Christmas Turkey Pesto Surprise!

Ok, I don’t want to torture you with anticipation so, the surprise is cream! We should all have the following in the fridge and larder as its Boxing Day;

Cooked turkey
Pesto (come on, surely you have some pesto?!)
Pasta shapes (whatever shapes you fancy)
Single Cream (probably left over from Christmas Day because everyone went for the brandy cream instead.)
Bit of oil.

Put pasta on to boil
Re-heat the turkey in the frying pan with a little oil
Add a heaped teaspoon of pesto to the turkey.
Pour in some cream when you have 4 more mins left on your pasta, so that the consistency is a good sauce-like consistency (I know, I’m a very technical chef).
When pasta is boiled just mix in with the turkey sauce.

Mmm tasty. The children might even eat it…

Honey Chicken

Honey chicken, doesn’t actually have any honey in it but has golden syrup in instead. I call it honey chicken because my kids like honey and will assume it’s tasty. If you find this morally objectionable then feel free to call it “golden syrup chicken” instead! This should only take about 12 minutes, depending on how long your rice takes to cook.

So here’s what you’ll need:

Toasted sesame oil (just a splash)
Sunflower oil ( an even smaller splash to stop the sesame oil from burning)
A breast of chicken (this seems fine for my 3 kids)
Sweet corn
Broccoli
Golden syrup
Rice (enough for however many kids you have!)

So, firstly, put your rice on to boil. Then warm the oil and add the chicken which should be diced into small squares. When the chicken has browned then add the sweetcorn and the broccoli until they are soft. When they’re all cooked, squeeze some golden syrup over the food and stir. I don’t add much but do it to taste. When the rice has cooked then add the chicken to the rice and stir.

“Is that it?”‘ I hear you cry! Yes it freaking well is, ha!
