Chicken and Black Bean Chowder

Soups, stews and chowders are the perfect winter food, although I love them all year round. Here’s an easy chowder recipe that I’ve been using as a main dish. It’s hearty enough to leave you satisfied on its own, but you could always add a slice of bread, or the tortillas that the recipe mentions. … Continue reading Chicken and Black Bean Chowder

Chicken and Vegetable Pie with an Amazing Duck Fat Crust

I’m really proud of this recipe – it turned out perfectly! My goal was to create a savoury pie crust using duck fat, and this one ended up being so perfectly flakey and flavourful. And the chicken and vegetable filling was super tasty as well. I used half butter, half duck fat for the crust, … Continue reading Chicken and Vegetable Pie with an Amazing Duck Fat Crust

Roasted Chicken and Vegetables in a Clay Baker

I’ve roasted a chicken many times in a clay baker, and have posted the recipes a few times. Romertopf roasted chicken remains one of the most popular recipes on my blog.

Chicken and Vegetable Tagine

A few months ago I made some preserved lemons , knowing that I would make a tagine one day – some things have to be planned ahead!

The recipe I … Continue reading Chicken and Vegetable Tagine

You could substitute chicken to make this if you don’t happen to have duck. This recipe is as … Continue reading Duck Broth (or Chicken)

Last weekend I was planning to have friends over for dinner, and I wanted to make a pot of soup and a loaf of bread, so I made up my own version of a Mexican soup. It’s got some chicken, beans, and lots of vegetables including a few kinds of peppers.  I served it with Mexican farm cheese, some … Continue reading Mexican Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Quick and Yummy Chicken and Veg Noodles

This is another old standby, usually with just the broccoli, but I try to add extra veg whenever I can.  It’s comfort-foody, plus it’s pretty easy.  Feel free to switch it up with your favourite veg. I use plain yogurt in this, but you can use sour cream if you prefer. What you need: 1 … Continue reading Quick and Yummy Chicken and Veg Noodles

It’s not too hard to make, and it’s full of flavour.  I’ve adapted a recipe for veal stew from a Western Living cookbook to make this.  Oh, and it’s so tasty if you use homemade stock … Continue reading Fantastic Chicken Stew
