Our 6 Favourite Chicken Recipes

Chicken recipes to suit every occasion, whether you’re cooking to impress, comfort, or stock up on a week’s worth of lunches. We also answer the age-old question: how do I cook a fancy meal that sates my craving for copious amounts of peanut butter?

Chicken Stuffed with Mozzarella, Tomato & Basil

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooks for: 30 minutes

This artisan stuffed chicken looks gourmet and tastes bloody brilliant. We highly recommend it if you’re cooking to impress: suitable for dates, in-laws, or convincing your parents that you’re not entirely talentless.

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooks for: 2-4 hours

This is the first recipe we christened our slow cooker with, and it remains a firm favourite almost a year down the line. Who knew peanut butter and a handful of crushed peanuts could be vital components to such a legitimate main course meal.

Ariel’s tip: Cook some broccoli on the side and then mix it in – it’s amazing with the sauce!

Creamy Cheesy Chicken and Garlic Quinoa Bake

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooks for: 45 minutes

Do you want to make a pasta bake, but you’re feeling too middle class? Unsurprisingly, quinoa may be the answer. In all seriousness, this is probably our favourite of the five—it’s certainly the one we make the most. It’s a (mostly) healthy take on creamy, cheesy comfort food.

Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooks for: 20 minutes

As easy as it is tasty and the quickest of the lot. If you don’t have fresh ginger, ground ginger is fine, and if you don’t have any oyster sauce, just go and buy some. Recipes like this take the mysticism away from Chinese takeaways and make you realise you can probably do it better yourself.

Ariel’s tip: You can substitute prawn, tofu or turkey for the chicken and play around with the veggies. It’s hard to go wrong with this one.

Thai Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooks for: 30 minutes

Stuff the Swedes. Thailand is the country that really makes meatballs shine. And while you might say you can make perfectly fine Thai food without peanut butter as a core ingredient, quite frankly I don’t want to hear it. This remains the only Thai meal I’ve seen where a side of mashed potatoes is recommended.

Action Bronson’s Chicken Parm

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooks for: 30 minutes

Fuck, that is indeed delicious. Action Bronson’s Chicken Parm is comfort food on steroids. It’s crunchy, tasty, messy and incredibly fun to make. I suspect this may be the least healthy chicken parm recipe in existence—using 500ml of olive oil in a single session was a first—but that’s what you get with Action Bronson. I could not recommend this more strongly as a one-off, just don’t make it a lifestyle choice.

Next time you fancy chicken while dining out, look no further than the chicken kara-age & chicken tikka at The Gladstone Arms.
