    you can make shepards pie with chunks of lamb coated in flour then browned in a little oil then cooked slowly off in a lamb gravy with onions and carrots ,then top with mash andwhen you want to eat it just heat in the oven

    Piri Piri Chicken - takes 30 min, plus marinating. Serves 4
    Ingredients:
    • 2 red chillies
      1 red pepper
      3 tbsp red wine vinegar
      4 tbsp olive oil
      4 boneless chicken breasts - it says skin on but I never do)
      salad leaves to serve

    This is what the recipe says;

    1) Halve and seed the chillies and red pepper. Chop the chillies finely and the pepper roughly. Tip into food processor and add the vinegar and oil, and season. Whizz, but leave chunky.

    2) Slash the chicken breasts across the skin side and put in a shallow ovenproof dish. Pour over three-quarters of the marinade, turning the chicken to coat it. Marinate for at least 10 minutes, or overnight in the fridge if you have time. Reserve the remaining marinade.

    3) Heat a griddle or heavy frying pan, add the chicken and cook for 5 - 6 mins each side, turning once. Serve on a bed of salad leaves with the reserved marinade drizzled over.

    . . . . and this is how I do it!;

    1) Halve and seed the chillies and red pepper. Tip them into the food processor and add the red wine vinegar and olive oil. Blend to a medium/smooth puree consistency.

    2) Cut the chicken breasts into strips or chunks and marinate in the sauce, 10 mins as suggested at least.

    3) Heat wok or frying pan. Add the chicken but keep some of the sauce back. It tends to 'evaporate' easily in a hot pan so keep adding a bit so that it doesn't stick to the pan. I usually add all of the sauce, I don't add any after.

    Serve with accompaniment of your choice. It's good on a bed of salad leaves and with a jacket spud or potato wedges.

    The fritters are really easy....
    Peel the poatoes and boil as you would mash
    Cook bacon, which I do in a frying pan
    Then mash up the potatoes and add the bacon to it cut into small pieces then add a chopped onion. I then add a sprinkle of pepper.
    Roll into four balls, then squish them down a little bit and fry with a little bit of oil.
    DELICIOUS!! :D And we have ours with a bin of baked beans!! :D

    i just use a basic flour batter
    1egg
    5 tablespoons of water
    5 tablespoons flour
    pinch of salt, combine it all in a bowl (you can add sesame seeds about a tablesppon) and mix till its smooth, cut the chicken breast into small peices , rinse them and pat dry , add to the batter and fry off in batches in a light vege or nut oil, this does about 4 chicken breasts,

    the wedges
    cut poatatos in half lengtways then slice into 6-8 wedges each half you dont want the thick side too thick, seaon with salt and pepper ( you can use cayanne peeper or paprikka if you like) coat baking tray with fry light oil spray (or something similar ) lay put wegdes in rows and drizzle with a light vege or nut oil using a paper towel or pastry brush to make sure they are coated in the oil, bake at 180 degrees C for 40 min or till golden and cooked through
