    I made the med tray bake yesterday. Followed the recipe to the letter & after 20 mins in the oven (which is what the recipe said) the spuds where still raw & the chicken wasn't fully cooked so I put back in for about another 30 mins & it was cooked but looked nothing like the picture! My advice would be to pre cook your spuds

    what else has everyone made? I'm going to try the one pot chicken thing on monday

    I've done this sort of tray bake before and always par boil the spuds and cook the chicken for longer.

    Last week we had:-
    • Pork & Cider hotpot - very nice
    • Bacon wrapped chicken with cheese - very nice
    • BLT Burger, not so nice it lacked seasoning & just wasn't a burger, but then again I'm not really a big meat eater & would usually have just chicken or pork.
    • Welsh onion cake, I enjoyed this but OH didn't
    • Egg & gammon loaf - very nice, OH doesn't like peppers so we put in spinach & cabbage, which worked well.
    • Sweet chilli pork - not too sure about this one, it was ok.
    • Tonight I'm trying the garlic chicken;)

    Ok will do;)

    I usually have meat just 1 or twice a week no more, but when I look at last weeks diary, I've had so much. I gave OH the receipe page from the mag & asked him what he would eat from there (he's a bit fussy) & that is what he chose.

    I had the prawn linguine tonight - very simple and quick to make, and pretty nice.

    Tried the eton mess too - it came out a bit runnier than the photos suggest, but was tasty, although definitely only for the very sweet toothed!

    The garlic chicken was very nice, I'd have it again. We used chicken breasts as I don't usually buy a whole chicken. It was very easy to make, just chuck everything in the pan & cook in the oven, couldn't be simpler.;)

    I've tried a few more things from the mag :)

    Pasta primavera - very simple to make and tasted fine, though not very exciting. Nice to have a pasta sauce that's not tomato-based for a change though!
    Lentil pie - very yummy! Made a nice hearty meal, and a good veggie alternative to shepherd's pie.
    Lamb and spinach curry - delicious!
    Mexican bake - lots of flavour, very enjoyable. I had half a butternut squash left so I bunged that in and halved the amount of potato, which worked well.
    Greek-style lamb casserole - absolutely delicious. The boyfriend made very happy noises while eating, lmao.
    Cauliflower and potato curry - I cooked this for 40 mins instead of the 20-25 suggested and it was only just cooked, even though I cut the potato up very small. Tasted pretty boring as well - pretty flavourless. Would put more spices in if I made again (but won't - have nicer curry recipes to choose from!)

    we did these, added mushroom and red onion to the egg loaf, that was fantastic

    but the chicken is to die for.

    The chicken is so yummy, we were talking about that last night.

    OH doesn't like mushrooms but will try the loaf with onions.
