Nell’s Coronation Chicken

Nell's Coronation Chicken

With England bowing out in the World Cup’s group stage for the first time since 1958, and Andy Murray’s defence of his Wimbledon title getting underway, it seemed fitting that we go for something Classically British this week. And so we have our first ever Guest Spot at TidyMunch – it’s from Nell, and is her latest take on a familiar favourite from my childhood.

From here on in, most of the words are Nell’s…

Summer of Sport Quesadilla

After holding hosts Brazil to a goalless draw on Tuesday, Mexico have it all to play for when they face Croatia on Monday!

A draw will see them through, but whatever the result of their final group game, why not get into the spirit with this take on the iconic Mexican classic?

It’s tasty and filling, yet light enough for this mini heat-wave we’re enjoying at the moment!

They’re perfect Summer food, and will bring a little sunshine to your day even when the weather doesn’t match!

I served them with Cajun Sweet Potato Chips, but Fiona recommends a nice, fresh greek Salad – can’t fault that plan!

Cajun Sweet Potato Chips

I love sweet potato, so when I was sent this Tesco recipe, I just had to try it!

This is perfect for Barbecue weather, but can also be cooked in the oven. I had them as an accompaniment to Fiona Farley’s Greek Chicken Pitta Pockets, and found that despite the cross-quisine fusion they worked well together as an easy summer evening meal.

Guilt-free King Prawn Saag

IMGP2769Since starting this blog, it’s safe to say I’ve put on a pound or two. Nothing drastic, but I do have a propensity towards the more calorific dishes, and I’m not renowned for willpower or portion control. When trying to perfect recipes, it will probably come as no surprise to hear that I’ve generally eaten each dish twice in the week it featured.

Anybody who knows me personally will know that I’m always weight-conscious. I yo-yo between impressive excess and remarkable restraint. I am a frequenter of fat clubs, and today’s recipe is courtesy of one of them!

People often have the wrong idea of what they consider “diet food”, believing it to be bland and unfulfilling. They may be surprised to find that this King Prawn Saag recipe from Weight Watchers won’t disappoint on either flavour or heat.

If you’re familiar with Weight Watchers’ pro-points system, the entire recipe is only 5 (yes 5) points! If you’re more of a Slimming World kind of person, this would be free on an Extra Easy day.

So crack on! This week it’s guilt-free!
