Roasted pesto chicken and harvest grape salad

Just around the corner from my place on the Otago peninsula is a lovely little awning tied to a tree which shelters two large chilly bins and a cardboard box.  Every day the owner of the property behind lovingly fills the bins with a variety of her beautiful organic produce and homemade preserves and leaves [...]

Chicken salad

Vegan food is not something that comes naturally to me (how do you milk an almond???). My exposure to it was certainly limited growing up in Hamilton, one of the livestock capitals of the world. But a vegetarian flatmate and the lunch special at the Curry Pot (Naan, rice, raita, a chicken curry and a [...]

Genevieve’s chicken and creamed corn soup

Being Samoan Chinese and living in Samoa eating chicken cream corn soup is a given for our family. Always eaten during Sunday tonai (lunch feast) as an appetizer along with Oka (see my post here) it is one of the many Chinese dishes I was taught to cook before heading off to university.

Sick Day Chicken Soup

This story begins a couple of weeks ago when my youngest little pixie girl Sami came down with a hideous virus which literally lay her down flat and completely exhausted for an entire week.  I knew the virus must have been extreme because as any mother of a 20 month old child will know, as [...]

USA and Buffalo wings

Buffalo wings are on the menu of just about any casual American eatery and by the end of our 3 week American vacation I gave up trying to convince myself that I didn’t like them

Chicken breast with mushroom and chestnut stuffing

Heading into the chillier days life as a chestnut would have to be pretty swell.  Happily nestled into a cosy little pod lined with silky fur with the protection of a magnitude of needle like spikes to ward off any hungry creatures.

Spicy chicken wings with chipotle & lime sauce

The weather is warming up here in Aotearoa which means barbecue season is upon us. After 17 years barbecuing (taken from my thirteenth birthday where I was gifted my first barbecue) I’m looking for something different, interesting and a change

Quick-roasted butterflied coconut chicken

I love roast chicken, it’s a perfect meal for any occasion. However despite this love affair that many of us share I’m always looking to improve on perfection. Sweet, salty, sour, spicy and fragrant this bird ticks all the boxes and because it is butterflied it’s quicker to cook than your usual roast chook

This is the second of two recipes intended for our hangi which sadly was rained out.  I had intended to marinate the chicken overnight, then wrapping it in banana leaves before placing it into the hangi baskets to spend the day slowly cooking.  Whilst the rain quashed these plans I decided to resolutely stick to [...]

Chicken sandwiches

It’s a rainy Saturday in New Plymouth and whilst I am lucky enough to be sheltered indoors from the elements, my boyfriend is not quite so fortunate.  Underneath the house, safely tucked away in his mums garage is his beautiful Humber Super Snipe and this weekend has been earmarked to give her a bit of [...]
