Hello and welcome to my blog. Today’s post is about how I marinade and cook my chicken.
Making of the chicken
To clean my chicken I use lemon and ensure I take off any unwanted extra fat or hard bit on the legs.
The mixtress mixes spices too
I usually mix my own spices to marinade the chicken. It is only recently I have started adding other cudes and powdered spices. I usually crate onions, garlic and ginger. I then melt 2 knorr and let it cool. Adding a bit lemon and chilli powder as well.
Onions, ginger and garlic
When the spice meet the spice
I let this stay as is for a while while I do something else or due to laziness just leave it there for a while. I then eventually place it in the oven to slow cook for about 2 hours at 100 °C. Ensure you regulate the temperature or cook it longer.
Melted knorr cubes
I use 2 to 3 of this cubes depending on how many chicken I am cooking.
Some more seasoning. Not ideal I know. The aim to ensure you know what you are putting in your food.
Mix it all together. I squeezed a bit of lemon on it too
I put this on a foil and then put it in the oven to bake or cook whatever you want to call it. I use a foil all the time as I feel it better that way healthwise. Let me know if this is how you cook yours.
This is how it looks after 1.5 to 2 hours. I cut parts of it so that the marinade will go on the inside.
You can now have this however you want it. With couscous, salad, rice potatoes or by itself.
Until next time, happy cooking.
Hello and welcome to my blog. As you may have noticed I have not been posting about my lunch meals lately. I will be doing this on a weekly basis just to ensure that the post is properly prepared. For now let’s call it The week in review.
For Monday I had potatoes, vegetables and lamb with gravy
On Tuesday I had mix vegetables with couscous and chicken Nando’s lemon and herb sauce
Wednesdays lunch was star shaped sweet potatoes with mixed vegetables and chicken
On Thursday I wanted to have couscous but turns out the cous cous had gone off due to the heat. Preservation issues. So I had vegetables and lamb.
Friday was mix vegetable brown rice and chicken with chilli sauce
I bought organic chicken this time because the free range available was to be on display till Monday. I noticed the taste was slightly different. It was really delicious. Might be due to how I cooked it.
As you can see I am trying to incorporate vegetable at every given chance. I am very strict about having a balance diet while ensuring that I have enough carbs and protein to maintain my weight.
In addition to this I have morning fruits thereby having all the nutrition I could possibly have. So I am basically having more than five a day.
I would also like to invest in a juicer. A good one is very expensive so I am going to save up for that.
Until next time, eat well and you will feel better.
Hello and welcome to my blog. You may have seen this already in my past lunch meal shares. I do not mind repeating. This is easy to make and its healthy.
We have free range chicken, brussle sprouts carrot and broccoli.
Until next time it’s bon appettit.
Hello and welcome, today i will reveal the meals i took to work. I usually take my breakfast with me to work so i can relax and enjoy it rather than rush as it takes me up to 1 hour driving to get to work.
This is how my breakfast looked like
I made rice pudding for breakfast today. I just let the rice cook till it softens and ensure theres enough of the water in it
I put some of the rice pudding in my 500ml flask to keep warm. I add cinnamon and linwood’s milled Organic flaxeed. I added 1.50 of teaspoon of brown sugar instead of honey. I also added evaporated and fresh organic whole milk.
I add this to my breakfast to enable me to maintain a healthy weight. Teo free range large eggs and two sausages
I am a bit thin so i eat two boiled free range eggs and two sausages to maintain my weight. I am not on a diet, i am built this way.
A year ago i went to Australia and tasted the most amazing chicken sausage ever. I have not been able to find this in the UK. I bought a pack of chicken sausage from asda and they were very tiny. I am currently on the hunt for chicken sausage.
My lunch looks something like this
Jollof rice, salmon, mix vegetables and chilli
Free range milk yogurt with cinnamon and blueberries. I didnt add honey this time round.
I believe this is it. Sometime i have a bread as well. I switch up my breakfast as well. I usually have weetabix, oats or rice pudding.
Until next time bon appetit.
I wash the lettuce and tomatoes in water with apple cider vinegar to get rid of any pesticides and anything that needs to be washed off. I got this idea from The Clear Skin Diet Book.
Wholemeal brown burger bread
Asda Quarter pounder minted lamb
Asda oven baked chips
A sprinkle of Nandos peri peri chips salt
I usually pack everything i will need into my lunch bag.
I will then warm the burger meat and chips and then set it up.
I opted for the brown bread because it is high in fiber thereby helping my digestive system digest any food i have eaten a lot quicker.
I usually make everything in the morning unless it’s rice which i cook in bulk and put it in the fridge. I also make my breatfast fresh in the morning.
Until next time bon appettit
