Rubber Chicken- Part 3 – Fakeaway – Sweet Chilli Chicken and Cashew

The end of the week is in sight, and by Thursday most of us are flagging and it is tempting to grab the takeaway menu – don’t spend the money, make a Fakeaway – I still have a load of my Rubber Chicken left, it is sat in the freezer, waiting to be put to good use. See my Part 1Β andΒ Part 2Β here.

I start my peeling and chopping and onion into fairly large chunks, and finely dicing a fat clove of garlic and gently fry, a green pepper chopped into bite size chunks and cooked down a bit, then add chopped up left over cooked chicken, and stir though, I am adding a good glug of homemade Chilli Sauce Recipe

Just before serving, I add some cashew nuts – if they are salted, rinse them off first, I have added a couple of sliced spring onions too as they needed using. And a final fling of chopped Corriander.

I am serving this with brown rice, using the absorbsion method, a cup of rice to 2.5 cups of cold water, and a small knob of butter, all into a lidded pan and heat till boiling, turn down to a simmer for a few minutes, then turn off the heat, leaving the lid on till the rice has absorbed the water – done πŸ€—

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
