How about some chicken kebab type thingies? Marinate chunks of chicken in a nice sauce (Nandos do some that aren't to spicy - or make Tassis BBQ sauce. Then thread on skewers with something like chunks of peppers, onion, mushrooms, corn chunks etc. Grill for about 15-20 minutes and serve with warm pitta breads & salad.
Blimey, I found it - you would have to be well acquainted with the state of my house and my brain to know quite how remarkable that is (esp as it wasn't Fam Circle, it was local paper and is a yellowed scrap filed in my Sainsburys file )
ROAST LEMON CHICKEN AND POTATO WEDGES
(as you're doing spuds anyway you could leave them out or substitute another veg?)
500g floury potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges
6 boneless chicken breasts with skin
1 small red onion cut into wedges (I used more, I love red onion)
1 large lemon
6 cloves garlic, peeled
2tsp clear honey
1½tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1tsp fresh thyme
6 sprigs fresh rosemary
Using a nonstick frying pan, dry-fry the chicken breasts skin side down for 2-3 mins until brown. Place in large roasting tin with onion and potato wedges.
Remove zest from lemon and cut in half. Cut one half into wedges and add to pan with 4 garlic cloves; squeeze juice from other half and mix with zest, honey, oil and 2 crushed garlic cloves. Pour over chicken, season well and add herbs.
Bake for 1 hour or until the wedges are tender and the chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately from roasting tin.
It doesn't give a temp but I did it at around 190 I think. It's very good (and easy!)
I was going to suggest Chicken tagine with preserved lemons.
Actually, recipe below looks yummy and quite similar, so if you can replace lemon zest and juice with whole preserved lemons (from sainsburys) cut in chunks + gren olives added at the last minute + chopped coriander.
For meatballs try the following:
blend 1 pound lamb mince with 1 onion + 1 teaspon cumin, 1 teaspoon paprika, 2 cloves garlic, 1 bunch parsley and 1 bunch coriander.
cook meatbals in 1 tin chopped tomatoes and 2 tablespoons good olive oil.Eat with loaf of crusty bread.
