Knowing how to make good, fresh chicken stock is such an asset. Using high quality chicken stock, preferably homemade, can really change the flavour of a dish and make it taste sooo much better.
Plus making your own stock also means you know EXACTLY what’s gone into it and it won’t be overloaded with salt like many ready-to-go stock cubes.
This is a super simple way to make your own chicken stock. I use it as a base for loads of things but I particularly like using it in my kid-friendly chicken and mushroom risotto.
Mmmm risotto is one of my FAVOURITE dishes. This kid-friendly chicken and mushroom risotto is amazing and whilst it may be missing some normal risotto ingredients (aka wine) it tastes just as good (plus more wine for you, YAY).
Mushrooms are a great addition to any dish and an easy way to sneak in another serve of vegetables into your family’s diet. They’re high in B Vitamins, particularly niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid. They are also high in selenium – an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage – and potassium.
I love perfectly cooked chicken. This crispy chive chicken is so tasty and QUICK to make. You can have it on the table within 15 minutes.
Great for those nights when you want to avoid the kitchen as much as possible.
This recipe is gluten free and uses almond meal as the base of the chicken coating. Almonds are such a great nut. They are high in vitamin E and are packed with nutrients that boost brain activity. Perfect for kids and babies.
