As you all know from my previous post I am soooo proud that I managed to make top notch yorkies!  So I decided to make some mini toad in the holes for my Jubilee Celebration.  Here is the recipe for my yorkies – https://kscookinginthekitchen.wordpress.com/2012/04/08/yorkshire-puddings/ and then simply add one or two chunks of cooked sausage (I made some links the night before) before putting in the oven.  I served with some buttered baby potatoes and I made some onion gravy – but to be honest – its too complicated to post the method for making the gravy cos I ‘steal’  it when I am making stewed sausage – so when I make my legendary stewed sausage I will post the recipe then – I plan to within the next week or two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a warm and hearty stew.  It will probably be the last time I cook it until Winter because Summer is defo here!  The smells that come from this dish are amazing!  I like to make the casserole a day in advance because the garlic and rosemary really fuse together with the flavour from the chicken and vegetables.  So I made this on Thursday and we had it last night for dinner!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 uncooked chicken fillets, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 1 carrot chopped into thick rounds
  • 1 onion sliced thickly
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped small
  • sprig of rosemary  – take off the sprig and chop
  • stock/gravy – I use 5 heaped teaspoons of bisto beef powder
  • 600mls cold water
  • have a thickener for the gravy on standby incase lots of juice from the chicken thins the gravy – eg cornflour – I use Bisto chicken granules

METHOD

1)  Pre heat oven to 180* fan. 

2)   Put carrot, onion, garlic, rosemary and chicken into a big casserole dish

3)  Add the bisto powder to 100mls of water and mix until dissolved, then add to dish

4)   Add remaining water and mix through

5)   Place lid on dish and put in oven for about 1hr 10 mins stir half way.  Judge for yourself – its really until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are soft.

As usual I forgot to take a photo once plated up – we had it with creamy mashed potatoes and mashed turnip – it is really an ideal winter warmer!  So no more for my family until it is nearly Santa Claus time! lol
