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.    

Chicken-Meatballs

Chicken Meatballs in a Spicy Peanut sauce with Egg Noodles

This is officially the best dish on biamaith.ie as far as I am concerned, it is amazing, one of my best yet. It is really filling so a little goes a long way and each spoonful is part of your five a day so it not only tastes fantastic it is good for you. I […]

20180518_062304-1000x562

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake

Roast chicken and Broccoli in a rich cheese sauce with your favourite pasta, this is sure to appeal to the majority of families, especially children. It’s fairly easy to make though does have a few elements that will take time. Believe me, its well worth the effort. If roasting a chicken for this dish then […]

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.

Chicken-A-La-King

Chicken ala King (Gluten Free)

This is as tasty as it is quick to make. It is perfect for busy mums and dads who don’t have a lot of time to cook in the evenings. My mum used make it all the time after my brother, who was also a chef, thought it to her. I think it was her […]

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.

20150629_205930

Spicy Lamb Koftas

These Turkish Skewer Lamb Mince Kebabs can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. They are great for the BBQ, party or even a family dinner. They are also great for a packed lunch as they can be taken off the skewers and served with a nice dip or even ketchup if that is […]

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 […]

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. […]

20180427_215216-1000x562

Coconut, Ginger & Chilli Soup with Grilled Chicken & Prawn

It is hard to believe that a soup like the one here can be made in a matter of minutes with zero cooking skills or experience required. This is definately the case here. All you need is a food processor or if you want to you can even use a store bought curry paste like […]

Chicken-mince-stir-fry

Chicken Stir Fry with Oyster Sauce and Chilli

This is a dish for broke days, days when you don’t have much time to cook or even the days you want something really tasty that won’t leave you feeling bloated. I really enjoyed this dish and I felt great after eating it. It is full of goodness with all the veggies it contains. Make […]

Beef Goulash Soup Recipe

Hearty Beef Goulash Soup

This is a really hearty soup that’s cheap to make and that can be thrown together in a few minutes. It’s perfect for a cold winter’s day or even a school or work lunch.  

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 […]

20160825_193606

Pork, Chicken or Steak Fajitas

This is a great recipe as 2 pork chops will feed a family of 4. You can use more if you like but it really isn’t needed. You can also use chicken breasts or steak strips if you prefer or use more veggies to make it a vegetarian dish. You can buy spice mixes in […]

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 […]

20180105_205540-1000x562

Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Gravy – GF

We all love fried chicken especially when it is juicy on the inside with a deliscious crisp coating. For many it can be difficult to get it right and so they end up with tough dry chicken. Brining the meat before cooking helps prevent the chicken frying out when cooking and so you end up […]

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 […]

20150809_183623

Beef Curry (slow cooker)

This curry has chunks of melt in the mouth beef in a rich homemade curry sauce that’s bursting with flavour. It can be put together in a few minutes then left to simmer away in the slow cooker or a pot on the stove. I tried to make this using as few ingredients as possible […]

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 […]

20160105_002846(0)(1)

Chicken Jalfrezi

I really love a good curry esp a healthy one like this.  Like all of my recipes you will find the ingredients in most supermarkets or stores. This is probably one of the easiest Indian curries you will ever make. To ensure it is gluten free make sure to check the stock cube and spices […]

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 […]

Braising Steak Slow Cooker Recipe

Braised Steak (slow cooker)

I love this dish, to me it is the ultimate comfort food. It’s dead simple to make, simply add all the ingredients to your slow cooker or casserole dish then cook for 4-8 hours depending on what way you choose to cook it. Change the steak to stewing beef and leave the wine out to […]

Chinese Fakeaway

Chicken Burgers with Chilli, Lime & Coriander

I love the flavours of this burger, they are so refreshing and go down a treat with a cold beer on a hot day. Finish them off with a little squeeze of lime juice to give them a zesty kick which goes perfectly with the chilli and coriander. You can choose to serve the chicken […]

Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

A real family favourite and inexpensive to make, great for making in bulk and freezing esp when one of the stores has a good quality mince on offer. You can change the meat to minced pork or lamb. Half pork and half beef mince is also great. You can really make the mince go further […]

20170405_212749

Nasi Goreng

This really popular dish is well worth making. The flavours are fantastic and it is fairly easy to make. It is cheap if you leave the prawns out and use all chicken instead. It makes a great family dinner especially midweek when the pennies can be tight. It will also impress friends and family if […]

IMG_1348t

Pasta Bolognese

Always a family favourite this is far nicer than anything from a jar, it is also way cheaper and far better for you and your family. Remove or add veg to suit your tastes, I used carrots, peppers and mushrooms. Smoked rashers are great in it as well. I choose to make handmade pasta for […]

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 […]

20160429_190811(1)

Chicken Chow Mein

This popular dish is so quick and simple to make yet tastes great, the best bit is it is really healthy and cheap to make. One packet of noodles and a couple of chicken breasts will feed a family of 4. I use 4 chicken breasts in the recipe but use two if money is […]

20160304_222750(1)

Smoky Beef & Chorizo Stew

Is there anything better than a bowl of steaming hot stew on a cold and wet day? This is a twist on a classic beef stew. The smoky flavour from the smoked paprika and spicy chorizo brings the dish to a whole new level, creating a dept of flavour that will leave you wanting seconds […]

20160108_142440(1)

Pad Thai Gluten Free

Pad Thai is probably one of the best known Thai dishes after green and red curries. It is really quick to make and really healthy. It is easy to mess it up so the timing is really important. You should get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking or you will end up with […]

Bord Bia – Roast Lamb with Tapenade & Spring Onions

Sunday lunch in my mums was always such a treat, she loved lamb and so each sunday she used cook a leg of lamb for the family. She always did it the same way, not that we complained as she was a master at bringing out the best flavours in any dish esp a lamb […]

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 […]

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 […]

20151202_212844

Chicken Korma

I am a big fan of a good Indian curry esp a nice korma. I simplified this recipe so that you can easily make it at home with ingredients you can find in most supermarkets. I live in the sticks so if I can get them then anyone can.  Like most of my curry dishes […]

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 […]

20160716_201429

Lamb Burgers with Mint, Tomato & Brie

I used to serve these on a menu while working in a restaurant, they were slow to sell at first but once people began to try them they came back for them again and again. It wasn’t long before they became one of my best sellers on that menu. Lamb burgers are really tasty, the […]

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 […]

20150923_201108

Thai Beef with Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

So many people have asked me to cook this dish. It is one of the easiest stir fries you will ever cook. The end result is a fantastic meal that will cost you so little to make compared with what you would pay in a take away. I used Aldi’s Minute steak strips to make […]

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 […]

20180518_161639-1000x562

Chicken Fajita Sandwich Filler

So many people have gotten in touch asking for lunch recipes, many saying they are tired of the same old things week after week. If you are feeding a family or just yourself it really is worth the effort to make a good lunch. Eating a good lunch to suit your lifestyle will help you […]

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 […]

Southern Fried Chicken

Fried chicken has always been a real family favourite esp with the kids. I love to make a big plate of it then simply stick in in the centre of the table with some big bowls of coleslaw and salad so everyone can dig in and help themselves. I highly recommend getting a food temperature […]

Pot Roast

Pot Roast

A pot roast is one of those things many have heard of but never tried. It is such a shame that it isn’t more popular as it really is amazing and a great way to cook roast cuts that wouldn’t be as tender as the more expensive cuts like Rib or Sirloin. Round roast is […]

20160627_221850

Poached Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

Anyone who knows me knows I’m cheese mad. I love all kinds, especially the amazing selection we have here in Ireland. Cashel Blue is one of my favourite blue cheeses. The combination of flavours here match so well they have to be tried to be believed. This will make a fantastic snack with a good […]

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 […]

20170603_140324

Popcorn Chicken with Lime and Mint Mayo

Here is a brilliant gluten free snack or lunch that’s great to share and the kids will love it. The main batter ingredient is polenta, which is sometimes known as cornmeal. It’s used a great deal in the Mediterranean, and in the states where it’s known as grits. I have found it in larger supermarkets […]

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 […]

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 […]

Poached Chicken Filler

Poached Chicken Fillet

If you want something that is easy to make, healthy and very very tasty then this is the dish for you. I love it with a drizzle of hand pressed olive oil given to me by an Italian friend. I infused the oil with smoked garlic cloves, dried chili and wild rosemary from my own […]

Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Gravy – GF

Ramen with Chicken and Pak Choi

Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup with meat and veggies of various kinds added. It is a great dish as it is healthy and really refreshing. It takes a little more time to make than most other recipes I post but is seriously worth it. Once the chicken stock is made the actual dish doesn’t […]
