Crunchy Coconut Chicken Noodles features a velvety coconut sauce infused with zesty lime and a hint of Thai pepper, served over egg noodles alongside shaved carrots, bell peppers, tender chicken, and fresh cilantro, all garnished with a delightful crunchy pistachio topping. Crunchy Coconut Chicken Noodles is highly influenced by Thai cuisine. There are many typical elements, like lemongrass and coconut milk, but no ginger or strong curry. No peanut butter, *Satay, or hoisin sauce either. I really wanted to highlight the coconut flavour, often overpowered by other sauces or ingredients. I also wanted to counterbalance all that coconut sweetness with freshness and no better ingredients than lime and lemongrass! Pistachio Yum I love pistachios! I would put them in every dish if I could! And though I needed some crunch texture to make this Coconut Chicken Noodles dish whole, I’ve used fancy pistachios instead of the obvious peanuts! A pure…

Spicy Chicken Stuffed Peppers is an explosive combo of sweet and spicy chicken, pineapple, onion and a touch of habanero hot peppers baked in a red bell pepper—a fun dish with a fiery, fruity spin. A straightforward recipe that looks good fresh and got this spark some of us dig! This spark is called Habanero chilli peppers, and they go wonderfully with pineapples! This version of Chicken Stuffed Peppers is for adventurous people who like this famous duo of sweet and spicy. Habanero Chilli Peppers Habanero chillies are not for everyone; you need to be brave enough to eat them, but they have this fruit aftertaste, which I believe no other chilli peppers have. The good news here is you can use the pepper in moderation, accompanied by some sweet ingredient (in this case, pineapple), which helps to balance the heat. I use a homemade dehydrated habanero powder, but freshly chopped habanero…

The Light Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Skewers blend two cultures: a Japanese influence featuring teriyaki-marinated chicken and a Hawaiian twist with succulent grilled pineapple pieces. This fusion creates a contrasting and dynamic combo! Light Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Skewers is a variation of what my mom used to make when I was a kid. Back in the day, coming from this small town up north in Canada, the supermarket had no choice of “Asian” ingredients except for the soy sauce. My mom would marinate the chicken simply in soy sauce for an hour, and the pineapple touch would bring a contrasting sweet touch. Low-Sugar Teriyaki Sauce So, in a way, I’ve separated the sugar from the usual Teriyaki sauce and added the pieces of pineapple to balance the savoury of the soy sauce because Asian food is all about the perfect balance! This version is lighter on sugar but high in taste…

They are obviously really hot but also have this undertone of sweetness, which is a lovely combo.…

Avocado Club Sandwich is a no-brainer, the traditional three-layered toasted sandwich with the usual chicken, lettuce, tomato and mayo with extra creamy avocado and slightly cooked cured ham instead of bacon. A twist on the classic Club sandwich, the famous deli favourite from North America. The traditional Club Sandwich has three levels of toasted white bread, chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. This Avocado Club Sandwich version is made by replacing the bacon with a leaner cured ham that is slightly cooked, just enough to make it ultra crispy. Plus, an extra layer of beloved avocado for colour and smoothness is served in whole grain toasted bread, but this is up to you. The Chicken Layer The chicken slices are replaced by a creamy chicken salad mix blended with a touch of mayonnaise, sweet mustard and dill pickle juice (brine) until smooth and extra yummy! An extra half a pickle could also…

Healthy Chicken Florentine is a delicate and ancestral dish from France, a simply grilled chicken breast served on a spinach bed with unctuous Mornay sauce and extra grilled pine nuts to bring in a welcomed nutty and crunch touch. Healthy Chicken Florentine is such a simple and comforting meal. The term florentine is French to say from Florence, Italy. This dish was brought by Italian Catherine de Médicis and her love for spinach over in France when she married Henri II. The dish is usually; a protein (can be chicken, pork, egg, etc.) on a bed of spinach and topped with Mornay sauce (a cheezy Bechamel). Being a calorie bomb, this sauce… I didn’t make the protein swim in like most recipes for Chicken Florentine out there. I’ve simply added a bit to prevent the meal from getting too heavy, and frankly, it’s sufficient! Nutty Note I’ve added a few grilled…

Chicken & Broccoli Pasta Salad is the ultimate pasta salad without any mayo! A simple yet addictive pasta salad made with al dente broccoli, chicken bits, red bell pepper, onion, basil and feta drizzled with olive oil! This Chicken & Broccoli Pasta Salad is an addictive “wake up in the middle of the night for a bite” meal… a “you have more than me” meal. This is a recipe from way back in the days when I used to sleep over at my friend’s house, and her mom knew I was coming. Then, she would make me that pasta salad. I could not get enough, it looked like a simple pasta salad, but something in it made it impossible to stop eating… With the years, I transformed it even more to my taste; I’ve added feta cheese and fresh basil leaves. The Golden Dressing The dressing for this pasta salad is simply fresh…

Creamy Chicken Stuffed Round Courgettes are a light meal with many veggies, like sweet peas, leek, red bell pepper, and carrots, for a fun, creamy, and colourful bite.  This Stuffed Round Courgettes recipe is filling a chicken pot pie trapped in a mini round courgette, a fun way to eat chicken leftovers. Whenever I see those precious green or yellow round courgettes, I cannot resist! They’ve got to come home with me! If you don’t have such courgettes at your market, you can make the exact same recipe with long zucchinis. Cut on the length, empty them and voila! They might not look as nice, but the end result for your tastebuds will be the same. Béchamel Oh mighty! Béchamel looks like tons of fat because it’s thick and unctuous, but it’s not as bad as one would think, especially next to a Hollandaise or cream sauce. Plus, it’s fairly…

Chicken breast with mushroom sauce served on black rice is an easy and smooth dish for mushroom lovers. Plus, the healthy properties of black rice are extraordinary! Look at that nice black n white rice dish! This precious black rice turns into dark shades of purple when done right. Not only is it super healthy rice, but it’s also just so pretty on a plate and contrasts perfectly with any cream sauce. This Chicken breast with mushroom sauce is a shout-out to any mushroom lover out there. I personally disliked mushrooms as a kid. I believe it was mostly the squeaky texture that repulsed me. Today, strangely all the stuff I used to dislike as a kid are some of my favourites; like olives, strong cheeses, mushrooms, fish, etc. Strange how our taste develops into something completely different. Black Rice I like to explore more variations of rice, flour and pasta types.…
