Chicken Curry (chip shop style)

So many of you asked me for a simple and quick chicken curry, this is one of two I made. This one is for those who love to cook but want something quick. This one uses almost the same base as the Basic Chicken Curry Recipe, the addition of a few extra herbs and spices […]

Mexican-Chicken

Mexican Chicken filled Baked Sweet Potato – Gluten Free

This is another amazing dinner made from a simple paste that can be made in minutes. There is no oil, salt (optional stock cube), sugar or flour added. In fact it is made from mostly blended vegetables. Change the chicken to any fish or prawns if you prefer. You can also use your favorite veggies […]

20170221_184857

Thai Pork Meatballs in a Rich Curry Sauce

Someone sent me a message last week asking what she could do with pork mince. It was then that I came up with this dish. While living in China I seen this weird dish, it looked like a watery soup with loads of spices and fishballs floating in it. It turned out this is one […]

20160821_000009

Low Fat Mustard Chicken

This amazing dish was seriously tasty, the flavours were out of this world. It is a low fat dish as it uses creme fraiche rather than cream. Try use chicken breasts on the bone as they really do give the dish a far better flavour. If you can’t get them or they are too pricey […]

20180518_163724-1000x562

Chicken, Cheddar & Spring Onion Sandwich Spread

As many of you know I’m a big cheese fan so you won’t be surprised to know this is one of my favourites. I prefer it with mayonnaise but made this one with creme fraishe. You can use either, I’ll include each in the recipe. This goes great with in wrap, sandwich or on an […]

IMG_1673b

Peppered Steak Puff Pastry Slice

This really popular dish is great for a quick Sunday Lunch, make one large one  by cutting the pastry lengthwise then portion at the dinner table  or make them smaller and have for a midweek lunch. VEGETARIANS can change the steak for roasted peppers, spring onion and mushrooms and also swap the beef stock with […]

20150703_212s254

Crispy & Sticky Sesame Chilli Chicken

It’s as if you have a high class chinese restaurant in your home! All I can say, is you have to make this now, it is an amazing dish and like all my recipes it is dead easy to make.I am thoroughly enjoying the one I made that you see in the pictures as I […]

20150729_010319

Honey Roasted Duck

Succulent Duck with a crispy honey glazed skin cooked to perfection is great in so many recipes. My personal favourite are the many Asian dishes that can easily be made once you have the Duck roasted. After I post this I will make two dishes out of one Duck, both really simple and extremely tasty. […]

20150819_230229

Beef Lasagna

A good, homemade lasagne is such a warm, hearty dinner. Egg lasagne sheets are a little bit more expensive but taste better and I think they’re worth it. This dish is brilliant for freezing, so you could also double the portions and freeze some for another day.

20160112_160932(1)

Beef Cannelloni

THIS is a pretty simple dish to make and one I am sure you and your family will love. You can finely chop a carrot or two and hide them in the meat sauce or do as I did and use a pepper. The tubes are pretty easy to fill if you allow the meat sauce […]

Yuk Sung Recipe

Chinese Yuk Sung Recipe

If you are on a health kick or a diet then Yuk Sung is the dish for you, it is extremely quick to make and very healthy.  Of course it also tastes great. I choose to make it with turkey mince as it was on offer but you can choose minced chicken, prawns or pork […]

20180419_193536-1000x562

Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Pie – gluten free

This is one of those oh so easy dishes to make and another than can be made in bulk and frozen for when needed. The sauce in this is the same sauce as I made for my Chicken Lasagna, in fact I made this at the same time as I made the lasagna which meant […]

FlmXvqlD-nI_Full-1000x562

Homemade Smoked Bacon & Cheese Burgers

This is one of the first recipes I posted and the one dish that is responsible for me posting my recipes online in the first place. Use the cheaper mince with the higher fat content to make them as it make a far nicer  burger than the steak mince with little fat. The fat falls […]

20170227_191236

Tomato Keema Curry – Minced Beef Curry

It isn’t very often you see a curry made with minced beef. Most use lamb, chicken or some sort of seafood and the few that use beef tend to use stewing beef or steak strips. The fact that this Pakistani curry is made with minced beef means that it can be made very quickly and […]

20170215_214430

Beef & Ricotta Meatballs with Tomato Sauce

I never was a fan of meatballs, I found them to be mostly bland and dry when I tried them. I spent a lot of my earlier career working in Italian restaurants and found they were the same even then. So I came up with this recipe while working as head chef in a little restaurant […]

20170331_173554

Beef Shin Casserole in a Thyme Gravy

Beef shin is one of those cheap cuts that needs to be slow cooked to make it tender. Like most cheap cuts like this is full of flavour when cooked especially as there is a lovely marrow bone in the center which adds to the flavour. This is a slow cooker dish but can also […]

20160530_190938(1)

Baked Coconut Chilli Chicken

I usually make this in a deep fat fryer but am trying to be a bit healthier these days so I baked the chicken instead. I prefer it fried but it was still tasty cooked in the oven. I served mine with Asian veggies which were lovely and have always been a personal favourite. Feel […]

20150802_191117

Sage & Onion Stuffing

WE all love a good stuffing, be in in a sandwich or with the Sunday roast. This one is very easy to make and can be made in a matter of a few minutes. I strongly advise making your breadcrumbs if you have a blender or food processor as they are a fraction of the price. […]

20190310_193948

Cheese Stuffed Tex-Mex Chicken Meatballs -Slow Cooker

This is a real child friendly dish so much so I bet this very quickly becomes a firm family favorite for many households around Ireland.  You can choose to leave the chills out if you prefer. This dish can be done in the oven or your slow cooker, I include methods for both in the […]

20180419_232020-1000x562

Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Lasagna

Most of us know traditional lasagna made with minced beef or a vegetarian version. Chicken lasagna is a new one to me as I am sure it is to many of you. I had to cook for a friend who doesn’t eat red meat so I got creative and came up with this new recipe. […]

Pork Fillet Mush and Pepper

Pork Fillet Medallions

You really can make one pork fillet go a long way with this method. It is very easy to do, You can choose to add stock or half cream and half stock or just cream. When serving in restaurants,I made it with cream and a drop of stock. The coating is so good with pork fillet […]

Thai Tom Yum Soup

Tom Yum soup is a sour spicy Thai soup that is full of healthy ingredients and low in fat. It is fairly easy to make though does call for a lot of ingredients. I think it is well worth it as this is one of my favourite Thai dishes to make. Leave the chilli out if […]

Chicken Sundried Tomatoes

Fillet of Chicken with Italian Vegetables and Sundried Tomatoes

This is one of 4 chicken dishes I made from one pack of chicken to show that you can make a different dish for everyone in the house with very little effort. You will find, Breaded Chicken with Ham and Cheese here this was really popular with adults and kids, I must admit, I really enjoyed it […]

20160707_193820

Mauritian Teeka Tropical Chicken Curry

I made this using a spice blend made by a friend of mine who started a little company making a lovely little range of spice blends. He lists a wide range of ingredients on the packet, few of which I had, so I made my own version from what I had in the house. I […]

20150802_g213707

The Perfect Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken is one of those dishes that almost everyone loves. You can easily pick a chicken up for under €5 in any supermarket or butcher these days. This is great for a Sunday roast though just as good as a midweek meal. It is also great for sandwiches or remove the meat and add […]

20150818_204822

Tagliatelle Carbonara

CARBONARA is easily the most popular pasta dish in the world. I have seen it served from Ireland, to Germany, Australia and even in Hong Kong. Unfortunately most restaurants and chefs haven’t got a clue how to make a proper one. Being a big bacon and cheese lover I really love a good carbonara when made […]

20170320_203049

Mushroom, Roasted Garlic, Smoked Pancetta & Parmesan Soup

I came up with this while laying in bed struggling to sleep one night. I was so intrigued by the idea I had to make it straight away, so I went down to my kitchen at 2am to make it. I am really happy that I did as the end result was a fantastic soup […]

20150615_225111

Chinese BBQ Pork Belly Ribs

These are the most popular dish I have ever served on any menu. They take some time to make, but this is what slow cookers are for. When done right they will be crispy and melt in the mouth delicious on the inside. I served mine with fried rice. To make this simple cook the […]

g

Simple Chilli Con Carne

This is another quick and simple dish to make, perfect for busy mums and dads, as with most of my recipes, it doesn’t cost an awful lot to make either. Pop a bowl of cheesy nachos down on the table with a big bowl of this to share with your family or friends. Serve it […]

Ham & Cheese Potato Cakes

My mum used make the most amazing potato cakes for tea whenever she had some potatoes left over. We all loved them. She used to make them into triangles and pan fry them in butter. I used eat them with nothing but a bit of ketchup and I loved every bite. She inspired me to […]

20160824_191519

Chicken & Chorizo Casserole – Slow Cooker or Oven

Sometimes the best meals are the cheapest to make, especially when it comes to using cheaper cuts of meat like chicken drumsticks and thighs. Any meat cooked on the bone will always have a far better flavour due to the flavour the bones give to the dish when cooking. This is a great one for […]

20180531_192722-1000x562

Thai Chicken Croquettes

These little croquettes are such a simple treat to make. They work as a dinner, with your favourite curry sauce, with a salad or even as a snack with a dip. They are a little time consuming to make but this doesn’t mean they are difficult to make at all, the total opposite in fact. […]

20170322_175435

Kung Pao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken hails from the Szechuan region of china and is a slightly sweet and sour dish with loads of spice. Though you can make it as mild or hot as you like, it really is at it’s best when nice and spicy. Ideally it uses Szechuan or rose peppers rather than black pepper […]

20180621_173543-1000x562

Chicken Biryani

This is a really simple dish that’s packed with flavour. You can use chicken, prawns, lamb or veggies or just use mushroom and peas to make an awesome Pilau to go with any of my curries. You can make this with any rice but basmati is best. I use a rice cooker and highly recommend […]

20160223_203820(3)

Crispy Hoisin Pork Belly

This really simple dish is well worth making, I love the crispiness of the pork belly combined with the hoisin sauce and ginger. Lidl do pork belly strips which is what I used here. They are less than €3 a pack which is great value, they don’t go far when left in strips so cut […]

Foo-Young

Chicken Egg Foo Young

Egg Foo Young is an amazing dish but unfortunately every time I have had it in a Chinese here it has been terrible and more like a bad omelette than a delicious Egg Foo Young should be. I am not a fan of the taste of eggs, I will only eat the yolk usually. This […]

20160625_201019

Chinese Salad & BBQ Pork Belly

Out of all the salads I made for this website over the past couple of weeks this was everyone’s favourite. In fact, some said it was the best dish I have ever made for them. I tend to agree, it’s delicious. It takes a bit of effort and time but it’s well worth it. Change […]

Liam’s Thai Chicken or Fish Curry

I love to make and eat Thai food. It is so fresh and filled with wonderful flavours like ginger, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and loads more. I have covered most of the Thai recipes we all know from a Thai red curry to a Massaman curry and even Tom Yum Soup which is a personal favourite. […]

Leftover Ham Pie

Most us have loads of ham leftover after Christmas. This is a great recipe to use it up and one I am sure the whole family will love.

You can boil a ham to make this as well if you don’t have any leftover. It is well worth the effort.

20160126_214307(3)

Beef Kebabs in Pitta Bread

Most of us love a take away yet they cost a fortune, esp if you have to buy for the whole family. I often make these for friends after we come back from a night on the beer. They are fairly easy to make esp as most of the work is done in advance so […]

Glazed Ham

Baked Glazed Ham

I like to cook my ham on the bone at Christmas. It has a much nicer flavour but you need a fairly large pot to do it. If you do have one large enough, make sure to soak the ham in cold water for 4 hours before cooking. Cook the ham in boiling water for […]

Simple Lamb Shanks (Slow Cooker)

This is a wonderful dish that can be made by anyone, it takes very little work as the oven does most of that, so you can concentrate on other things. I will upload more recipes for Lamb Shanks over time, most more complicated that this simple one.

Mughlai Karahi Gosht – North Indian Lamb Curry

I am sure you are all too familiar with days of being rushed off your feet, barely a minute to spare, being pulled from one drama to the next, the never ending cries of MAMMY or DADDY that on most days melt your heart but on this day melts your brain instead. It’s days like […]

Chicken Ham and Cheese

Breaded Chicken with Ham & Cheese

This Chicken Dish is great for all the family and especially loved by kids. Double coating the chicken in breadcrumbs ensures the cheese doesn’t drip out when cooking.    

creamy pasta

Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Pasta

This is a really simply, quick and tasty dish to make and it’s one that our whole family loves. It’s made with low fat creme fraiche too, so it’s not as calorific as it would be if you used cream. If you’re not concerned with things like carb intake, serve it with home made garlic […]

20151123_200219

Chicken Pakora – Gluten free

This is one for those of you who are on a gluten free diet. It uses Gram Flour instead of plain flour. Gram Flour is made from Chickpeas and can be found in some supermarkets, health food stores and Asian stores. It makes a wonderful starter to any meal but works especially well if planning […]

20160917_194659

Braised Steak in Mushroom Sauce

Comfort food at it’s best. Braised steak is amazing when cooked properly. The meat melts in your mouth and is full of flavour from the mushroom sauce it is braised in. You can make this in your slow cooker or the oven. I made it in the oven but only because I moved and don’t […]

Roast Beef

The Perfect Roast Beef & Roast Gravy

Sunday Roast is one of my favourite meals to cook and nothing says Sunday Roast better than a good joint of Roast Beef I used Rib Roast which is my favourite. I wanted to cook it on the bone but couldn’t get it. If you want a rib roast on the bone speak with your […]

Singapore Noodles

I made this dish for some staff at work once and my sous (second) chef hounded me for the recipe ever since. We met a while back, not long after we published my first book, the first thing he asked me was if the recipe for my Singapore noodles was in the book. He was disappointed to […]

Marinaded Pork Chopc

Marinaded Pork Chops

I choose to serve these with one of my favourite Salads, esp when cooked on the BBQ on a nice summers day. For those days when it’s not so sunny and you crave comfort food then go with Creamy Mash, some nice veg and a bit of Bisto Gravy or a nice Mushroom Sauce goes great […]

Indian Coconut Lamb Curry

As usual this is extremely easy to make especially if you use your slow cooker. You will find Coleman’s mustard powder in most supermarkets apart from Lidl and Aldi.

20150331_213824(0)

Basic Chicken Curry (Chinese style)

If you are a chinese curry fan then this one is for you. The one you get in most chinese take aways is from a packet with artificial flavouring so its not exactly the same but very close and in my opinion far better. It’s also way cheaper, so instead of paying €4 for a […]
