A few Recipe Clips...

Have been a tad slack with this Blog now that the girls & I have discovered You Tube... No excuse really...
We have made a few Cooking clips... Hope you like them...

Lemon & Dill Chook...

2 Chicken breasts, Diced
Marinade for Chook...

1/3 cup chopped Dill
Juice of 1 large or 2 small Lemons
Dessert spoon of Garlic
- Place all Ingredients into dish, mix well then let stand for 10-30 min  

1 Medium Purple Eggplant, chopped roughly
½ a Red Capsicum, chopped roughly
1 Med Zucchini, chopped roughly
1 large Kohlrabi, sliced into fingers.. (Green tops  would of been used as well but were a tad wilted from a night in the fridge.. )
2 Shallots, Whites chopped into 2cm sections & greens sliced thinly for garnish...
About 1 small head of Broccoli, divided into small trees
Handful of Bush Beans, cut into thirds

- Add Tbsp of oil to pan/wok, heat then fry off chook mixture in batches then set aside
- Add another Tbsp of oil & heat 
- Add Shallots, Eggplant, Capsicum, Zucchini, Kohlrabi & fry for a few minutes
- Add in Beans, Broccoli & Chicken with a bit of water to help the veggies steam if needed (I use the Grilling plate from the convection Microwave as a lid to help the steaming process)
- Garnish with Shallots Greens & extra fresh Dill..
Would be nice served with steamed rice me thinks....

Medium sized Red Capsicum, diced large
1 medium Onion, chopped
400g Tin diced Tomatoes, liquid reserved in a bowl for later
400ml tin of Lite Coconut cream
1 dessert spoon Curry powder (2 would of been better but the Spawn don’t like too much spice)
2 medium Sweet Potatoes, chopped roughly1 medium Onion, chopped in half then sliced thinly
3 Green Thai Eggplants
¾ cup of Sultanas
 Large handful of Bush Beans, chopped into ¼’s
1 cup frozen Peas

 -  Add oil to pot & heat

Add Chicken then stir while cooking for a minute or so
- Add diced Tomatoes, Coconut cream,  Curry powder & reserved Tomato juice if needed (depends on amounts of other ingredients used as to if extra liquid is needed)

- Add Extra liquid at this stage as well if needed... You could add water, Tomato juice or Liquid (stock) form poaching chicken
- Add Sultanas & more liquid if needed keeping in mind that the Sultanas will absorb liquid
