One of my favourites is Apricot Chicken

1.5kgs chicken legs
flour
French onion soup mix (dry)
large can of apricot nectar

Roll chicken in flour, put in large baking dish. Mix nectar and soup mix and pour over chicken. Bake at 200 for an hour or til chicken is cooked. Serve with rice. So yummy & easy and the kids love it .

We eat a lot of chicken - probably more than any other meat!

* Chicken curry - tom based Indian
- coconut milk more kormas style creamy indian
-Thai green curry
* Peanut satay chicken (either with the meat grilled seperately and the sauce on top or as a stir-fry all mixed up with veg etc)
* Pesto chicken
* Stir frys - all sorts of different, homemade or packet sauce
* Chicken fried rice
* roast chicken
* homemade nuggets or gorgons(sp)
* Moroccan style chicken cous cous with veg, apricots, cashew nuts etc and Moroccan seasoning
8 did I mention curry :wink: :giggle:

Hope that's given you some ideas!

I would make "marylands" with chicken fillets, by coating them in egg and then breadcrumbs and oven-cooking or grilling them. Adding spices or seasonings to the breadcrumbs first makes them more yummy!

For homemade, healthier chicken nuggets, whizz up a couple of chicken fillets, a chopped carrot, small chopped onion and chopped, peeled apple, add seasoning and breadcrumbs or flour and egg to help bind them, make into nugget shapes and coat in more breadcrumbs before frying. You can also make chicken burgers and meatballs this way, but you dont need to coat them in breadcrumbs. You could also use half chicken/half pork to make jucier burgers.

Chicken legs ae really cheap in our butchers shop and I'd coat them in some kinda sauce (sweet chilli, tomato, BBQ, reggae reggae sauce, honey and mustard, garlic and herbs - the list is practically endless!) before just popping them in the oven for about 40mins or until well-cooked.

My DH hates bones in meat so I dont get to make chicken wings or drumsticks as often as I like, but they're cheap and tasty, and fun to eat. Try the sauces I've listed above.

Chicken livers are apparently pretty tasy, although Ive never tried them! I have a recipe for chicken liver risotto if you'd like it?

Fave is a whole chicken (1.8kg) in the slow cooker.

25g butter
60ml olive oil
60ml white wine
4 cloves garlic, 1 whole, 3 chopped
1 lemon, quartered
handful of chopped parsley.

Shove the lemon and whole garlic inside the chicken. Heat oil and butter together and brown chicken before placing in the slow cooker. Turn off the heat and add the garlic, parsley and win. Mix well then pour over the chicken and cook on high for 5hrs.

We usually have the chicken with mash and veg and gravy the first night, then stir fry the next night, fahjitas the next, and creamy chicken pasta for a final night. Very good value for money and the chicken comes out sooooo tender the bones just fall out!

We have just made chicken kebabs. You can do them under the grill, but we did them on the bbq. We made a marinade with fresh coriander, raw garlic, lime juice and olive oil. We used cubed chicken breast, but thigh meat would work as well. Leave in the marinade for a couple of hours and then put on skewers with veg and grill until cooked.

I could live of chicken :giggle: may favs are
chicken in marmalade which is just that, chicken in an oven bag, marinade for as long as possible in half a jar or marmalade then cook in the oven, we have with wild rice
or as above but use honey for sticky chicken, I part cook in the bag or covered dish then uncover for the last while to make the honey sticky

I really fancy chicken kebabs now, might go get some out and send DH for pitas when he gets in x
