On to Menu Plan Monday - the only problem with doing this is that I'm always a day ahead of the post from Orgjunkie, so have to remember to go and link up on Tuesday. Oh well.
Monday - homemade pizza (Miss5's request and karate starts again, need something easy)
Tuesday - Sticky Thai chick (see below), rice, stir fry veg
Wednesday - Tortellini bake with salad
Thursday - Thai beef salad (mine is similar to this one, but I use sirloin steak not fillet)
Friday - crockpot lasagne (Mr8's request), salad
Saturday - Chicken curry, chickpea curry... probably raita, rice and a vegetable
Sunday - Kefta meatball tagine with eggs, couscous (DH's request)
Sticky Thai Chicken (can be done in the slow cooker or conventional oven)
This is one of the easiest dishes ever. Haven't put amounts because it depends on how much chicken you have - you'll need enough to fairly coat the chicken. The idea is to get a balance between sweet, salty, sour, hot though.
- apricot jam
- Sweet Thai chilli sauce
- soy sauce or fish sauce
- tomato sauce
- crushed garlic
- lemon or lime juice
Pour onto chicken (I'll be using chicken pieces with bone in). Bake until cooked.
(I'll be adding some grated lemon grass and finely chopped kaffir lime leaves to the mixture too.)
