Chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and Marsala sauce | Hello! Hooray!

Chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and Marsala sauce

One night last week, we had a few ingredients that needed using up – so I googled ‘chicken and mascarpone recipe’ and found this one for chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and marsala sauce. We adapted it from the original recipe (click here to see that) so that it was just enough for two. We didn’t quite have all the original ingredients either, but our adapted version was really delicious! And it hardly took any time at all, so I’m sure we’ll be making this on a weeknight again soon.Β  Read More

Pesto chicken with roasted vegetables

 

Finding really tasty but healthy meals can often be tricky. I found ‘The Diet for Food Lovers’ in a bargain bin in TKMaxx, and it’s a fantastic book full of delicious recipes that don’t make you feel like you’re scrimping on flavour! This recipe is fast becoming one of our favourites – if you’re not home too late then you can easily make it on a weeknight, which is always useful. If you don’t use all of the pesto it keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days, so it’s good for another meal too! Continue reading…

Creamy chicken, squash and sage pasta bake

This recipe started out as squash, ricotta and sage pasta bake – a recipe I found on the BBC Good Food website. I thought this sounded really tasty, but the comments at the bottom of the page were pretty mixed and many people had added their own ingredients! So I’ve done that, but a bit more radically I suppose! You could leave out the chicken for a veggie dish. This serves 4 people. Continue reading…

Chicken with Tomatoes and Peppers

20130207-200122.jpg

Another of the new recipes that we have tried out this week is Nigella Lawson’s Chicken with Tomatoes and Peppers. This is a super easy recipe to make and it’s really tasty, and you could cook it on a school night which is always great! I also think that leftovers would make an excellent lunch too, or just pop it in the freezer for another day. We served this with orzo pasta, but it would go well with green veg or some crusty bread.
