Garlic Prawn Pasta

garlicprawnpasta
This pasta dish is a Donna Hay recipe and is super quick and simple. The best part is you cook with spaghetti and the prawns cook whilst the spaghetti cooks so it’s basically ready in about 10 minutes. The worst part is peeling the prawns but hopefully you have somebody to delegate that too. I’ve made this a couple of times and it can be dry if you cook too much spaghetti so have extra olive oil or lemon juice at the ready.

Fried rice

Mastering rice without a rice cooker is somewhat difficult. This dish is a combination of Thai & Indonesian Fried Rice as I didn’t have all the ingredients for either. For me, that’s what cooking is all about. Experimenting and taking bits of pieces from various dishes to make your own. You’ll be surprised with what you can create without following a recipe exactly and often it will even be better than what you were meant to make.

Chicken nuggets

It’s hard to call this a dish but nevertheless I can guarantee they will be popular with your kids and your big kids too. The dipping sauces are mayo with basil pesto, mustard and sweet chilli. The nuggets are simply chicken breasts cut into small pieces, dipped into a batter, and deep fried for 3-4 minutes. Leave to cool a little then enjoy.

Be careful not to cut the chicken too small as they will fall apart when deep fried.

Satay chicken skewers & noodle salad

chicken satay

This recipe is straight out of Jamie’s 30 minute meals so there isn’t much to say except it’s obviously going to taste amazing, should be relatively easy to make and will definitely take longer than 30 minutes. The satay compliments the freshness of the noodle salad nicely. I made¬†extra satay which was a bonus so I would recommend doing the same.
