The ALDI Chicken Range is a Cut Above the Rest – Share Your Fave Chicken Dish & WIN!

I have to admit I’m pretty fussy when it comes to buying my meat. I want it lean, fresh, full of flavour and quite simply, I don’t want to pay through the nose for it.

Even better if it’s from a local supplier, and even better if I know it’s going to be guaranteed fresh every time!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a meat snob, but given it’s generally forming some integral part of every dish in our house (yes we’re big meat lovers at our place, especially so with chicken!), good quality meat at an affordable price is a non-negotiable.


So when ALDI hit SA shores earlier this year I was somewhat apprehensive as to what the meat was all about. First off, the range? I ‘assumed’ it would just be your stock standard entry level range – breasts, thighs, wings and drumsticks. BOY WAS I WRONG!

ALDI-Meat-RangeALDI actually stocks an impressive range of chicken (both standard and free-range varieties) with ready made meals you can just pop in the oven, marinated varieties great for the oven, grill, BBQ and pan plus the whole range of your traditional cuts – breast, thigh, wing and drumstick!

Best of all their meat is 100% Australian grown fresh meat at permanently low prices.

With a great range of products across beef, lamb, chicken and pork, together with a pretty impressive range of ready-to-cook meals and variety of cuts to suit all budgets!

ALDI-Meat-Range-PoultryALDI offers two chicken brands, with cuts and quality to suit your budget and your taste!

divider-3Broad Oak Farms is ALDI’s contemporary range of chicken are cage-free chickens and contain no added hormones.  The range includes chicken breast fillets, thighs, drumsticks, wings and whole chickens.  Always fresh and never frozen, Broad Oak Farms chicken is delivered daily ensuring quality, freshness and value for money!

ALDI’s Broad Oak Farms chicken range is their everyday contemporary range of chicken. They’re cage-free chickens and contain no added hormones, plus they’re never frozen and delivered daily ensuring quality, freshness and value for money!

divider-3Willowton Free Range Chicken has no added hormones and is antibiotic free.  Their chickens are free to access outdoor pastures during daylight hours and have access to natural food sources such as grass, bugs (yep!) and grain (rather than a strict grain only diet like barn raised hens).  We believe this results in a more enjoyable natural meat taste and texture.

ALDI’s Willowton Free Range Chicken is free from added hormones and antibiotics. Chickens roam free during daylight hours and access natural food sources such as grass, bugs and grain.

    My ‘easy as’ chicken recipe is a family staple, I use Aldi Broad Oak Chicken Breast Fillets thinly sliced, browned in a little butter with some diced onion, seasoned with salt, pepper and some mixed herbs. Then add in a tablespoon of wholegrain mustard, several cups of frozen vegies, a tub of cream and some semi sundried tomatoes and leave to simmer for about 10-15 minutes. It is so yummy and warming on a cool night.

They are then served with tumeric rice (yellow rice). Yum!!!

    Ginger & Citrus Roast Chicken! Fresh lemons, oranges and a large knob of ginger is the key! Smothering the chicken in coconut oil, rub the ginger and lemon under the skin and add remainder lemon into cavity.

Allow chicken to marinate in butter milk with salt and pepper overnight, make up your flour and spice mix (I like to add whatever I find as well as drying out my own herbs to add) then shake the buttermilk chicken in the flour and shallow fry or oven bake (or be naughty like me and add to the deep fryer when no one is home!)

    Bacon Babies. Great to make if you’re cranky……mallet (hard and loud hahaha) 4 chicken thighs until thin. Cut 2 puff pastry sheets in half and pop the chicken in the centre of each. Put a slice of cheese and cooked bacon on each, with a wee bit of garlic and mixed herbs or pesto. Fold the chicken over to cover the filling. Fold pastry over and squish the ends together to make a parcel. Brush with egg or milk. Bake for about 45 minutes at 180. Enjoy 🙂

    My favorite and super, super simple recipe for scrumptious chicken with no fuss.

    Use either chicken drumsticks or Chicken thigh or breast fillets.
    This recipe works with either.

    1 kilo chicken
    1 large jar (or 2 smaller jars) of pasta sauce ( I choose garlic and herbs)
    200gm frozen chopped onions
    200gm bacon pieces

    Put all ingredients in an oven proof casserole dish.
    Cook for approx 1.5 hours at 180 Celsius

    Serve on a bed of steamed rice and a side salad.

    This is so delicious and easy and is always a winner at my place.

Cook until the cream is nicely reduced.
    Spray a baking dish with olive oil and gently put one puff pastry sheet on it, covering the borders as well. Pour the chicken and leek mix on the top of the pastry sheet. Close the pie with another puff pastry sheet.
    Brush some olive oil on the top of the pie and bake for 25 minutes.

    My absolute favourite chicken dish is a sundried tomato chicken pasta recipe I learned in high school and have been cooking it often for the last 14 years!
    500g chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
    1 onion, sliced thinly
    Butter or olive oil
    1 jar sundried tomato pesto
    3/4 jar of sundried tomatoes, drained well and chopped
    250-300ml cream
    Your choice of pasta (i use penne or spiral)

    Brown chicken pieces in large frypan with butter or oil. Add onion and cook until chicken and onions are both cooked. Add pesto and sundried tomatoes and stir for a few minutes. Add cream and let simmer for 10 minutes. Season and serve with pasta

    My favourite chicken dish at this time of year is a super simple recipe I cooked up for the fussy eaters in my house. I dice up approximately 500g of chicken breasts into bite-size pieces, add 1-2 tsp of crushed garlic, 1 small onion finely diced, 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese, and enough thickened cream to cover (around 200ml). I cook this in a pan on the stove, seasoned with freshly ground pepper. Cooking the chicken in the cream this way makes the meat really tender, and insures your sauce stays creamy and not oily (as opposed to pre-cooking the onions and chicken in oil). The garlic, onions and parmesan perfectly compliment each other without overpowering the creamy flavour of the sauce. If needed I thicken the sauce with a little flour and milk. Once the chicken is cooked I pour it all (with the sauce) into an ovenproof dish, and top with a slice of puff pastry – brush the top of the pastry with milk, a little ground pepper, and place in the oven until golden and flaky. This simple chicken pie goes fantastically either with a garden salad or some fresh steamed veggies – it’s a great indulgent dish for winter, and the easy and forgiving recipe can be adapted according to taste with optional additions of leeks, bacon, mushroom – anything that takes your fancy!

    Shredded Mexican Chicken in the slow cooker! It is delicious in burritos, tacos, enchiladas, everything! Such a perfect Mexican flavour, it satisfies my whole mexi-crazy family!! You put two lean chicken breasts in the slow cooker, add a can of diced tomatoes, a packet of taco seasoning and extra cumin, paprika and garlic to your taste! Let it cook for 8 hours on lowwwww, let all that amazing flavour soak into that chicken (and try not to smell it all day because you will be starving!).

    My absolute favourite chicken recipe is done in the slow cooker and is sooo quick and easy, yet incredibly delicious all at the same time. It also combines almost all of my favourite ingredients!

    1 jar Chicken Tonight Cheese & Bacon Simmer Sauce
    Milk (to rinse the jar)
    1-2 cups grated cheese (I always use 2 because I loooove me some cheese).
    300g bacon (diced)
    2 chicken breasts (diced) **We generally use the breasts from a cooked roast chicken – if using raw chicken it would be best to seal it before adding to the slow cooker**
    2 tsp crushed garlic (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
    1 cup dried macaroni

    1. Pour sauce into slow cooker, then rinse jar with milk and add to sauce.
    2. Add cheese, bacon, chicken, cream and garlic. Stir to combine.
    3. Cook on high for 1 hour.
    4. Add dried macaroni and stir through.
    5. Cook for another 30-45 minutes until pasta is cooked.
    6. Serve, eat and send yourself to creamy cheesy chicken bacon heaven!!

    My delicious chicken parmigiana! I first take my Aldi chicken breasts, cut them into medium sized pieces and I coat them in flour. After I dip it in flour I dip it into a mixture of egg yolks and milk. Then I put it into a plate of bread crumbs seasoned with garlic, onion powder and oregano. Make sure it’s fully coated and fry it into a hot skillet filled with canola oil for 15-20 minutes. I cook them on both sides till they are golden brown and crispy on the outside while the chicken is juicy and tender on the inside. I then put all the chicken into a baking dish, top it off with homemade marinara sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. I put it into the oven for around 10 minutes until the cheese is all gooey and bubbly. I serve it with a plate of spaghetti because come on, you got to have spaghetti with this dish! The chicken just melts in your mouth and you’ll definitely be back for seconds, even thirds! With the crunchy coating of the breadcrumbs, the juiciness of the chicken, the sweetness of the marinara sauce and the saltiness of the mozzarella, it’s heaven in your mouth!

    My best ever roast chicken
    Perfect for the busy food loving family!

    Line the bottom of a medium sized slow cooker with 3 egg rings or a few small alfoil balls and coat cooker with spray oil.

    Prepare chicken: pat dry skin and inside of chicken with paper towel. Season top of chicken with 1tb season-all, 1tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. The flavour seeps into the chicken and gives it a beautiful golden colour. Fill cavity of chicken with a lemon cut in half (optional: and any fresh seasonal herbs from the garden- thyme, rosemary and sage are perfect). Place chicken on alfoil or egg rings and spray with cooking oil. Put lid on- no other liquid required!

    Cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. The chicken will cook above it’s own juices creating the most delicious, succulent, tender chicken. When you pull out the chicken it will just melt off the bones. Serve with veg or salad of your choice.

    Bonus tip: you can put the skin and bones back in the cooker with the juices and add onion, celery and carrot, a bayleaf and 6 pepper corns, fill with water and leave on low cooking overnight. You will wake up to a rich flavoursome chicken stock that you can strain and add leftover chicken, a handful of barley or noodles and veg of your choice for a rich hearty chicken soup for the next nights dinner!

    This is so easy, but a real favourite. When the children were getting ready to home, this was the first dish they learnt how to make, and all three of them still cook it.
    1 kilo chicken thighs
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 tub sour cream
    2 to 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
    Remove excess fat from thighs, place flat in lasagne type dish, mix all other ingredients together and pour over chicken. Cook in 180 degree oven until cooked. Really delicious.
    If you prefer you can use plain yoghurt, instead of sour cream
    You can use curry powder, instead of mustard
    If you don’t have cream of chicken, I’ve used cream of asparagus/celery/ or mushroom, depending on what I’ve had in the pantry.
    You can serve with rice, mashed potato and veg, or I’ve even used it as a filling for pastie type thing, or pot pies. Really just delicious.

    My chicken dish is simple but yummy. Its taking breast chicken cutting it in half and then pounding down alittle. Now dip chicken in egg whipped with a fork, making sure it completely covered with egg and then dip chicken into a bowl with crushed cornflakes. Make sure chicken coated with cornflakes, before taking to a hot pan with olive oil and a little margarine or butter and pan fry till golden brown.

    My JULIENNED CHICKEN BREAST AND VEGETABLES IN A FILO POUCH is a family favourite and a hit at dinner parties. It consists of succulent chicken, mushroom, red capsicum, avocado and oozy cream cheese with onion, garlic and Cajun seasoning baked in filo pastry. The Cajun seasoning, garlic powder and onion flakes really make this dish tasty as the flavours develop inside the pouch as it cooks. The Philadelphia Cream Cheese is to die for as it oozes out each time you cut it. Sometimes I mix it up and add different herbs and spices because variety is the “spice” of life!

    Chicken cacciatore, it’s simple, affordable and full of rich tomato flavour. The best part is put all ingredients into slow cooker with chicken things, can tomatoes, olives and mushrooms and by dinner time you have this melt in mouth dish perfect for winter warming.

    So simple and easy and tastes like a little bit of heaven, that’s my Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings. Buy some wings from Aldi, place in a roasting dish and sprinkle with Lemon Pepper (from Aldi of course!). Roast till crisp and dark and serve with any roast vegies your little heart desires (cook at the same time as the wings). This recipe has turned me into a domestic goddess.

    My husband rubs butter under the skin of the breast along with parsley, then oils the outside skin, grinds plenty of salt over the skin and gently massages it in the skin, leave’s it to sit for a while then places the whole chicken into a baking tray and into the webber cooker that’s he’s so carefully prepared with iron bark chips and coals for that perfect smoke flavour and then slowly cooks the bird for the next few hours. The result is extremely moist chicken on the inside whilst the whole skin on the bird is crispy and crackly and My Goodness…Oh So Delicious…and just quietly I Looove that man so much more when he cooks din din 😀

    I love the Aldi marinated chicken thighs. The lemon and herb is fantastic! The meat is tender and juicy and the marninade is just delicious! The kids love it too, which is always a bonus. I like to cook it on the BBQ so it gets nice and charred and then serve it cut into slices with salad on a platter, chutney or mayo and wraps, so that everyone can help themselves and make up their own favourite combination. The best family dinner!

    Chicken and pasta. First you brown the chicken legs in a the pot then add a can of diced tomatoes, 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, salt, pepper and basil and oregano cooked until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through. cooked spaghetti pasta until done then drain and stir through the pot with the chicken and sauce and then lick your lips because it is ready.

    French Creamed Chicken! (Oo La La)
    Oh so simple but Oh so delish – this easy dish will have your guests begging for the recipe. (Don’t tell them – just relish in the kudos)
    Slice a large chicken breast into strips and place in an oven proof dish. Mix a packet of French onion soup mix into 300ml cream (I love strong flavours so always add a pack & a half, and you may want a bit more cream if you like lots of sauce).
    Pour over the chicken, give a little stir to coat and pop in the preheated oven for approx 30mins. The sauce miraculously thickens and sticks to the chicken which has a beautiful soft poached texture. Serve with fresh green beans, brocollini and julienned carrots and Bon Apetite!

    My Mum used to make this awesome southern style chicken casserole. I’ve never been able to recreate it so that it tastes amazingly good like hers, as she passed away before I was wise enough to ask for the recipe. The chicken was coated in a southern style seasoning mix, browned with onions and capsicums and then put in the slow cooker with whole tinned tomatoes, carrots potatoes and sometimes peas. She served it with rice or mashed potato. Oh how I wish I could have some now 🙁

    Ricotta, Bacon, Fetta and Spinach Stuffed Chicken wrapped with Honey Glazed Prosciutto has always been a family favourite of mine! It is so simple too! All you need to do is:
    1. Butterfly a large chicken breast
    2. Line a slice of bacon, fresh ricotta cheese, feta cheese and spinach in the middle of the chicken breast
    3. Roll the chicken breast around the filling and stick toothpicks in the opening to seal it
    4. Wrap a few slices of Prosciutto around the sealed chicken breast
    5. Lightly grease a frying pan and fry the chicken breast on each side of a few minutes to seal in the chicken juice and tenderness
    6. Transfer chicken onto a greased baking tray and brush chicken breast lightly with honey
    7. Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes (give or take 5 minutes depending on size of chicken)
    8. Remove from oven and reapply a layer of honey
    9. Return to oven for another 5-10 minutes
    10. Chicken is cooked when juice on the bottom of tray come out clear
    The end product is a delicious sweet, sticky, salty, cheezy chicken breast that is jam packed with flavour! My family loves it when I serve it with a Mediterranean style rice and some grilled vegetables!

    Creamy garlic Tuscan chicken. Go no further than Aldi for everything you need except the white wine. Succulent chicken tenders slow cooked in chicken stock with dried basil, rosemary, oregano, parsley and crushed fresh garlic. Sundried tomatoes sliced and a few good splashes of white wine. Let slow cook for you few hrs and then baby spinach, add cream and parmesan and cook further to thicken. Cook up some penne and when al dente lightly toss together. Fill up your wine glass because you can’t waste a good drop… and ENJOY

    Mexican Chicken Lasagne

    So I’m a lover of traditional lasagne from way back. My mum taught me how to make it 15 years ago and I’ve loved every bite since!
    I make it. I eat it. I adore it!
    But having a toddler who likes to suddenly despise things at the drop of a hat, I had to think quick. So I came up with this. And it’s a hit. Time after time [love that song!].

    Into a frying pan: 500g chicken mince, 1 onion, grated anything (carrot, zucchini, capsicum etc), spinach (I use the frozen blocks).
    Add: 1 tin salt reduced condensed tomato soup, 1 packet taco seasoning.
    Into a base lined springform tin: 1 tortilla. Sprinkle of cheese then another tortilla (helps to keep it stable)
    Layer: chicken mix then sprinkle of cheese. Spread some sour cream onto a tortilla and place on so it sticks to the cheese. Repeat. And repeat. Top layer I add extra cheese. Because.
    Cook: oven at 180. cooked when cheese is melted.

    I have made this with a burrito mix and it’s just as good! Could also use tinned tomatoes instead of soup if you prefer 🙂

    Hasselbeck chicken its so easy as well.
    You simply cook up some spinich (i like baby spinich best) with garlic till it is just wilted let it cool a bit and combined it with equal parts ricotta cheese (for extra creaminess add some sour cream). With a whole chicken breast slice the top of it but not all the way through about 5 times on a diagonal. Stuff the the sliced sections with the spinich mix. Place them on a oven tray and top with grated cheese bake at 180 for 30 min. When its done the chicken is moist the sauce is creamy and has alot of flavour and the cheese ontop has a crunch to it. It is so easy to make its healthy and is so yummy. I know what im going to have for dinner tonight

    Cut chicken into small pieces and marinate it with soy sauce, chinese cooking wine and pea starch for about 10 mins. Make sauce with pea starch, salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. Cut shallots, ginger and dried chillies into pieces. Put them into the hot oil then add marinated diced chicken and stir them well. Add the sauce and keep stirring. Then add roasted peanuts. After stirring a while, this delicious dish is ready for serve. Enjoy!

    Every busy parent needs a quick go to dish and this is mine.
    It certainly isn’t the fanciest but due to its affordability, ease and mouthwatering taste it is a firm favourite in our house.
    We use chicken breasts with skin on but if these aren’t available or you are looking for a cheaper or different alternative then Maryland, thigh pieces or even whole chickens work well.
    You want to work the skin away from the flesh creating a pocket, slice the cheeks off a fresh mango and stuff under the skin along with a generous helping of cream cheese. If they aren’t in season then tinned works fine as well and apricots are a tasty alternative if mangoes aren’t your thing.
    Oven bake until your chicken is cooked through, the skin is a golden brown and the mango/apricot has cooked down with the cream cheese to a creamy hot filling of deliciousness.
    Serve with shoestring fries which are perfect for dipping in escaped filling otherwise it goes really well with a fresh Caesar salad. Enjoy!

    Being a busy mum with 3 children whilst juggling full time study – quick, easy and family friendly meals are a high priority for me. One of our weekly meals that the whole family loves is slow cooked chicken curry.

    In the morning just before we leave the house I put a pack of chicken thighs (we recently switched to aldi when I realised they stock free-range chicken) into the slow cooker with a couple of large spoonfuls of green Thai curry paste, some chunky chopped carrot, sweet potato and a tin of coconut milk. When I get home with all the kids after the childcare, kinder and school run the house smells AMAZING! Not only that but all I have to do at that hellish time of day is cook some rice, stir some baby spinach through the curry and serve up the creamy, melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness that the whole family devour week after week. And hubby loves it when there’s leftovers for lunch the next day!

    What Mexican dinner dish could be better than tacos, enchiladas or burritos? My Mexican Chicken Bake! Apart from being super easy, it can be prepared in advance so when it comes to dinner time just pop in the oven and hey presto! You’re welcome 🙂

    1 cup rice
    300gm tin kidney beans rinsed and drained
    1 tablespoon oil
    600gm boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets roughly chopped
    400gm spicy taco sauce
    2 cups grated tasty Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup sour cream
    Fresh coriander to garnish

    Preheat oven and lightly grease a baking dish (I use a lasagne dish). Combined cooked rice with kidney beans and lighly press the mixture so it’s flat. Cover with half the cheese.

    Saute chicken thighs in taco sauce for around six minutes until just cooked. Place on the cheese covered rice and cover with the rest of the cheese and then foil.

    Cook for half an hour until bubbling and remove foil and cook for around another 10 minutes.

    Serve with dollops of sour cream and fresh coriander.

    Note – for my kiddies I use medium taco spice, smaller pieces of chicken and omit the coriander 🙂

    Roast Chicken Puff Burgers

    Roast Chicken
    Puff Pastry
    Sour Cream
    Dijon Mustard

    Roast the chicken until cooked. When close to being ready defrost the puff pastry and cut into equal quarter squares (one square = 1 burger).

    Mix the ‘secret’ delicious sauce together; 300ml sour cream and one tbs dijon mustard, a half handful of freshly chopped chives and a squeeze of lemon juice. Slice lettuce and tomato and put to one side.

    When chicken is cooked take out of oven and let cool for a bit before tearing meat off and putting into a bowl ready to assemble burgers.

    Brush puff pastry with milk and pop in the oven until golden. Take puff pastries out of oven and cut in half.

    Here’s the fun part; I put all now cooked ingredients on the table and let the kids and hubby assemble their own chicken burger (they eat more that way).

    The result is a deliciously tasty twist on a roast dinner and not as heavy as a regular burger. Always a mess; but always have full bellies and smiles on faces afterwards.

Coat drumsticks in olive oil, generously coat in herbs and rub well. Place on a shallow tray in a very hot over- 200-220 degrees for 20 minutes or until very crispy! Serve with rice and homemade satay sauce if you have time. Satay sauce is also a cinch- in a microwaveable jug, preferably glass, two big tablespoons peanut butter, one can coconut cream, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp each of tumeric, and coriander seed (ground). Some fresh ginger and garlic if you have it too ( tsp of each, finely chopped) and a tsbp of honey or raw sugar. Sooooo good, and a total people pleaser!!

    our (brazilians) favourite snack!anytime anyday! the famous Coxinhas… (chicken croquettes like)


    1 quart vegetable oil, for frying
    3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    1 onion, peeled and quartered
    1 carrot, peeled and quartered
    1 celery rib, quartered
    Chicken Filling
    1 large chicken breast
    8 ounces packaged cream cheese, softened
    1 ear corn, kernels cut off the cob
    2 green onions, thinly sliced
    1 garlic clove, minced
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon whole milk
    1 cup plain Italian bread crumbs
    Salt and pepper, to taste

    1. In a large pot, preheat oil to 350°F. In another large pot, combine broth, onions, carrots, and celery and bring to a simmer. Carefully add chicken, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Poach chicken for 12 to 15 minutes, or until just cooked through. Turn off heat, but leave the pot of hot poaching liquid on the stove. Remove chicken from liquid and let it rest for 10 minutes.
    2. For the filling, finely chop or shred chicken into a large mixing bowl. Add cream cheese, corn, green onions, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Fold to combine.
    3. Strain 1 1/2 cups of the poaching liquid and discard the rest. In a saucepan over high heat, bring reserved liquid and oil to a boil. Add flour and stir vigorously until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out small rounds using a 3-inch circle cutter or the rim of a round cup. Place a small scoop (about 1 tablespoon) of the filling in the center of each round. Pinch dough together at the top to seal, creating plump little teardrop-shaped pouches. In a small bowl, lightly whisk eggs and milk together. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl. Carefully dip each pouch into the egg wash and then the bread crumbs until fully coated. Fry coxinha in small batches for 7 to 9 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, lightly season with salt, and serve hot.

    Always always chicken soup. Made with 2 day organic chicken bone broth, piles of vegies from the farm stalls, vinegar & salt to draw the flavour. Sounds simple but is a lot of work and well worth it.

    My favourite quick and easy (but delicious and impressive) dish is Mexican Chicken. I can slap this together in a flash even on those nights when I’m completely done with adulting.

    To make this super-tasty winter warmer, simply lay chicken breasts in a baking dish and coat them with a packet of taco seasoning. Then take a jar of salsa (I like to use hot, but swap it out for mild if the kids are dining with us) and dollop it all over the seasoned chicken to cover. Finally, scatter a generous helping of grated cheese over the lot and pop it in the oven at 180C for around 30 minutes (until your house smells amazing and the chicken is cooked through).

    I serve this with rice and salad (and sour cream), making it lightning fast to assemble and prepare, as well as ridiculously yummy and satisfying.

    My family`s favourite chicken recipe is using this un-boiled method,it makes moist, flavorful meat — the flavor isn’t all boiled out into the broth, and it doesn’t get the sort of carmelised flavor of roasting, which I don’t care for in a chicken salad. If you do Once-A-Month Cooking, this is a great way to prepare a lot of chicken for the freezer. The 90 minute cooking time is actually 60 minutes of standing after (approximately) 30 minutes to boil the water twice.You only need chicken (you may use whole or as desired) and water. Fill a very large pot with water, enough to cover the chicken completely. You want a LOT of water. An 8 quart pot at least is best for ONE chicken or about 3 pounds of parts WITH bones. I do NOT recommend for boneless chicken, as the heat will not be able to penetrate the big pile of meat at the bottom of the pot.).
    Do not put the chicken in yet.
    Bring to a boil.
    Now put in the chicken.
    As soon as it STOPS boiling, take out the chicken.
    Return the water to a boil, then put the chicken back in and cover tightly.
    Turn off the heat but leave the pot on the burner.
    Leave it untouched for exactly ONE HOUR.
    Remove chicken from water.
    Let it cool just enough to handle, then debone your chicken.
    I’ve been making it this way since forever.
    You can use a whole chicken or parts.
    The large volume of water is important: I use a 15 quart stock pot, and do 2 chickens at one time.
    (then I save the skin& bones up in the freezer until I have a bunch, and use them to make broth). You will get the moistest, juiciest chicken you have ever ate.

    Chicken and Bacon Fettuccini, it is so quick and easy to make and yummy to eat, its one of the few dishes that all of my 3 boys and hubby always agree on. You simply diced up the chicken breast and bacon and brown, stir in cream and I use a premade packet mix for the fettuccini base (its easier with a 2 year old hanging off of me) then melt through the grated cheese and stir through the pasta ( I often just use spiral pasta as the kids manage it better) and serve with some garlic bread. So simple

Wrap each chicken breast with slices of streaky bacon ( can double wrap or single wrap in bacon ) using about 3 slices per fillet ( can double wrap in bacon if you like) Cook at 180C for about 35 minutes and serve on a bed of sliced avocado, lettuce, red capsicum, and continental cucumber salad.

    My favourite chicken dish that help keep every healthy in the winter in my own home made honey, lemon and garlic diced chicken served with either lemon and rosemary potatoes or with brown rice. In the morning I get some fresh lemons off the tree and juice them about 1/3 of a cup of fresh lemon juice and a table spoon or 2 of honey in a mixing bold then grate 3 coves of Garlic and pop that into the mix stir it around and leave for a hour or so, so that the flavour combine. Later I dice my chicken breast and pop the into the lemon mix adding a cup of water and mixing it all around I leave that marinating for at least half an hour then in a pan with a teaspoon of olive oil until all the juice reduces and the chicken is cooked nicely. Serve with potatoes that have been basted in lemon juice and rosemary then baked in the oven or just on brown rice with some wilted spinach and cooked peas and corn throughout.

    My fav is a simple chicken dish. Throw some chicken (any cuts you like) into a slow cooker with fresh thyme, oregano, garlic, onion, lemon juice, salt, pepper and some a little home made chicken stock. Cook until the meat its falling apart. Dish up on top of some freshly cooked quinoa and serve with veggies. Delish! Chicken is definitely the hero in this one! Any left over juices in the bottom you can reserve for cooking with or make a gravy.

    My easy, delicious sweet & sticky chicken!
    It has the sweetness from honey and a the tang from soy! I love this marinade as the chicken turns out to be such a versatile ingredient and can be used in multiple ways! It freezes well and it’s amazing served over rice, tossed in a stirfry, used as a fajitas base. Can also be skewered for a tasty party appetiser! And best thing is that left overs (if there is any!!) can be dished up the next day in a wrap or a salad topping! I mainly use chicken breasts but can easily (and we’ve had it many times) as a sticky Drumsticks marinade!

    You will need:
    400g chicken cut into strips

    3/4c Oil (i use macadamia Or rice bran)
    1/3c Honey
    1 tsp minced Garlic
    1/2 tsp minced Ginger
    1/3c Soy sauce (or tamari if gluten intolerant)
    1/4c Brown sugar

    What to do:
    In a large bowl, heat oil in the microwave for 30 seconds.
    It will be HOT.
    Stir in honey, garlic and ginger
    Then add the soy and sugar.
    Mix well to dissolve sugar.
    Let marinade cool for 5 mins.
    Once cooled stir again then pour over your chicken and let sit for a couple of mins.

    Heat fry pan and once hot enough layer chicken in pan. Pour marinade over top of chicken and cook through.

    Enjoy your dish!

    My favorite chicken dish is chicken with balsamic vinegar, orange and rosemary jus over a bed of fluffy white rice. Each bite is a massive hit to your taste buds. You can also make the jus on its own as a gravy. Its a versitile dish that can be adjusted easily for just 1 person or 10 and served with noodles or mashed potatoes instead. My family love it! And its easy to make.

    Baked chicken risotto – white wine, arborio rice, baby spinach, mushrooms, roast chicken leftovers (more flavour than fresh breast or thigh, and uses the leftovers too!), stock (made from roast chicken carcass), pinenuts, stock and parmesan. Baking in the oven means no stirring and can do other things while being tempted by the delicious aroma! The white wine and creamy parmesan is enhanced with the crunch of pinenuts added at the end. The roast chicken stock and meat adds deliciousness!! OMG drooling thinking about it…. tomorrow nights’ dinner I think!

    My family love Chicken Stir Fry. It’s easy, healthy and delicious! I use 4 Large skinless Chicken breasts for our family of 4. Often there’s enough left over for the next day.

    I prepare the chicken by trimming it and cutting it into large dices or strips. Then I use a simple marinade of crushed garlic, soy sauce and honey, cover the chicken with it and put it in the fridge for 20mins or so while I prepare the vegetables.

    I prepare the vegetables (peel, wash, chop) and use as many different vegetables as possible. Usually Broccoli, Carrots, Snap Peas, Green Beans, Green & Red Capsicum, Bok Choy, Mushrooms and Bean Sprouts.

    Take the chicken out of the fridge and cook in preheated Wok. Once the chicken is cooked, I add all the Vegetables and with the wok at a high heat, keep stirring all the ingredients until vegetables are hot. We usually eat our vegetables quite crunchy so not much cooking. If you prefer vegetables a bit more well done, a tip is to lightly steam them before throwing them into the wok. Season with salt & pepper as required.

    I usually serve the stir fry on a bed of fluffy white rice for our hungry growing family.

    That’s right. Hummus. The stuff we normally just dip things into. Combine with veggies (bake them alongside the chicken) and turn it into a quick and simple one-pot meal. Less than 10 minutes prep time, chop the veggies and add them and put the chicken breasts into a big baking dish, slathe the chicken with hummus and some lemon juice, sprinkle on a little smoked paprika and pop it in the oven. About half an hour later you’ll find out that “hummus-crusted” stands for amazingly flavourful and yum.
    The hummus is the rock star of the dish — it develops a light crust on the chicken and infuses the veggies with extra oomph. Add some herbs, or balsamic, or a little white wine to go with this. Pure deliciousness.



    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    salt and pepper
    1 zucchini, chopped
    1 yellow squash, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped

    1 cup hummus, (store bought is fine)
    1 Tbsp. olive oil
    2 lemons
    1 tsp. smoked paprika or sumac


    Preheat oven to 225°. Prepare one large baking dish with cooking spray.
    Pat the chicken dry. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini, squash and onion with olive oil until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper.

    Place all of the vegetables on the bottom of the dish in an even layer. Lay the four chicken breasts evenly on top, then cover each chicken breast with the hummus so that the entire breast is covered. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken and vegetables. Then sprinkle the pan with smoked paprika. Thinly slice the remaining lemon, and place the slices in between the chicken and vegetables if desired.

    Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Enjoy !!!

    I was mucking about in the kitchen one day and came up with Moroccan Chicken with Kale and Turmeric Rice. The chicken is cooked in a pan with garlic, onions and Moroccan seasoning and then in the last 5 minutes of cooking, I throw in chopped kale until it is softly wilted. Then I serve it on top of basmati rice that has been cooked in water with turmeric and salt. Tastes fantastic and all up takes about 25 minutes to make so a great mid-week meal that is very healthy too.

    Chicken Crema Pollo pasta

    Lovely chicken pasta in pink sauce with avocado and mushrooms.

    Ingredients (serves 4)
    – 500g Thinely sliced Aldi Willowtown or Oak Brook chicken breast or chicken tights
    – 200g Sliced mushrooms
    – 1 Tin of Aldi organic diced tomatoes
    – 300 ml Aldi cream
    – 2 Ripe “diced” avocado
    – 2 Tbsp Olive oil
    – 1 tsp Sugar
    – Salt and pepper

    1. Heat the water for your pasta in a large pan. Heat the olive oil in a deep pan and add the chicken. Once the chicken is “sealed” add the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes.
    2. Add the tomatoes, creamand sugar. Bring it to boil add the avocado and reduce the heat to simmer.
    3. Simmer until your pasta is ready and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Voilà- enjoy

    – the sugar will assist with regulating the acidity of the tomatoes
    – this sauce is very liquid. You can thicken the sauce by adding some cornflour dilute with water during the simmering time.

    So disappointed and cross about whole chicken (Broad farm) I bought yesterday. Popped it in microwave, which I often do when in a hurry-when I went to cut it found several broken bones & blood had seeped into the meat, which didn’t look too good. Maybe this was an unlucky chook that fell on the floor ? or not hung long enough to bleed out. I sometimes have bleedy legs, but this was the worst. I get a lot of chicken meals from Aldi, so not happy when something like this occurs. Quality control not good enough??
