Barbecue Chicken Open-Sandwich

For those who have been reading my blog from the very start, you may recognise this. It’s one of my favourite ‘quick dinners’ and was the subject of my very first recipe post. Looking back at earlier posts I am pretty amazed at how much better my photos have become. I’m still using a cheap point-and-shoot but I pay a bit more attention to lighting and composition now. I didn’t want this yummy recipe to be stuck in time with a bad photo, so I thought I should re-post it. Click here for the original pic!

You can eat it like I do with caramelised onion, roasted red peppers and baby spinach, heaped on top of crusty garlic bread. Or you could use the chicken some other way, like skewers perhaps.

Spicy Paprika Pasta

I came up with this pasta dish a while back, during a bit of experimentation, and I fell in love with it. It’s probably not as original as I would have liked to think, but it is a bit different to your typical red pasta sauce. It’s slightly creamy, with a hint of spiciness and the smoky flavours of paprika. The paprika is very mild so most of the spice comes from thin slices of hot pepperoni. I usually add chicken as well for the protein and texture; it doesn’t add much flavour-wise.

The vital ingredient however, is Dolmio Spicy Peppers pasta sauce. I’ve raved before about my love of this particular pasta sauce. It’s so versatile; it’s fantastic with a little cream in a pasta sauce, good in mexican food, and it’s even great for pizza bases. It’s not really cheating if you just use it as a base, right?
