the mix in to golf ball size balls
Add to the pot when you add the peas and mushrooms.
Submerge the dough balls for dumplings – they come our all soft and warm
Sit them on the top for cobblers – they have soggy bottoms and crispy tops!
