Simple Soy and Honey Chicken

honey-soy-chicken

This guaranteed quick and easy Soy and Honey Chicken recipe, by MasterChef’s Monica Galetti, is delicious and a treat for the entire family. We serve the chicken with rice and bok choi, or simply slice the cooked chicken and add it to a noodle and vegetable stir fry.

For a more caramelised – stick-to-your-teeth – sensation, cook the chicken until it’s well done, it’s the best! The cooking process, inspired by her mother, has never let us down.

Ingredients
450g/1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
4 tsp clear honey
4 tsp soy sauce

Optional
1/2 tsp sweet paprika powder (for a subtle smokey flavour)

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix together the honey and soy (and paprika). Add the chicken thighs and completely coat in the marinade
  2. Place the coated chicken thighs into a cold, deep, heavy-based saucepan. Place the plan onto a medium heat on the hob and cook uncovered until the chicken is cooked through and the honey and soy coating has thickened to a glossy glaze (should take about 20-30 mins). We turn the chicken every 10 mins or so until it’s caramelised
  3. Serve

NB: It’s important to start cooking the chicken in a cold pan so the chicken stews as it cooks. If the pan is hot, the honey and soy sauce will caramelise before the meat is cooked through.

Easy Chicken Stir Fry

After a busy day at work one of Elldrew’s favourite meals is this quick and easy chicken, cashew nut and spring onion stir fry. Not based on any celebrity chef’s recipe, requiring only very basic prep and using ingredients usually in our larder, it’s a good standby meal for hungry tummies (that need feeding quickly).

Lemon Chicken Sandwiches

sandwich heavenWe LOVE these sandwiches so much that they need a shout-out. Another fantastic recipe from Aussie food stylist, author and magazine editor Donna Hay (we just renewed our magazine subscription). These little beauties guarantee no leftovers at any party, in fact take the recipe with you as you will be asked to share, we guarantee it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 slices white bread
  • Butter for spreading
  • 2 cups (320g) chopped cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup (225g) whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp shredded mint leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra mayonnaise and finely chopped chives

Place the chicken, mayonnaise, lemon juice, basil, mint, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine. Spread one side of each bread slice with butter. Divide chicken mixture between half the bread slices and top with remaining bread. Cut sandwiches into small triangles and brush one side with the extra mayonnaise. Press the mayonnaise into the chives to serve. Makes 24.

Perfect Paella

yummy paella

Arroz con Pollo y Chorizo is an amazing paella dish that’s not only easy to prepare (it pretty much cooks itself) but it will have your guests begging for more. Unlike risottos, the Spanish have mastered the skill of cooking rice that shouldn’t be stirred – a relief in Planet Elldrew’s eyes considering we lost a wooden spoon, snapped right in half, when once preparing a risotto dish…so save your arms from constant stirring and tuck into this hearty meal which you can feed 6 for under a tenner!

Britain had the dress rehearsal with The Royal Wedding in 2011 so Planet Elldrew are especially looking forward to The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations next weekend. Not just because we get to have 4 days out of the office, but it will be another chance to catch-up with friends and celebrate all things British.
