Nuts & Bolts

1. In a large mixing bowl add all the  marinade ingredient and mix well. Add chicken pieces, cover all the chicken with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or over night for a better result.

2. In a large frying pan on medium heat add oil and chicken pieces skin side down first and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. Once chicken has been cooked, remove and set aside for later. (Do not discard oil in pan as this will be used to cook the sauce).

3. In the same pan on medium heat add garlic, chilli and shallot,  cook for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add white wine and reduce liquid down by half. Add chicken stock, thyme and butter beans, mix well. Season to taste.

4. Reduce heat to low - medium, return chicken pieces back to pan, skin side up and cook for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked all the way through to the bone.

I live in Adelaide (Australia) with my husband, my two adorable Norwegian cats ( Zeus and Zena ), a chicken, and a pigeon who now also thinks that he is a chicken! My ancestry is French so it goes without saying that my favourite place is Paris. The food, culture and atmosphere of Paris is nothing short of amazing.

I am a self taught home cook who loves big flavours in food. My passion for food surfaced when I was 10 years old, watching TV chef Ian Hewitson and learning different techniques. Since then, the food of Adrian Richardson and Jamie Oliver has been my inspiration. I love how one can create a healthy full flavoured meal from just the simplest of ingredients. I especially love chilli and garlic and use them in most of my food.

I enjoy hosting dinner parties for friends and family. Curries and rustic style dishes are my firm favorites and I know that my family and friends all agree! Just place it all in the middle of the table and let everyone help themselves enjoying great food with good company.

I create flavoursome low calorie recipes which are featured on the internationally known website Weigh Yourself Slim.

Whilst I enjoy cooking I still love to go out to restaurants, especially when you discover ones with amazing food and that you must try and replicate at home!

So welcome to CCKFOOD. It is my creative playground where I am able to share my love of good food with you all. Enjoy.
