ooh lots of goodies here

cd I hasve not a decent greek salad recipe and how do you do the chick legs

CountessDracula Mon 09-Jul-07 13:12:40

marinade chicken breast chunks in soy sauce, vinegar, worcestershire sauce, honey and tabasco and a bit of olive oil

Fry up and serve on salad with avocado

codJane Mon 09-Jul-07 13:12:41


Bbq chicken

For the marinade
3 garlic cloves, crushed
6 tbsp tomato purée
4 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp dark brown sugar
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1-2 tbsp Tabasco sauce
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp smoked sweet paprika
1 tbsp chilli powder
olive oil, to drizzle
8 free-range chicken legs, trimmed of excess fat

1 In a bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients. Spread over the chicken and leave to marinate for at least an hour or overnight.

2 Scrape off any excess marinade from the chicken pieces and drizzle with a little olive oil. Place on a hot barbecue or grill and cook for about 25 minutes, turning occasionally. When browned, brush the chicken with the marinade and cook for another 10-15 minutes, turning and basting frequently, until cooked through. To test if the meat is done, insert a small knife into the thickest part of a chicken leg – the meat should no longer be pink at the bone.

If you want to cook this in the oven, bake the chicken legs at 200C/Gas 6 for 30-40 minutes until cooked. Baste with the marinade 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.

Spanish omlette made with v healthy summer veg

Homemade pizza piled with v healthy summer veg

Sausages and roasted v healthy summer veg

ALSO - Somebody posted a recipe for chickpea curry on a thread like this a while back (I think it was your veggie recipe thread, enid - do you not have any cookbooks?). I made it and it was delish, then with stunning efficiency, I put the recipe through the washing machine. If anyone remembers what the recipe was, I'd be v grateful for a reminder.
