Chicken Karaage

Chicken Karaage

  Chicken Karaage is a classic Japanese fried chicken dish. It’s so popular in Japan that you can find it in all izakaya, depachika, supermarkets and street food stalls. In fact, we had quite a bit of Karaage during our Japanese holiday. One of my most vivid memories of our trip is eating Karaage under…

Beer braised Chicken Tenders

Beer Braised Chicken Tenders

I always have chicken tenders in the freezer.  Chicken is what my kids like to eat the most and tenders are very handy as they are very versatile and cook quite fast.  The other day I had some beer in the fridge that begged to be used, so I whipped up a quick and delicious…

This weekend is all about Super Bowl food, so if you are like me and LOVE the kind of food that is served for such sporting events, you are in for a big treat!  As you know, I don’t follow football and not living in the USA, also means no Super Bowl… but Italians are…

Chicken Spring Rolls

Chicken Spring Rolls

The other day, I decided to make Chicken Spring Rolls at home.  I love spring rolls, but I often find them quite greasy and oily.  That’s because they are not fried correctly, so they become soggy and absorb too much oil.  This home-made version is so much better.  They come out crunchy and not oily…

Pomegranate Chicken Wings

Pomegranate Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are among my favourite appetisers or party food.  They can be made in so many different ways and they always taste delicious.  I love mine baked, but because I coat them in a little bit of flour and bake them for a long time, the skin becomes as crunchy as if they were fried, sans…

Yakitori

Lately I have been on a  bit of a Japanese food bender.  I am discovering more and more dishes, and the more I discover, the more I love Japanese cuisine!  There’s so much more than sushi (which I love too!).  I had heard a lot about Yakitori – 焼き鳥, but I had never eaten them…

Chicken Involtini with Prosciutto and Fontina

Chicken Involtini with Prosciutto and Fontina

Chicken is definitely the kind of meat we eat the most.  My children like it more than any other meat and even though I have always preferred beef, I now enjoy it too.  Being that we eat chicken often, I am always looking for different ways to serve it, so it doesn’t get too boring. …

Chicken and Sun dried Tomato Rolls #FridgeShelfies

Last week I blogged about PHILADELPHIA #FridgeShelfies, a campaign that wants to inspire Aussies to get more creative in the kitchen, with new and exciting recipes developed using the ingredients already in their fridges.  I immediately loved the concept because, let’s face it, that’s what we have to do everyday.  We open the fridge and…

Maple and Sriracha Chicken Wings #SundaySupper

Today’s post is all about “man food”.  In honour of Father’s Day, this week’s Sunday Supper event is about recipes for food that men love to eat.  To tell you the truth, it’s not Father’s Day here in Australia (we celebrate it in September), nor it is Father’s Day in Italy (that’s on June 19th –…

Maftoul with Chicken

The May Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by the incomparable Sawsan from Chef in Disguise. Sawsan challenged us to try our hands (literally!) at making maftoul – hand-rolled Palestinian couscous that is as versatile as it is tasty! Wow was the only word that I could utter when I saw this month’s challenge!  I love Sawsan’s…

Margarita Chicken Wings

Margarita Chicken Wings

In the recent couple of years I have come to LOVE eating chicken wings.  They are really not something Italians eat a lot of.  I mean, we do eat them when we cook a whole chicken and we use them a lot to make chicken broth, but they are not an appetiser kind of food…

I always have chicken tenders in my freezer… they are very versatile, quick to cook and they always please the whole family.  I love the fact that they are always moist and not dry.  I have never seen these in Italy, where you either buy breast or thighs (or the whole chicken).  I stumbled upon…
