Pulled chicken chilli

I came across this recipe for Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chilli on Facebook, where it was being demonstrated in one of those brilliant, quick cooking videos. I tracked it down to a website called Skinny Taste and gave it a whirl. After all, with all those delicious ingredients, it had to be pretty tasty!

Chicken, tarrogan, and leek pie

This pie is AMAZING. Honestly, it’s one of the most delicious, hearty, warming, indulgent, creamy, flavoursome pies in the world. I can say that because it’s not my recipe – it’s by the amazingly talented (and incredibly lovely) Laura Pope, who wrote it for those nice people at Comte cheese.

Moroccan Chicken

This is a quick and simple recipe that I roll out when I have people round for dinner after work – the slight spice of the chicken works well with the sweet carb-aliciousness of the sweet potato, balancing this light, tasty dish.
