    egg fried rice

    cooked rice (it works best if it is cooked they day before and left in fridge overnight to dry out, or you could place it on an oven tray and place in oven for 5 mins to dry out a bit)
    peas and sweetcorn
    3 eggs
    soy sauce
    salt and pepper

    lightly scramble the eggs just for 2 mins so they are still 'wet', set to one side
    stir fry the cooked rice in frylight for 5 mins, add 1-2 tbsp of soy sauce so that all the rice is coloured brown, add the peas and sweetcorn stir fry for a few mins then add the egg and seasoning and stir fry for a further 2-3 minutes

    for anyone who hasnt tried the sw doner meat or sw kfc i've tried them and are both very nice here's the recipes i picked up of here:

    doner meat
    Ingredients:
    1 teaspoon plain flour
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    500g/1.1 lb lamb mince

    Method:
    Preheat oven to gas mark 4/180C/350F

    In a large bowl, combine the plain flour, dried oregano, dried Italian herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper.

    Add the lamb mince and mix thoroughly for 2-3 minutes. Take out all of your aggression on the kebab mixture, punching and kneading until no air pockets remain and the kebab meat is extremely smooth.

    Shape the seasoned mince into a loaf and place on a baking tray.

    Bake in the middle shelf of the oven for 1 hour 20 minutes, turning the loaf half way through the cooking time to ensure even browning.

    Once cooked, remove from the oven and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 10 minutes.

    Slice the donor kebab as thinly as possible and serve with pitta, salad and sauces!!!


    Syn Free KFC

    10 x Chicken Drummers or 4 Chicken Breasts
    1 x Tub Chicken Bovril Paste
    1 x Egg
    1 x Clove of Garlic crushed (optional if you dont like garlic)
    2 x Teaspoons of Ground Black Pepper (optional)
    2 x Teaspoons of Mixed Spice (optional)
    1 x Teaspoon of mild chilli powder (optional)
    4 x Slices brown bread
    2 x Teaspoons mixed herbes

    Method
    Place chicken drummers/chicken breasts in a deep pan fill with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 mins. Drain and leave to cool. When cool remove the skin and pat dry. Cut chicken breasts into strips.

    Place the bread and mixed herbes into a food processor and blend until crumbled and empty onto a large dish. Scoop out all the bovril paste into a small bowl. Mix in the egg, crushed garlic, pepper, spice and chilli until you have a gloopy paste.

    Now for the fun bit, but before you start switch on the oven to its highest setting and have a baking tray sprayed with fry light on stand by. Using a spoon carefully dribble the paste all over a chicken drummer/strip then roll it in the breadcrumb mixture and place on the baking tray. Repeat until all the drummers/strips are covered.

    Place the chicken in the oven and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until the breadcrumbs have started to go brown and crisp. Remove and leave to cool. Once cool transfer to a serving plate.

    are you using breast or drumsticks. i did it with drumsticks it was nice but been told its much nicer with the breasts, i also did it with quorn pieces as i had loads of paste and breadcrumbs left over - my OH prefered the quorn and he is a big meat eater - i tricked him he though it was chicken! ha ha ;)

    I use a blender but u could do it by hand I guess. Why would u miss out mixed spice? I think it's that & bovril that give it the kfc taste. I bought the secret takeaway book that this recipe & the kebab one is from, can't wait to try the others!!! :)

    awww my blender just broke :( going to have to buy one as i make all my own baby food for my son he won't eat the jars, think i will buy a decent one maybe a kenwood chef.

    the kfc i though it was ok but not great i won't be rushing to make it again, prefered the doner kebab even though i don't really like the takeaway version. any ideas what seasoning is used on the chicken kebabs in takeaways? tried several times to make it but never tastes right and chicken always seems dry. x

    hiya thanks for the tip! i have some ideas for kebabs, not tried any yet tho so i cant give u any advice on which are nice!

    one:

    2 lbs cubed chicken breast
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1/4 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne

    In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-24 hours, covered in the refrigerator.

    two:

    Olive Oil
    1 Lemon Lemon Juice
    2 Onions -- crushed
    2 Bay Leaves
    2 Teaspoons Dried Rigani
    2 Large Tomatoes -- crushed
    Salt And Pepper -- to taste

    Marinate choice of meats and vegetables 4-12 hours, the longer the better, grill on skewers or under broiler.


    three:

    Olive Oil
    2 Large Onions -- crush
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
    Salt And Pepper -- to taste


    Marinate choice of meats and vegetables 4-12 hours, the longer the better, grill on skewers or under broiler.




    1/2 Cup Yogurt
    1 Large Onion -- crushed
    Salt And Pepper -- to taste
    Marinate choice of meats and vegetables 4-12 hours, the longer the better, grill on skewers or under broiler
    chicken thighs can be juicier, but more messy.




    i got these off some website , cant remember where, but hope it helps xxxxx
