Sweet and Sour Style Chicken
Sweet and sour chicken is a Chinese takeaway favourite. Deliciously crispy chicken, sweet and tangy sauce and crunchy peppers, it’s just comfort in a bowl. We’ve skipped the deep-frying in this recipe and teamed the chicken with bulgar wheat instead of rice for a lighter (yet undeniably delicious) take on this takeaway classic.
Sweet and Sour Style Vegetables
Who said carnivores should have all the fun?! We’ve swapped out the chicken in this recipe and replaced it with added veggies, including mushrooms for that rich, umami flavour that complements Asian flavours so well. Topped with peanuts and spring onion for added crunch, we love this veggie alternative just as much.
HFC: HelloFresh Fried Chicken
What could be better than a cheat’s fried chicken? It takes half the time (15 minutes to be exact) and avoids a deep fryer. Simply mix together flour, cajun spice and season, then coat the chicken in the mixture. Pan fry until it’s golden, crispy and downright delicious. This recipe also comes with BBQ fried beans, potato wedges, slaw and gravy so you’ve got the entire spread. Take-out, who?
Souvlaki Style Lamb Koftas with Pomegranate and Mint Yoghurt
If Middle Eastern is your cuisine of choice, you’re going to love this recipe! We’ve teamed the lamb koftas with delicious fresh ingredients such as chopped tomatoes, pomegranate and cucumber with a good helping of mint yoghurt. Cheat night approved.
Chipotle Steak Tacos with Chimichurri Tomato Salad
As quick-fix recipes go, it’s hard to beat these showstopping 35-minute Chipotle Steak Tacos. Taco Tuesday is going to be something else with these in the mix.
