CHICKEN CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

CHICKEN CARNITAS with ROASTED CORN SALSA

When I made pork carnitas the other day, we loved it so much that I felt I had to share the joy with my daughter.  Well, even though I said she could  make it with ‘happy pork’ (her words for free range, no hormone etc etc), she politely responded with a firm ‘no thank you’ but couldn’t I make it with happy chicken?.  So thanks to my little darling I can now say with certainty that these are just as…

CHICKEN MARABELLA (pressure cooker version)

CHICKEN MARABELLA (pressure cooker version)

Chicken Marabella is a delicious dish. Served hot or cold it’s that perfect ‘company’s coming meal’.  So full of rich flavours but the ‘real’ recipe does take some time to put together.  You can read a little about its origins here.  I thought why not see if I could capture the same wonderful taste using a pressure cooker.

This time I added a chopped garlic clove and fresh rosemary to the…

SLOW COOKER TURKEY & STUFFING

SLOW COOKER TURKEY & STUFFING

Even though we are now land-based for the next several months, I still try my best to keep our meals simple to make and economical.  This past boating season I found my combo pressure/steamer/slowcooker to be invaluable.  It does mean that we have to be plugged into shore power or use the generator but the meals that it can produce make onboard life so much easier.  The same applies to being back in our ‘dirt’ galley – dump (literally)  all…
