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

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…

GINGER SESAME CHICKEN

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…

So, here you have it… one of the most popular Indian dishes in the world.  It is so famous that it has been declared one of the UK’s national dishes!  I did some digging and from what I have gathered, it is more of a restaurant-born dish than a traditional Indian dish (unlike its close…

CHICKEN SALAD

I must admit that I had my very first chicken salad when I visited the USA in 1997.  Yes… quite late in life (well, I am not THAT old, but the point is, it is not a dish I grew up eating!).  I am not sure why, but it is not something my family would…

Chicken liver parcels

CHICKEN LIVER PARCELS

While growing up I never enjoyed eating liver… with one exception: chicken liver.  I do not know why, but it may have been because they taste milder and are less bitter than other liver.  Anyhow, there are 2 dishes made with chicken liver that I have always LOVED and I am going to share one…
