Roast Chicken and Avocado Open Sandwich


Today my other half created this amazing open sandwich which consisted of roast chicken, avocado, british Pomodorino tomatoes, and an organic white bloomer from Sainsbury’s – all topped off with a drizzle of Nando’s Medium Peri-Peri Sauce. It was amazing!

Spicy Turkey Dippers


On Sunday evening I was peckish and stuck for healthy, cheap and tasty meal ideas. All I had in the fridge were two turkey breasts.

This is what I did with them, and it turned about amazingly well:

  •  Heated up very little olive oil in a wok.
  • Cut up two turkey breasts into thin strips.
  • Cooked the strips in the wok with a good sprinkling chilli flakes.
  • Seasoned with salt and pepper.

I was craving ‘chicken dippers’ that day too, which inspired me to serve the strips with three small bowls of sauce, for dipping:

  • Nando’s Medium Peri-Peri Sauce
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • Jalapeño Salsa

It was a very spicy experience, REALLY easy to make and great fun too!

Five Reasons Why I Love Nando’s

1. The simple, yet effective menu: You can choose your meal (either a burger, a pitta, a wrap, chicken wings, half a chicken or a whole chicken). Then you choose your flavour (either extra hot, hot, medium, plain, lemon & herb or mango & lime). Then a choice of a few sides. Easy!

2. The chocoalte cheesecake. Definitely one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever tasted. Crunchy on top and delicious with ice-cream.

3. All of their chicken is grilled over an open flame and never fried, meaning lower fat content and better taste! The PERi-PERi marinade used on their chickens “contains no preservatives, no colourants and no artificial flavours, so is totally natural and healthy”.

4. Their free loyalty card. Every time you spend £6/€6 or more at Nando’s, they stamp your card. Once you get three stamps you receive a free 1/4 chicken. Once you get six stamps you get a free 1/2 chicken. And when you get your tenth stamp you get a FREE WHOLE CHICKEN!!

5. It tastes so good!
