Chicken Paprika
This was a recipe I tagged in a game that I am involved in on Recipezaar, I shall place a link below. The original recipe did call for chicken breasts with skin on and bone in, as I can not get those here I made with spatchcocks (baby chickens). I used 2 tablespoons of butter and 4 cloves of garlic for 2 chickens. It was way piggy, but when it came time to cut into the birds they just oozed garlic butter which was awesome. The chicken was beautifully moist and tender and the garlic flavour was gorgeous with every bite. This is such a super simple easy recipe to make and it tastes fabulous.

4 Chicken breast halves (with skin on)
4 Teaspoons butter
2 Garlic cloves (crushed, in garlic press or minced)


1. Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius.

2. Mix butter and garlic together.

3. Gently pull skin back on the chicken breast but do not remove. Spread 1/4 of butter/garlic mixture over meat.

4. Pull skin back over, sprinkle paprika on the top of the skin, then place breasts on a baking tray lined with baking paper (don’t need baking paper if using breasts on the bone).

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with other 3 breasts.

6. Put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes (35 to 40 if on the bone).

Honey Hoisin BBQ Salmon
This is fabulous salmon recipe that comes together so well from the marinade to the glaze. I love the taste of the ginger, garlic and cilantro (coriander) in the marinade. I made the same amount of marinade and glaze for 4 salmon fillets as mine were quite large. I served ours over egg noodles and fresh vegetables for a really lovely meal.
