Chicken Mince Recipes
We haven't made much with chicken mince lately, and have our favourite recipe for chicken mince that I have posted on my main blog here, a long time ago lol (2008). I have been looking through my old foodie magazines, my husband put them in a box, just foodie magazines, and I look through one a day when the sun streams through my window during this record cold winter.
I found a page with various minces (ground meat) including another of my favourites, pork mince. The pork mince one hasn't been published on the Taste site so I will type it up, and try it when I got shopping normally again, maybe in a month or so.
Edited to say that on Wednesday night after I posted this, we had a BBQ chicken and tabouli mix as per my menu plan. However we didn't have olive oil (usually it is always there in the cupboard) to make up the tabouli. So I happened to find this recipe (was not related to this post or memory of finding it at all, because I didn't remember lol).
Anyway, the recipe is lovely. We usually make a paella from the McCormick's site. This was just as nice, and the saffron didn't bother us. I vaguely remember Gillian McKeith saying, perhaps on Ready Steady Cook, that basmati rice is easy to digest? Anyway, that is what I found, this paella is very soft and nice. We will be making it again, with double the paprika.
In case I have missed any other great chicken mince recipes I am doing a search. Previously when we first started using chicken mince, we made chicken balls and chicken lasagne. The other recipe is a pasta recipe, creamy. So to find something different and practical, more practical than the balls.
Easy Chicken Chow Mein
Something to go with packets of tabouli mix:
Moroccan Chicken Rissoles
Creamy Chicken & Spinach Bake features pumpkin and crushed potato chips
My reference point (though vague without the thought of actually eating it at this stage) is what would I like to cook if I had chicken mince
